The name change from “One Diesel” to “Cooper Diesel” alone should give you a hint at how MINI intends this new car to up the diesel performance ante. The newly redesigned Car Magazine has the latest on what to expect:

>The Mini Cooper diesel will run the 1.6-litre HDi four, which features in Peugeot-Citroen and Ford cars. Peak power is 110bhp, with 180lb ft of torque on tap. Those outputs shame the outgoing Mini One D, whose 1.4-litre Toyota engine yielded 74bhp and 140lb ft.
