The new 2014 Mini One 0

mini_one__2_The brand new MINI One has been showcased. The entry level vehicle was shown off at the 2014 Geneva show.

The car will come with lower powered three cylinder engines. The MINI one Diesel was also shown off at the Geneva Motor Show. These are seen as the more ‘affordable’ MINI’s. That will mean lower level features within the car. The new MINI One has smaller wheels, a less complex air intake system and a differently designed type of roof. The chrome rimmed floating grill as well as blacked out pillars remain on the vehicle for those who don’t like too much change.

The Mini One has a 1.2 litre three cylinder engine which is able to produce a fantastic 102 BHP along with 180Nm of torque. The car is 0.3 litres smaller in capacity when compared to the Cooper. However it still receives the same technology which includes a TwinPower turbo, variable valve timing, direct-injection and variable cam timing.

The vehicle is highly economical too, with emissions of 61.4 MPG and 108g/km with the six speed manual version. The automatic version is able to achieve 58.9mpg as well as 112g/km of C02 emissions. The 0 – 62 MPH has been stated as 9.9 seconds with the vehicle’s top speed being 121 MPH. The MINI One now has a range of smooth engines and also has a brilliant handling. The car looks great and also has low running costs.

The future of the MINI brand promises a better driving experience with added fun and of course more efficiency in their cars. This is well demonstrated within the MINI Clubman Concept which is also on display at the Geneva Motor Show.

The MINI Connected program is also on display at the Geneva Motor Show. This is technology which the company has developed to focus on areas of safety and driver assistance, with MINI accessory and lifestyle products.

The MINI One will be on the market this Autumn for approximately £14,000 for the petrol version of the car. The diesel version will cost around £15,000.
