2025 Mini Cooper hatch Australian pricing and specifications confirmed for petrol and electric car versions of British icon

The new Mini will arrive in petrol and electric variants, both in Q3 this year.

Mini Australia has detailed the next-gen version of its iconic hatchback, the Mini Cooper, set to arrive in Australia in the third quarter of 2024.

With pricing starting from $41,990 before on-road costs, the new-gen Cooper is only marginally more expensive than the current car, which starts at $40,725.

A new line-up structure means variants don’t carry over - there are six petrol grades available over two drivetrain choices; Cooper C and Cooper S both have three grades each, while there are two distinct electric drivetrain setups: E and SE.

The entry Cooper C, available in ‘Core’, ‘Classic’ and ‘Favoured’, runs on a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine making 115kW and 230Nm, driving the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The Core trim level, despite being the cheapest available in the new Cooper range, still comes with features like parking sensors at the front and rear, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging and sports seats.

The S starts at Classic trim, stepping up to the Favoured and then the JCW Sport trim.

The step up to Classic at $44,990 adds things like surround-view cameras, heated seats, a glass roof, adaptive cruise control and Mini’s ‘augmented reality’ navigation. The Favoured ($47,990) gains a Harman/Kardon 12-speaker sound system to replace the six-speaker standard one, plus electric adjustment for its John Cooper Works seats.

In the Cooper S, the engine is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol unit that makes 150kW and 300Nm, good for a 0-100km/h sprint in a claimed 6.6 seconds.

There are six petrol grades available over two drivetrain choices; Cooper C and Cooper S both have three grades each.

The S starts at Classic trim, stepping up to the Favoured and then the JCW Sport trim, which gains JCW styling plus shift paddles, adaptive suspension and a set of JCW brakes.

The electric Cooper E comes in a single ‘Classic’ trim, and has a 41kWh battery powering a 135kW/290Nm front-mounted motor setup that comes with a claimed WLTP range of 305km.

With pricing starting from ,990 before on-road costs, the new-gen Cooper is only marginally more expensive than the current car.

Standard features are similar to those in the petrol version’s Classic trim, while the SE gets a few extras like a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system and JCW seats. It also has a larger 54kWh battery and more powerful 160kW/330Nm motor with a claimed 403km range.
