It was a relaxed Sunday and I was basking in the winter sunshine after having my brunch! Just then my phone rings and a executive of BMW's dealership Bird Automotive is on the line stating that the newly launched Mini Cooper 5 Door has arrived and I can have a look on it.
Boom!! I race towards my shoe-rack and wear shoes and run towards my Dream-liner jet (Honda City I-Vtec) and then starts my journey to the BMW dealership and my driver drove I was all excited to see what was in store for me there.
Believe me, I am not disappointed at all by what I saw!
Here is the first exclusive pictorial review of the BMW's new Mini Cooper 5 Door launched recently.
The car reviewed today by me is the Electric Blue Mini Cooper Diesel with 6 Speed Automatic Transmission with a price tag of INR 35 Lakh 20 Thousand and reaches 0 to 100 in 9.2 seconds.
The car is perfectly designed for the youth with neatly placed and uniquely styled side indicators which are complemented by the chrome door handles and contrast color (White) ORVMs and roof.
Speaking of the design, we further have the neatly designed Chrome front grill which keeps alive the basic look of Mini Cooper since generations.
Moving ahead, the chrome surrounds of the front projector headlamps remind us of the exciting yet elegant character that they give to the car. Below them are the well placed front fog lamps to further improve the visibility while driving.
Now lets get inside the new Mini Cooper and check it out!
The first thing that will catch your eye are the well finished interiors. The front display panel is quite informative.

Then we have the sporty steering wheel with the mounted controls and chrome garnish.
After this there is the Automatic Air Conditioner with chrome surrounds on the knob and below that we have the start stop button which is looking un-conventional but well complemented by a really cool gear shift stick of the automatic transmission.
In between the front seats and hand brake we have the well placed and accessible entertainment panel controller with chrome surrounds that further enhances the driving pleasure.
