BMW's subsidiary firm, Mini, unveiled their 2014 line-up. And the Hardtop is the only machine which got update. Of course, the next gen Mini Cooper Hardtop comes with some good number of updates, which are certainly needed at this present automobile industry.
Design is the prime factory why Mini is still a super hit in the industry. But, we can't sell design alone at all times. It certainly needed added features and reliability along with it.
The Mini is available in two engine options- a 1.5-liter three-cylinder which generates a peak 134 horsepower and a peak 162 pound-feet of torque (169 pound-feet with overboost function), and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder which is capable to deliver 189 horsepower and 206 pound-feet of torque (221 pound-feet with overboost). Both engines are offered in Six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The base variant easily clocks from 0 to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds (7.3 with the automatic) and has a top speed of 130 mph. While, the Cooper S with 2.0 liter heart goes 0-60 in just 6.4 seconds (6.3 with the auto) and clocks a top speed of 146 mph.
“On the inside is where you see the revolutionary aspect. You could say the exterior is evolutionary. But it is more contemporary, more modern,” said Jim McDowell, vice president, Mini of the Americas.
The only new stuff in the 2014 line-up of Mini.
