2012 Mini Cooper Coupe Release Date on 1st October

Mini prides itself on being a trendsetter, although in this case it’s merely jumping aboard the latest industry bandwagon. It’s the first Mini with a traditional three-box design, and it goes on sale October 1, 2011, as the fifth model in the Mini range after the classic hardtop hatch; the convertible; the Clubman; and the Countryman.

The MINI Coupe is strictly a two-seater, sitting 29mm lower than the conventional MINI hatch. It is the first ‘three-box’ car from the company and incorporates what the stylists call a “helmet roof” design.It will become the first MINI with an active rear spoiler and promises to have plenty of storage space, with room behind the seats as well as a wide-opening tailgate revealing a ‘variable-use luggage area’.
