Venturing six hours west of Stockholm, one encounters Anttila (Torsby) a locale steeped in historical past, together with a rally historical past, and boasting beautiful frozen lakes. It was right here, a number of weeks in the past, that I launched into an journey alongside a set of traditional Minis—a narrative we’re excited to share quickly. Moreover, I had the chance to check among the newest choices from the famend Oxford-based producer: the MINI Countryman John Cooper Works and the F66 Cooper S, enhancing our expertise on this picturesque setting.

A Minimalistic Design

Final month in Lisbon, I had the chance to drive the brand new Countryman JCW, which was an thrilling driving expertise. Nevertheless, my anticipation was even higher for the F66 Cooper S. Regrettably, the driving impressions for this car are underneath embargo till early summer season, which meant my focus shifted primarily to exploring the design and technological options of the refreshed Cooper.

Seen beneath in Ocean Wave, a brand new paint choice for the Cooper household, the F66 S sits on the prime of the lineup, till the John Cooper Works variant is launched. Alongside Ocean Wave, MINI will provide a variety of exterior colours: the non-metallic Sunny Aspect Yellow and Chili Purple II and the metallic Blazing Blue, Melting Silver III, Nanuq White, British Racing Inexperienced, and Midnight Black. Inside, there’s vegan upholstery in Beige and Nightshade Beige together with a mix of vegan and fabric upholstery in black/blue and gray/blue combos. The automotive I noticed had the latter.

Over 200 Horsepower

Specs clever, the F66 MINI Cooper S is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder – BMW’s B48 mill – and a seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission. It makes 201 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque which can pull the 2025 MINI Cooper S from zero to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds. The 2025 MINI Cooper is on the market in three trim ranges: Signature, Signature Plus, and Iconic. Inside, the middle piece is the 9.4 inches OLED display which is powered by the Working System 9. All the cabin has been redesigned in comparison with the outgoing mannequin and within the video beneath, I clarify a few of these modifications.

A New Inside Design

In fact, it’s the outside that’s a bit extra controversial. A few of the iconic MINI components, just like the hood scoop, aspect scuttles and exhaust pipes are gone. As an alternative, the designers centered on minimalistic cues which hold the F66 near its all-electric brother, the J01 Cooper. There are a number of variations between the 2 fashions, although, and I’m going over them on this video evaluate. Lastly, I discover the inside area within the automotive and among the storage choices which have been cleverly built-in inside the design.  So let’s check out the 2025 MINI Cooper S and keep tuned for a full driving evaluate within the close to future!
