Under the hood, the petrol Cooper S is powered by the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that develops 189bhp of power and 280Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through the 7-speed dual-clutch Steptronic gearbox propelling it past 100kmph in 6.7 seconds to a top whack of 235kmph. The 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine develops 112bhp of power and 270Nm of torque. The Mini Cooper gets Sport and Green driving modes along with driver aid like cruise control, ESP, rear-view camera and heads-up display.
