> The more powerful versions in the range get a new exhaust filtration technology to conform to the Euro 6d-TEMP emission regulations
> Most importantly, none of the alterations to the 2.0-litre, twin-turbocharged motor have changed the car’s performance
The company explained that the six-speed manual gearbox version (hatchback/convertible) now produces between 157g/km - 162g/km of CO2 depending on the spec. However, the optional eight-speed automatic gearbox brings the emission levels further down to up to 140g/km. Mini claims that despite the presence of the new particulate filter in the exhaust system, it generates a distinctively sporty sound while still ensuring the required exhaust emissions.
In terms of equipment, customers now get the 17-inch JCW light alloy wheels, piano-black trim on both the interiors and exteriors, and the JCW sports bucket seats as standard. Besides that, some of the snazzy additions to this range of options include the telephony option with wireless charging and the MINI logo projection on the driver’s side.
