MINI Cooper Coupe and MINI Cooper Roadster

MINI Cooper Coupé
MINI Australia today announced two new entry engine variants for its two-seater range, the MINI Cooper Coupe and MINI Cooper Roadster, which arrive in Australia in November. Priced from $34,900 for the Coupe and $37,500 for the Roadster, the new Cooper engine variants reduce the entry price-point to the range by more than $8000.

MINI Australia General Manager, Kai Bruesewitz said the new Cooper variants will be in hot demand.

“The MINI Cooper engine is extremely popular in other body styles in the MINI range offering punchy performance and frugal economy at a great price,” he said.

“With the addition of this engine variant, the striking new MINI Coupe and Roadster are now even more attractive and more attainable to the young and the young at heart,” said Mr Bruesewitz.

Powered by a naturally aspirated 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine boasting a fully variable valve control system, the powerplant for both of these models generates 90 kW at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 160 Newton metres at 4,250 rpm.

This propels the MINI Cooper Coupe from standstill to 100 km/h in just 9 seconds, with an average fuel consumption of 5.8 l/100 km’s and emissions of 136 grams of CO2 per km. The MINI Cooper Roadster covers the sprint in 9.2 seconds to 100 km/h whilst burning 6.1 l/100 km/s and emitting 142 grams of CO2 per km.

Both models are equipped as standard with a 6–speed manual transmission.

Despite the low price point, the standard specification for both of these new models remains high with features such as 16” 6-Star twin spoke alloy wheels, sport seats, cruise control, automatic climate control, Bluetooth hands free kit with USB audio interface and rain sensor with automatic headlight control.
