New MINI hatch has been on the market for a while now and from this summer the engine line-up will be expanded with two new units.

Average fuel consumption is 68.9-70.6 mpg with CO2 emissions of 104-110 g/km.

The new MINI One First also combines TwinPower Turbo Technology, but in this case in a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine, delivering 74bhp and a maximum torque of 150 Newton metres.
