MINI has introduced the new Cooper SD and Cooper One First.
The Cooper SD is the "most powerful diesel variant" as it features a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 170 PS (125 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds - 7.2 seconds with the optional six-speed Steptronic transmission - and average 4.0-4.1 L/100km (57.3-58.8 mpg US / 68.9-70.6 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 104-110 g/km.
If that's too fast and fuel efficient, the One First has a 1.2-liter TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder diesel engine that produces 75 PS (55 kW) and 150 Nm (110 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the hatchback to run from 0-100 km/h in 12.8 seconds and average 5.0-5.2 L/100km (45.2-47 mpg US / 54.3-56.4 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 117-122 g/km.
Both models will go on sale in July and in the United Kingdom the Cooper SD will be priced from £19,450 OTR.
