MINI One First five door version was officially introduced by the British manufacturer on the European market, hoping that it will appeal to younger customers who do not have enough money for a MINI Cooper or a Cooper 5 five-door.
Starting March 2015 the new MINI One First 5 door is powered by a completely newly conceived engine featuring TwinPower Turbo Technology.
Its 1.2 3-cylinder unit delivers 75 hp and a maximum torque of 150 Newton metres which goes on stream at 1,400 rpm, accelerating the MINI One First 5 door from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 13.4 seconds.
Power transmission to the front wheels is taken care of by a newly developed 6-speed manual transmission, helping the car achieve an average fuel consumption of 5.2 litres per 100 kilometres (45 mpg).
The CO2 emission level of the new MINI One First 5 door is 121 grams per kilometre.
