The new MINI Cooper SD is billed as the most powerful diesel variant and there is also new entry-level gasoline engine model MINI One First.

With these two new engines there are soon seven power units available for the new MINI model.

The Cooper SD is powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with 170 hp and 360 Nm of torque. Its MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology has a turbocharging system with variable turbine geometry and common rail injection with magnet valve injectors.

Depending on the transmission and tyre format average fuel consumption is 4.0 to 4.1 litrer per 100 kilometres with CO2 emissions of 106 to 110 grams per kilometer.

The second new engine in the One First uses a 1.2-liter TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder gasoline engine with 75 hp and 150 Nm of torque.
