Mini unveils details of new Coupe

Mini is planning to expand its product range with the launch of its new Mini Coupe to make driving more fun for motorists.

Due to be available later this year, the two-seater car is set to delight drivers with its trendy curved roof and pronounced tail.

Mini is yet to release pricing and other information regarding the new model.

The Mini Coupe's sleek features are expected to boost its position in the super-compact sports car class.

Despite being compact, the car has a lot of luggage space behind the seats which can be accessed through the boot.

The Coupe boasts the most sturdy engines offered by the brand, with models ranging from the new SD diesel unit to the Coopers S Works offering 208bhp.

All Mini Coupe models will feature a distinctive bodyshell as well as an updated suspension aimed to achieve top performance.
