Mini five-door UK prices, specs and pictures

Mini has revealed the first five-door version of its smallest hatchback model. Details and images here

If you thought the latest three-door Mini was big, then take a look at its five-door variant. Because BMW has announced it will be selling a ‘more-door’ version of the standard Mini, enabling the not-so-little hatch to compete with the likes of Renault’s Clio and Volkswagen’s Golf – both of which are already available with five doors.

Essentially it looks like the existing three-door, but with an increased wheel base (some 72mm longer) and 3982mm length to cater for the extra two openings. The result sees the boot space increase by a third to 278-litres, with rear passengers enjoying an added 72mm of extra legroom. Rear headroom is also increased with the car sitting 11mm taller.

Powering the larger Mini is the same range of engines offered with the three-door. These include the Cooper’s 136bhp 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine, the Cooper S’ 192bhp 2-litre four-cylinder, as well as sporty diesel variants such as the 116bhp 1.5-litre three cylinder Cooper D and 170bhp 2-litre four-cylinder Cooper SD.

With BMW aiming to offer a Mini for quite literally everyone, we can also expect to see a faster JCW version of the five-door to offer even more thrills. This is likely to feature a more aggressively tuned version of the Cooper S’ 2-litre engine, bringing that car’s 6.8sec 0-60 dash down. With the Renaultsport Clio 200 Turbo and Volkswagen Golf GTI offering five doors with hot hatch performance, the five-door Mini will be entering an already fiercely competitive sector.

That’s not to say it won’t fare well however, because adding a couple of doors is unlikely to douse the exciting and playful chassis we discovered when testing the three-door Cooper S. The first Mini five-door will land in UK showrooms in autumn 2014, with prices starting at £15,900 (£600 more than the three-door). The most expensive five-door will be the Cooper SD at £20,050.
