Another great review as you would expect. But this line really caught my eye.
Even the turbocharged Cooper S I tested scored 29 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. If U.S. consumers show interest, Mini could import the even more efficient versions it sells in Europe that use a smaller gasoline engine, or run on diesel.
There has been much talk already about the diesel coming to the US, but the engine emissions aren’t clean enough for California and 8 other states at this time. Maybe MSNBC knows something we don’t.[ Looks can be deceiving in new MINI Cooper ] MSNBC.com
