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.
