The British subsidiary of BMW Group decided to partially reveal the new MINI Coupé by releasing full technical details while the photo gallery attached to the document is represented by few shots taken while testing the model, still with a camouflage layer especially in the rear.
First of all, the British manufacturer releases the dimension of their new two-door model. The new MINI Coupé has a length of 3,72 meters, a width of 1,6 meters while the wheelbase measures 2,46 meters.
Complete details on the engine range are available as well, the British company offering three petrol units but also a diesel variant. Starting with the fuel-optimized unit, the MINI Cooper SD Coupé features a 2.0-liter unit offering 141 horsepower and 305 Nm of torque. The fuel consumption figures stop at 4,3 liters/100 km in the EU test cycle while the model issues 114 g/km CO2.
The entry level version of the new MINI Coupé features a 1.6-liter engine able to produce 121 horsepower and 160 Nm of torque. The next proposal is the MINI Cooper S Coupé which packs a 1.6-liter turbo unit able to produce 181 horsepower and 240 Nm of torque. If you want more power, the MINI John Cooper Works Coupé is the correct answer as if features a 1.6-liter turbocharged unit able to deliver 207 horsepower and 260 Nm of torque while an overboost function will give you extra 20 Nm of torque.
With such resources, and with a little help from a six-speed manual transmission, the most powerful variant of the British model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6,4 seconds while the top speed reaches 240 km/h. The fuel consumption is not extremely big considering the performance, the MINI JCW Coupé providing an average fuel consumption of 7,1 liters/100 km and issues 165 g/km CO2.
In order to obtain improved performance, MINI used some systems found in the BMW’s engine such as the fully variable control technology better known as Valvetronic. Systems such as Auto Start/Stop, Shift Point Display, Brake Energy Regeneration and Electric Power Steering help the new MINI Coupe, whatever the version, to obtain exceptionally low CO2 emissions, as the official press release states.
