Mini releases the SD and One First

Mini is a British automotive brand owned by BMW which proved it can be a specialist in small cars, too. Mini originated as a specific vehicle, a small car originally known as the Morris Mini-Minor and the Austin Seven, launched by the British Motor Corporation in 1959, and developed into a brand with a range of small cars. Mini means efficient production, economical car and social commitment, all mated to offer a fun driving. The company has just introduced the new Mini Cooper SD and Cooper One First.

The Mini Cooper SD is the most powerful version of the brand. And the 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine is the living proof. The powering unit produces 170 PS (125 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. These figures allow the small hatchback to sprint 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.

On the other hand, the Mini Cooper One First is lazier than its relative the SD. It is set on movement by a 1.2-liter TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder diesel engine that generates 75 PS (55 kW) and 150 Nm (110 lb-ft) of torque. This time the little hatchback accelerates the 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. The two models enter sales in July. The Cooper SD will be priced starting from  £19,450 OTR.
