only two weeks Ago we published the test of the new MINI Countryman. We tried it in his diesel version less powerful to date, the MINI Countryman Cooper D, and we stated that the british brand does not take too much to incorporate new versions of access with lower power, both in diesel as in gasoline; and as we know it.
The MINI Countryman second generation will have new versions under the denomination “One”, as it is usually referred to as variants of access in all its models. This finish is attached to a mechanical 1,500 cc both in petrol as well as diesel. But they will not be the only developments in the crossover MINI.
New engines of access to the finished One in the MINI Countryman
The level of finish most accessible of the MINI Countryman will have a petrol engine and another diesel. Both will be three-cylinder, with direct fuel injection and supercharging by turbo. The version of gas develops a maximum power of 102 CV and a torque of 180 Nm which is available between 1,250 and 3,800 rpm. It will be available both with manual gearbox or automatic, both transmissions are six relations. Your fuel consumption approved is 5.5 l/100 km
variant diesel account with variable geometry turbo and direct injection by rail common. Declares a maximum power 116 CV coupled to a torque of 270 Nm available between 1,750 and to 2,250 rpm. Its average consumption approved is 4.1 l/100 km
In this way, the MINI Countryman you will be able to associate, from July, three petrol engines and three diesel. In the same way, the range of Cooper, Cooper D, Cooper S and Cooper SD will be offered both with front-wheel-drive as the system of all-wheel drive ALL4.
Redesign of indicators for the driving position
The british brand also update, from July of 2017, the dashboard of the MINI Countryman. We have already commented in our test that the visibility itself could be improved. The numbers and letters into night design will appear in white color, something that will also apply to the HeadUp Display. The fuel gauge will also be updated with a more care and greater precision.
on the other hand, currently the drive modes is selected by moving a rotary control knob which is located at the base of the bellows of the gear lever. This will also change going on, from July, to a more button style under the controls of the air conditioning.
