>The redesigned front grille and bumper provide the necessary airflow to cool the MINI’s new engines. Developed with Peugeot, the 1.6-litre petrol units will be used in the One, Cooper and Cooper S, but there won’t be a supercharger in sight.
>Instead, the hot hatch variant is turbocharged to produce more than 200bhp, fed to the front wheels using an enhanced traction control system.
