MINI One makes its debut

THE entry-level to the all-new MINI brand - the MINI One - made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The MINI will go on sale in the UK on July 7 with two versions - the 1.6-litre 90bhp MINI One and the MINI Cooper powered by the same 1.6-litre 16v engine but tuned to 115bhp.

This gives the Cooper a top speed of 125mph and a 0-62 mph time of 9.2 seconds. The MINI One has a 0-62mph time of 10.9 seconds and a top speed of 115mph. Early next year the 1.6-litre 163bhp MINI Cooper S will enter showrooms.

Standard specification on all models includes twin front airbags and side airbags, ABS brakes, remote central locking, a six-speaker sound system and electric windows. Prices have yet to be announced but the range is expected to start at about £10,000.
