BMW India will launch the all-new 2015 Mini Cooper range on the 19th of November. This time around, the adorable hatchback will be available in both three and five door guises.

Powering the Cooper models will be a turbocharged and direct-injected 1.5-liter three-cylinder gas engine mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Output stands at a respectable 134 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. Things start hotting up with the faster Cooper S, which uses the same six-speed gearboxes, but are mated to a 2.0-liter turbo four making 189 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. (An overboost function temporarily bumps the engines’ torque figures to 170 and 221 lb-ft.) Both models are front-wheel drive.

The new Mini loads up on a few grown-up features as well, including a head-up display, camera-based adaptive cruise control, collision and pedestrian-impact warnings, and even an automatic braking function. This sort of gear should, like the pair of rear doors, help expand the Mini’s appeal.
