BMW Mini has announced that from this August all Mini models will bear fresh design features both inside and out. There will also be two brand new diesel engines that achieve Co2 emissions of just 99g/km. The first Mini Convertible powered by a diesel engine will also make its debut.
The refreshed and revised Mini range will be available in Mini showrooms from September. Jochen Goller, Director of Mini UK said "the pace at which MINI is bringing new technology to the market is breathtaking, the current generation of Mini Hatch, Clubman and Convertible are all quite recent cars and were state of the art when they were launched. With the refreshment of Mini design and the extraordinarily economical new diesel engines Mini has moved the game forward even further."
In addition to the high efficiency of the new diesel engine, the new diesel powered BMW Minis employ fuel-saving and emission-lowering technology including Brake Energy Regeneration, Auto Start-Stop, Gearshift Indicator, Electromechanical Power Steering and demand-controlled auxiliary units such as the alternator. All of these technologies and the standard six-speed manual gearbox play a role as it ekes the most out of every drop of fuel while also minimising the tailpipe emissions. BMW Mini will go digital across the range together with Mini Connected which is a whole new world of connectivity to Mini owners.
