New Mini Coming!

Mini has announced the third generation Cooper to be available in March. Of course, I already have one on order.

Specs are impressive! Cooper gets 52 mpg, Cooper S gets 41 mpg and Cooper D is 67 mpg! These figures are from a UK site. For comparison, my Clubman gets around 40 mpg overall and my first generation MCS (the one with a supercharger) gets 27 mpg.

I posted a series of pictures showing installation of a Roadmaster baseplate on my 2008 Clubman, look for pictures of making my new Mini towable in the spring.

And BTW, I have my 2008 Clubman listed for sale in the classifieds here.

I believe the Brits use the imperial Gallon which is slightly bigger than a US gallon which of course you'd squeeze in more miles. However, if they were using US gallons then I am impressed.

Actual mpg posted on Mini.com (UK) is:

4.5 liters/100 kilometers for Cooper
3.5 l/100 km for Cooper D (probably not going to be available in the US)
5.7 l/100 km for the Cooper S

I did the conversions to US gallons, so Imperial gallons didn't enter into the equation.
