MINI Chases Fuel Efficiency With The New Cooper SD

MINI is presented another new engine variant for its current model range at the International Geneva Motor Show 2011. The latest power unit showcases a new take on the brand’s traditional interplay of driving fun and efficiency. Developed for the MINI Cooper SD, MINI Cooper SD Clubman, MINI Cooper SD Convertible and MINI Cooper SD Countryman, the 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine develops 105 kW/143 hp and peak torque of 305 Newton metres (225 lb-ft).
The increased pulling power of the most brawny of the now three-strong MINI diesel engine line-up enables the MINI Cooper SD to cover the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.1 seconds. The new model variant also continues in the impressively frugal vein of its stablemates with fuel consumption of 4.3 litres per 100 kilometres (65.7 mpg imp) in the EU test cycle, accompanied by CO2 emissions of 114 grams per kilometre.

The engine also expresses its sporting credentials in the form of a resoundingly sonorous soundtrack when the driver pushes on into higher rev bands. In addition, the MINI Cooper SD can be identified by a selection of eye-catching design features: the large air intake, the air scoop on the bonnet, twin tailpipes positioned in the centre of the rear apron and a roof spoiler strike stylistic parallels with the most powerful petrol variant in the range, the MINI Cooper S.
