The release of the brand new 2014 MINI Cooper seems can transform of generation in the engine area. Initially both 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder engines are applied, almost all offering MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology. Inside the gasoline engines of the new MINI Cooper S and the new MINI Cooper this consists of turbocharging, direct fuel injection, variable camshaft control on the intake and exhaust side (double VANOS) and variable valve control in the form of VALVETRONIC, as patented by the BMW Group.
The diesel-powered engine of the new 2014 MINI Cooper D has a turbocharging system with variable turbine geometry and the latest technology of common rail direct injection with fuel injection pressure increased to 2 000 bar for high-precision fuel metering and clean combustion. The effect: a more boost to driving enjoyable along with increased efficiency and adherence to the EU6 exhaust emission standard. All product options of the new MINI have enhanced engine and driving performance figures while their fuel consumption and emission levels have been reduced as compared to the predecessor models by as much as 27 per cent.
Intended for highly spirited power delivery, the new 2014 MINI Cooper S is motorized by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with a peak output of 141 kW/192 bhp which goes on stream between 4 700 and 6 000 rpm, delivering its maximum torque of 280 Newton metres at 1 250 rpm. The Torque even quickly be increased to 300 Newton meters by means of an overboost function. Consequently, acceleration from zero to 100 km/h takes just 6.8 seconds (automatic: (6.7 seconds), while the top speed is 235 km/h (233 km/h). The normal fuel consumption of the new MINI Cooper S is 5.7 to 5.8 liters (5.2 to 5.4 liters) per 100 kilometres, while its level of CO2 emissions 133 to 136 grams per kilometer (122 to 125 g/km; EU test cycle figures, dependent on tyre format chosen).
With result enhanced by 10 kW/14 bhp to 100 kW/136 bhp between 4 500 and 6 000 rpm and a maximum torque of 220 Newton metres (230 Nm with overboost), now obtainable at 1 250 rpm, the 1.5-litre 3-cylinder fuel engine in the new MINI Cooper also allows much sportier driving performance than the predecessor power unit. The new MINI Cooper sprints in 7.9 seconds (automatic: 7.8 seconds) from standing to 100 km/h, while its top speed is 210 km/h in each circumstance. These statistics are merged with an average fuel consumption which has been reduced to between 4.5 and 4.6 liters (4.7 to 4.8 liters) per 100 kilometers and a CO2 emissions level of 105 to 107 grams per kilometer (109 to 112 g/km; EU test cycle figures, dependent on tyre format selected).
The new 2014 MINI Cooper D also lines up for the start with improved power and a decreased level of fuel consumption as compared to its predecessor. It has a 3-cylinder diesel engine which mobilises its peak output of 85 kW/116 bhp at 4 000 rpm. The maximum torque of 270 Newton metres goes on stream at 1 750 rpm, enabling acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 9.2 seconds with both manual and automatic transmission. The top speed is 205 (204) km/h. The new MINI Cooper D also achieves a new optimum in terms of fuel consumption, with an average of 3.5 to 3.6 liters (3.7 to 3.8 liters) per 100 kilometers. Its level of CO2 emissions is 92 to 95 grams per kilometer (98 to 99 g/km; EU test cycle figures, dependent on tyre structure chosen).
