Cairo – May 13th, 2018
At its annual Sohour Party which took place at the 1920s Boutique Hotel & Restaurants, the Bavarian Auto Group unveiled the latest range of MINI models for the year 2019 – the MINI 3 DOOR, the MINI 5 DOOR and the MINI CABRIO convertible.
These improved design models were first unveiled in the Egyptian market. The new models, from a generation that was first introduced in 2014, will benefit from new LEDs with stronger lighting and new exterior paint options. From the inside, the cars got a new 6.5-inch touch screen plus a multi-function steering wheel.
Among the things to be seen from the very first moment in the new MINI cabin is the transmission stick that controls the new “Steptronic” gearbox. Of course, the rear lights that were designed to reflect the British flag can not be overlooked in the gesture of the history and heritage of Mini. The design gestures that can also be seen to differ from previous models are the wheels, where the design has been slightly modified to become more dynamic.
The 1.5 liter engine is equipped with Mini’s Twinpower Turbo and Direct Injection, and the engine generates 136 horsepower with a maximum torque of 220 Nm. “Both the MINI 3 DOOR and the MINI DOOR 5 can reach a knot to 100 with this engine within 7.9 and 8.2 seconds and record a maximum speed of 210 and 207 km / h, respectively,” the company states in its statement. “The new MINI CABRIO can reach 100 km / h in 8.8 seconds and record a maximum speed of 208 km / h. ”
