BMW’s owned Mini has unveiled today at Frankfurt the new MINI Coupe.

The launch of the MINI Coupé sees the British premium small car manufacturer taking the next step in its rigorous model range expansion process. The first two-seater in the current range boasts an even sharper focus on delivering unbeatable fun at the wheel the automaker said in a statement in Frankfurt.

The two-seater will be offered from launch with a choice of four engine variants with outputs ranging from the 90 kW/122 hp of the MINI Cooper Coupé and the MINI Cooper SD Coupé’s 105 kW/143 hp to the 135 kW/184 hp developed by the MINI Cooper S Coupé and the 155 kW/211 hp of the sporting flagship, the MINI John Cooper Works Coupé.

According to the manufacturer, the new two-seater measures 3.734 mm x 1.683 mm x 1.384 mm (L x W x H), while the Mini Cooper Coupe has 3.728 mm in length and 1.378 mm in height.

The MINI Coupé is the brand’s first model to adopt a classical three-box structure with a strikingly stepped rear end. The car’s roof has a standard contrasting paint finish, accentuating its distinctive design, while the 280-litre luggage compartment behind the high-opening tailgate reveals impressive functionality.
