2014 MINI Cooper SD continues to remain on its path for growth. As of July 2014, the engine range for the MINI, particularly in the small car premium segment, has continued to expand especially after the success of its market launch. In the future, the selection is expected to include the MINI Cooper SD as having the most power for the diesel engine variant and a new petrol engine for the MINI One First model.
These two models will offer an impressive favorable balance between fuel consumption and driving fun. There are now seven completely and newly developed power units available for cars produced at the British MINI’s Oxford plant. These include three diesel and four petrol engines. The new engines come in three or four cylinders and are paired with the MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology that allows for a boost in the efficiency and agility of the new MINI.
This is seen as well in the newest addition to the program. The engine of the MINI Cooper is perhaps the most power diesel engine under the MINI brand. The 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine for example allows for 170 horsepower in output and 360 Nm of maximum torque at 1,500 rpm. The MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology includes a turbocharging system that has common rail injection and variable turbine geometry having magnet valve injectors that can operate at 2,000 bar of maximum pressure.
This combination allows for a precise fuel supply control and high spontaneous delivery of power. The MINI Cooper is able to reach 0 to 100 km/h is just 7.3 seconds largely in part to the diesel engine’s pulling power. With the 6-speed Steptronic transmission, which is available as an option, the time can be reduced to 7.2 seconds.
Aside from this sporty temperament, the MINI Cooper has CO2 emissions between 106 and 100 grams per kilometer and an average fuel consumption of about 4.0 to 4.1 liters for every 100 kilometers. The MINI One First, on the other hand, utilizes cutting-edge technology to guarantee driving fun that is the hallmark of the brand and combine it with excellent efficiency.
The MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology for this model is a 3-cylinder petrol engine composed of a variable camshaft control on both the exhaust and intake side, petrol direct injection, and of course, turbocharging. This results to a 75 horsepower mobilized from a 1.2-liter capacity.
This new variant entry to petrol engines can also give spontaneous power delivery having 150 Nm of maximum torque at 1,400 rpm. The MINI One First can go 0 to 100 km/h in 12.8 seconds. The CO2 emissions rating of the MINI One First is between 117 and 122 grams per kilometer and its average fuel consumption is around 5.0 to 5.2 liters for every 100 kilometers.
