7/8-Speed steptronic transmission (optional).

Gearbox & Engine

The MINI Cooper S model boasts an optional 7-speed Steptronic sport automatic transmission that shifts to the next gear while the previous one is still active, improving acceleration.


The John Cooper Works model offers an optional 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission for a sportier drive. The extra gears reduce the number of revs at high speed, while Steptronic lets you choose between automatic ease or manual thrill.


The optional Start/Stop function makes driving more economical - reducing fuel consumption, noise and emissions. You can also opt for the Steptronic sport transmission, where the gears’ gradation reduces the engine's rev interval between shifts, giving you the ultimate power boost.
