The Coupé is also the first modern Mini to opt for the traditional three-box body structure, splitting the vehicle up into engine compartment, cabin, and boot. The vehicle is also lower than its brethren, measuring 29mm less than the Mini Hatch despite near-identical dimensions in all other respects.

Orders for the new model are to be taken from the 1st of October, with prices starting at £16,640 on the road.
