Our friends at Bigblogg have scooped the first technical info of the upcoming BMW diesel that will power the Cooper S D. While we’ve reported (along with a few other outlets) that the engine was coming, this is the first confirmed power figure.
As previously reported engine is based heavily on the 2.0 turbocharged BMW diesel found in the 1 and 3 series. Bigblogg is reporting that the car will have 143PS or 141 hp. But what about pulling power? How about
200 221 ft lbs of torque? Again that’s what Bigblogg is reporting.
We expect the car to be released next spring in Euro markets. It will not come to the US due to all the same reasons we’ve reported over the past several years.
