The leader Mini has arrived! The highest point of-the-line three-entryway Cooper S was authoritatively propelled at a private airstrip on the edges of Mumbai. This is the third portion from the notable British marquee after the two Cooper D models it propelled toward the end of a year ago.

As the name proposes, the Cooper S is a tribute to Mini dashing legend John Cooper, and consequently offers a large group of elements including the most effective motor for a Mini, and top of the line hardware. While the first Mini was a pervasive city auto with brisk speeding up, the last-gen Mini grew a mess greater. This 'new Mini' has become hardly more as well, as you may have perused in our before reports on the Cooper D. In any case, the greater news for this present time's Cooper S is a greater 2.0-liter twin-turbo petrol motor set up of the before 1.6-liter unit. Thus, top power now beat at 189bhp. Crest torque has likewise ascended to 280Nm which implies the auto can conceivably hit 100kph from the halt in only 6.7 seconds, and go ahead to accomplish a top speed of 233kph. This is mated to a six-speed programmed gearbox. Yes, you get paddle moves as well.

Much the same as in the diesel forms, the Cooper S excessively gets three drive modes - Green, Mid, and Sport - that can be chosen from a sliding neckline under the gearshift. Floor the auto in Sports mode and you will be welcomed by a moment snarl from the splendid motor that awakens the gearbox rapidly enough to present to you some moment speeding up. In any of alternate modes, the response is somewhat suppressed with an eye on productivity, however as you go up the rev range and demonstrate some direness, the auto develops speed rather in a flash. It isn't merciless, however then, the Mini Cooper S is not a sportscar. It is a genuine quick hatchback and very few hatchback autos can brag of such moment show of force.

In any case, the Mini's genuine appeal is in the taking care of the office. In spite of the way that it has developed with each progressive era, it remains consistent with its natural should be a fun auto to drive. What's more, no Mini typifies this superior to the Cooper S. In spite of its generally liberal extents, the Cooper S can be thrown into any corner easily. What's more, tossed hard. The auto's propensity to understeer - notwithstanding being a front wheel drive - is extremely hard to incite, however, not unthinkable. The directing is substantial to hold and a bit on the heavier side. In any case, it's to a great extent open and can let you know what the front tires are doing. The tires grasp well and are capable helped by the immaculate mechanical hold of the auto.

One of the benefits of growing more in size is that the Mini now has space for two grown-ups at the back. Yes, it is a cozy fit, yet in the event that you're not very tall, it is agreeable at the back. The Cooper S is just accessible as a three-entryway, so getting to the back seat is a touch of a workout. In any case, once inside, on any seat, you can see how merrily extraordinary the Mini is. The major visual change on the dashboard is that the speedometer has now moved to a more customary position behind the controlling wheel. So the extensive focal show (6.5-inch is standard however a more extensive 8.8-inch screen is accessible as a choice), on the dash is currently the mixed media and auto information center point. Furthermore, this can be controlled by the iDrive framework acquired from BMW.

The Mini Cooper S will be a full import. Which implies no localization or any sort of tax breaks. At ₹34.65 lakh (ex-showroom), it costs precisely ₹2 lakh more than the three-entryway Cooper D. Keeping in mind the Cooper D is an awesome auto to drive as well and can accomplish a 14-15kpl figure, the Cooper S can, in any case, be charming in light of the fact that it takes execution to the following level. What's more, this time, it likewise gets a reasonable measurements of extra standard elements like the Mini Driving Modes, select upholstery, multi-work directing wheel, rain sensor and backstopping separation control - all of which come as discretionary fitment on the Cooper D. Organization guarantees a fuel productivity figure of 15.75kpl, which in this present reality ought to bring about 10-11kpl. Appears to be satisfactory for an auto that you would perpetually drive with energy, dependable.

The numbers

1998cc, four chamber, twin turbo petrol, FWD, 189bhp, 280Nm, 6-speed auto, 0-100kph: 6.7 secs, best speed: 233kph, fuel proficiency: 15.75kpl (guaranteed), ₹34.65 lakh (ex-showroom)

The decision

In Cooper S pretense, this is a genuine confirmation of what Mini is about - little, shrewd and snappy. An aggregate grin-inducer.
