Mini modifications this autumn

June 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

The Mini gets a minor makeover this autumn: though the exterior styling tweaks are subtle, amounting to a revised bonnet, a bit of extra chrome and LED taillights, and the interior is only mildly facelifted, there’s a new diesel engine on offer.

The former Peugeot-Citroen 1.6 is replaced by BMW’s own unit as in the 116d; this will be offered in 89bhp and 110bhp forms for the Mini One D and Cooper D respectively. It returns 72.4mpg and emits 99g/km, bringing the Mini hatchback into the tax-free zone, though its emissions are a little higher in the Clubman and Convertible (103g/km and 104g/km). Sales start mid-September.
