What is MINI TwinPower diesel?

Since 1994, BMW has owned the MINI name and has helped to progress the brand to where it is today.

This has meant that BMW parts and equipment have become an integral part of the MINI make-up and with the latest set of BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engines, the MINI One D, Cooper D and Cooper SD have all been fitted with these efficient and well-built power units.

For both the One D and Cooper D, BMW has provided its 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo diesel engine, which is more efficient than the previous series and has been tuned for each model to provide the right output.

The One D uses an 95hp version of the 1.5-litre, which helps this MINI achieve between 89 and 92 g/km CO2, putting it in the A band for emissions, and is capable of 83.1 mpg.

The Cooper D uses the same 1.5-litre diesel, but it has been upgraded to produce 116hp, which only slightly compromises the fuel usage and emissions statistics. Still within the A band, it produces between 92 and 95 g/km CO2 and still has a very respectable fuel usage of 80.7 mpg.

For the Cooper SD, one of the sportiest in the MINI Hatch range, has a 2-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 170hp and launches the Cooper SD to 60 in 7.3 seconds. You would expect a large offset in fuel usage and emissions, but thanks to these efficient BMW units, you can expect between 106 and 109 g/km CO2 and 70.6mpg, both still very efficient and low on fuel usage.

With the help of BMW’s expertise in engine technology, MINIs have become incredibly efficient and can only improve as BMW’s own knowledge in the area continues to develop.
