The MINI German subsidiary of BMW has officially announced the prices for the 2014 MINI Cooper in Australia, with the base model coming 5,000 AUD cheaper.
The third-generation MINI Cooper in Australia starts from 26,650 AUD, for the version being equipped with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol engine, developing 100 kW and 220 Nm of torque.
The new entry-level enhances 10 kW and 60 Nm of torque more than the base entry-level, as it is equipped with a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, with a greater fuel-efficiency of 4.7l/100 km.
The 2014 MINI Cooper also comes with a diesel engine, with prices to start from 31,800 AUD for the Cooper D, which develops 85 kW and 270 Nm of torque. The D version has a fuel consumption of 3,7l/100 km.
The other diesel version, the Cooper S is more expensive than the D version, costing 36,950 AUD. This one is easy to distinguish since it bears a more aggressive rear bumper, twin central tailpipes, a bonnet scoop or a honeycomb radiator grille.
Under the hood, the MINI Copper S sports a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, developing 141 kW and 280 Nm of torque.
