More space, more comfort, more class: the MINI Cooper 5-door in the Resolute Edition.

Munich. All the qualities of the original,
supplemented with a definite bonus in terms of functionality – this is
how the MINI 5-door secures its exceptional position in the premium
small car segment. It combines authentic driving fun and expressive
design in the style of the British brand with two additional doors and
an extra portion of space at the rear. The Resolute Edition of the
MINI 5-door showcases a unique combination of traditional sporty flair
and enhanced versatility in a particularly attractive way. The new
edition model enriches the distinctive character of the MINI 5-door
with precisely coordinated design and equipment features that convey
self-confidence, individual class and a historically rooted enthusiasm
for motor racing.

The MINI 5-door in the Resolute Edition (combined fuel consumption:
6.1 – 5.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 139 – 126 g/km WLTP) lines
up for the start with maximum driving fun potential. It combines the
exclusive design features of the Edition with the clear and reduced
surface design for the front and rear apron, which emphasise the
modern character of the vehicle, focused on the essentials. A
1.5-litre 3-cylinder engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology and a
maximum output of 100 kW/136 hp ensures spirited driving
characteristics. With both the standard 6-speed manual transmission
and the optional 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch,
the sprint from standstill to 100 km/h takes just 8.3 seconds. The
car’s top speed is 207 km/h.

In the new Resolute Edition, the powerful appearance of the         
    MINI Cooper 5-door is underpinned by an exterior finish in the
Rebel Green variant. Previously only available for the extremely
sporty John Cooper Works models, this body finish draws its
inspiration from the colour scheme used for classic British racing
cars. The roof and exterior mirror caps of the edition model are
finished in the contrasting colour Pepper White or optionally in
black. Numerous hallmark design features are finished in the exclusive
colour Resolute Bronze. The refined appearance of this
edition-specific finish is highlighted by the surrounds of the
headlights, radiator grille and rear lights, the side scuttles on the
front side panels and the door and tailgate handles. The brand logos
and model inscriptions are finished in Piano Black, as are the inner
frame of the radiator grille and the tailpipe trims of the exhaust
system. The surrounding strip on the lower edge of the windows in
classic black likewise complements the exclusive appearance of the
edition model.

Meanwhile the eponymous “RESOLUTE” inscription is the striking
feature of the bonnet stripes and door sill finishers. Both feature a
pattern made up of parallel lines with a colour gradient that runs
between a light and a dark shade of gold. This asymmetrical gradient
especially reflects the high-quality design of the edition model.
18-inch light-alloy wheels in Pulse Spoke Black design round off the
sporty look of the MINI Cooper 5-door in the Resolute Edition. 17-inch
alloy wheels also available in the Tentacle Spoke Black variant as an option.

In its interior, the MINI Cooper 5-door in the Resolute Edition
offers five seats and thanks to a wheelbase that is 72 millimetres
longer than that of the MINI 3-door, there is noticeably more legroom
at the rear. The ample interior space also means that the
edition-specific design features are showcased to excellent effect.
The anthracite-coloured roof liner and sports seats in Black
Pearl/Light Chequered fabric/leatherette along with black armrests and
knee rolls make for athletic flair and a high level of ride comfort –
a colour scheme that harmonises perfectly with the Rebel Green paint
finish and the black and gold exterior design features. The MINI Yours
Leather Lounge variant is also available on request in Carbon Black
with particularly striking stitching and piping as well as a
perforated Union Jack motif on the headrests. With its Nappa leather
cover, the sports steering wheel with edition emblem on the lower
spoke is particularly comfortable to hold.

Parallel and evenly curved lines in a light golden tone form an
exquisite pinstripe pattern against the black background of the
edition-specific interior surfaces, echoing the structure of the
bonnet stripes. The exclusive design features are atmospherically
showcased by the lighting package, whose LED units provide targeted
interior illumination. Ambient Light – also included in the equipment
of the edition model – enriches the stylish atmosphere with such
features as a laser-engraved ring for the central instrument and also
light piping in the doors and cockpit area, as well as illuminated
door handles and door entry areas. In addition, the MINI Cooper 5-door
in the Resolute Edition features the MINI Driving Modes, allowing the
driver to activate sporty characteristics in the vehicle’s drive and
suspension systems by means of a toggle switch.
