The world of MINI is enriched by a MINI One First 5 door model with a completely newly developed entry-level engine! Production is set to start on March this year.

Power arrives from a 1.2-liter TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine with variable camshaft control on the intake and exhaust side (double VANOS). It is capable of generating 75 HP (55 kW) and a peak torque of 150 Nm (111 lb-ft) at 1,400 rpm which is enough for the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 13.4 seconds.

The power unit is matched to a newly developed 6-speed manual transmission that delivers reduced weight, better efficiency rates and ultimate shift comfort. The average fuel consumption of the MINI One First 5 door is 5.2 liter per 100 km while CO2 emission level is that of 121 gr/km.

Since MINI is all about practicality and convenience, the feeling of a good driving experience is achieved thanks to the extra doors and the extended by 72 mm wheelbase too. The three seats at the rear and the huge luggage compatibility is a combination which also guarantees comfort while traveling.

Finally, because of the addition of the recently-created 1.2-liter unit, the engine portfolio of MINI is expanded to four petrol and three diesel engines which cover an output range of 75 HP (55 kW) to 192 HP (141 kW).
