Mini Australia has announced pricing details of a new entry-level variant to the Mini range, the all new Mini One Hatch.

According to Kai Bruesewitz, general manager for Mini Australia, the new Mini One Hatch continues the trend set by the new Mini Hatch of offering more for less.

“The new Mini One Hatch embodies the same technical and quality advancements demonstrated in the rest of the new Mini Hatch range, and when compared to the previous entry level model, offers customers greater performance, improved comfort and a lot more value for money,” Bruesewitz said.

The new Mini One Hatch is powered by a 1.2 litre version of the three-cylinder engine currently found in the new Mini Cooper Hatch and delivers 75 kW and 180 Nm of torque. This takes the Mini One Hatch to 100 km/h from standstill in some 9.9 seconds (automatic: 10.2 seconds). Fuel consumption rating is 4.9 l/100 km’s (automatic: 5.0 l/100 km’s).

The newest entry level model has grown in every way over the predecessor, with increased dimensions for the chassis, body and interior space.

This increase in size is instantly felt on the inside. Greater occupant comfort is guaranteed, thanks to increased shoulder room and foot space in the front seating area and a roomier rear-seat arrangement. Carrying capacity is enhanced with the luggage compartment increased to 211 litres – an increase of 51 litres over the predecessor.

Another aspect that has increased over the previous model is the list of standard equipment. The Mini One Hatch not only includes the key features of the old Mini Ray such as Bluetooth and USB interface but also offers automatic start/stop with keyless go, servotronic power steering, Dynamic Stability Control including Dynamic Traction Control and Electronic Differential Lock as well as colour line in carbon black.

“The improved performance, higher levels of sophistication and equipment levels as well as the attractive price will ensure the exciting Mini brand is on the shopping list of more Aussies customers”, said Brueszewitz.
