Inside, the cars receive a revised centre console, a redesigned steering wheel, improved technology, and "six new upholstery choices, three new fascia options and two new interior color lines for door and side panels." A new Inverse color option (Chili red roof / door mirrors, Black Challenge alloy wheels, anthracite instruments, Chili red interior trim, and black lounge leather seats with red piping) will also be available on the JCW models.
Under the hood, the PSA-sourced diesel engine is replaced by a 1.6-liter units from BMW in two power levels. Featuring all-aluminum construction, common rail direct injection and a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry, the diesels produce 89 hp (90 PS / 66 kW) and 215 Nm (Mini One D Hatch) and 110 hp (112 PS / 82 kW) and 270 Nm of torque (Cooper D Hatch). More importantly, for both models, fuel efficiency climbs to 3.8 liters per 100 kilometers (74.3 mpg imp) while CO2 emissions decrease to 99 g/km. In terms of performance, the One D Hatch runs from 0-62 mph in 11.4 seconds and hits a top speed of 115 mph (185 km/h). Likewise, the more powerful Cooper D Hatch accelerates from 0-62 mph in 9.7 seconds and has a top speed of 123 mph (198 km/h).
To spread fuel efficiency further across the range, MINI will introduce the new Cooper D Convertible. It boasts the aforementioned 110 hp (112 PS / 82 kW) diesel engine, which allows it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 10.3 seconds and hit a top speed of 121 mph (195 km/h). In terms of efficiency, the engine returns 70 mpg (imp) and emits 105 g/km of CO2.
The last diesel models are One D Clubman and the Cooper D Clubman. The One D uses the 89 hp (90 PS / 66 kW) engine, while the Cooper D is powered by the 110 hp (112 PS / 82 kW) unit. In the One D 0-62 mph takes 11.8 seconds, the top speed is 114 mph (183 km/h), combined fuel efficiency is 72.4 mpg (imp), and CO2 emissions are 103 g/km. On the other hand, the Cooper D Clubman scoots from 0-62 mph in 10.2 seconds, tops out at 123 mph (198 km/h), returns a combined 72.4 mpg (imp) and emits 103 grams of CO2 per km.
