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.

The Cooper SD uses a 168bhp 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with maximum torque of 360 Newton metres at 1500 rpm.
0-62 mph comes in 7.3 seconds with the manual and in 7.2 seconds with the optional 6-speed Steptronic transmission.
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.
0-62mph comes in 12.8 seconds and the average fuel economy is 54.3-56.4 mpg with CO2 emissions of 117-122 g/km.
