BMW Press Release


Small car, big opportunities: The world premier of two additional MINI models will be celebrated at the 77th International Motor Show in Geneva. The new MINI One and the new MINI Cooper D are being presented to the world public for the first time in Geneva from the 8th to the 18th of March 2007.

Just a few months after the successful debut of the new MINI Cooper S and the new MINI Cooper, there are now four versions of the compact front wheel drive available. Then the new MINI One, the "basic" version of this compact front-wheel-drive performer, will be on the starting grid with a 70 kW/95 hp 1.4-litre four-cylinder gasoline engine. Thanks to modern aluminium construction and fully variable valve control, this petrol drive is also impressive through its spontaneous power development and high degree of economy. The new
MINI Cooper D, on the other hand, features a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel developing maximum output of 80 kW/110 hp for sporting performance, impressive power, and superior efficiency.

Like the MINI Cooper S (128 kW/175 hp) and the MINI Cooper (88 kW/120 hp) already introduced very successfully into the market, the new versions are powered by brand-new engines for even more motoring fun and, at the same time, a significant reduction in both fuel consumption and emissions. The new MINI One completes the EU test cycle with an average fuel consumption of just 5.7 litres/100 kilometres, equal to 49.6 mpg Imp. The MINI Cooper D, in turn, requires just 4.4 litres of diesel fuel for 100 kilometres (equal to a staggering 64.2 mpg Imp), and is therefore the most fuel-efficient MINI ever built.
