« Back Mini Cooper S Sport
Win a Mini Cooper S in the BOTB Dream Car competition!
When Mini launched the new Cooper S in 2001 it set a new benchmark for the segment. Fast, fun, with great handling and terrific styling meant that sales went through the roof and continued right through the second generation model which was sold worldwide to great success.
But times change and now Mini has released the third generation of Cooper S, with its third facelift! With a new 2.0 litre turbo engine putting out 176 bhp the Cooper S certainly has the speed – 6.8 seconds to 62 mph and a 146 top speed are pretty quick, but also despite being bigger than the predecessor it still handles like a go-kart.
The latest facelift brings with it a revised front bumper with a more modern look, while inside there's all sorts of new tech and a digital dash for the driver.
