The 2025 Mini Cooper 5-Door is scheduled for release in Australian markets later this year, following an update that includes changes to its exterior and interior.

The model, which extends the body and includes an extra set of doors compared to the three-door variant, will be available from the fourth quarter of the year.

The exterior updates mirror those seen on the recently announced three-door version, maintaining the vehicle’s familiar dimensions but with a refreshed design that includes new front fascia and triangular LED tail-lights.

Inside, the Mini Cooper 5-Door introduces a 9.4-inch circular OLED touchscreen that runs on the new Operating System 9, featuring functionalities like satellite navigation and voice commands.

The interior layout has been simplified, with environmental considerations such as recycled materials for the dashboard.

The cockpit does not have a dedicated instrument cluster but instead integrates critical display functions within the central touchscreen and a supplementary head-up display.

Functionality within the cabin includes a streamlined console with toggle switches for the gear selector, parking brake, and other controls.

There are seven drive modes available, each with distinct settings and display themes designed to enhance driver interaction with the vehicle.

Power options for the Mini Cooper 5-Door start with the Cooper C model, which uses a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine providing 115kW and 230Nm of torque.

This model can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 8.0 seconds and has a fuel consumption range of 6.0-6.6L/100km.

The Cooper S variant features a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with 150kW and 300Nm, achieving 0-100km/h in 6.8 seconds.

Both models come equipped with enhancements such as larger tyres and optional adaptive dampers to potentially improve handling.

While the petrol versions of the Mini Cooper 5-Door are receiving updates, there will be no new electric version in this range.

Instead, Mini is expanding its electric offerings with models like the new Aceman electric city SUV.

Pricing and more detailed specifications for the Mini Cooper 5-Door will be disclosed as its launch date approaches.
