Cheapest new Mini

Mini Australia has unveiled the details of their new entry level hatch, the Mini One. At $24,500, it’s the cheapest Mini since the brand was relaunched here in 2002 under BMW’s banner.

The new entry level model has the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine found in the new Mini Cooper Hatch, which delivers 75kW and 180Nm. Those aren’t exactly drag strip numbers: the Mini One will do 0-100km/h in 9.9 seconds (or 10.2 seconds for the auto.) On the other hand, fuel economy is a floor-level 4.9L/100km (5.0L/100 km for the auto).

The Mini One Hatch picks up Bluetooth and USB, keyless ignition with auto start-stop, and Dynamic Stability Control as standard features.
