MINI India is accepting pre-bookings for the new-generation Cooper S and Countryman E SUV with the booking window now opened on the brand’s website. The new-generation MINI Cooper 3-door and Countryman Electric made their global debuts in September last year. The 3-door hot hatch is in its fourth generation and gets an evolutionary design update that gives the model familiar looks albeit with a host of new lines and tech. The new Countryman Electric has gone through a similar overhaul while growing in proportions.

2025 MINI Cooper S: New Styling

The new MIN Cooper S gets a redesigned grille, new round LED headlamps with three customisable LED DRL signatures. The overall lines are cleaner than before with flatter surfaces all over. The silhouette remains identical on the Cooper S, while the rear gets an updated version of the Union Jack-themed taillights.

The cabin sports a minimalist theme carrying the large round 9.4-inch infotainment display in the centre console with the MINI Operating System 9, which also houses most controls in the car. The unit also doubles up as the instrument console, while a head-up display is now placed ahead of the steering wheel. MINI has retained some of the familiar elements including the toggle switches for the experience modes, parking brake, gear selector, and start-stop switch. There’s ambient lighting to light up the cabin in multiple colours.

2025 MINI Cooper S: Specifications

Powering the MINI Cooper S will be the 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine tuned for 201 bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. Compared to its predecessor, the new offering gets a 25 bhp and 20 Nm bump in power. 0-100 kmph comes up in 6.6 seconds, 0.1 seconds faster than the older version, while power goes to the front wheels using a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The automaker has also revealed the new-gen electrified Cooper SE, which could arrive at a later date.
