Official: MINI Cooper SD and Countryman SD

Report

It wasn't too long ago when Mini unveiled the new addition to the Mini family. Turns out that 2011 is going to bring in another wave of fun to drive cars such as the Mini Cooper SD and Countryman SD. The diesel variants are set to launch into the Mini line-up in spring 2011, and will sport a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel that can produce 143-horsepower. The new diesel is said to be powerful, so much so that its pulling power remains on tap even under heavy loads.

This same engine will also be found in the new Mini Countryman SD. The new SD range will also be fitted standard with an extensive range of MINIMALIST technology. In addition to the engine's efficiency, the SD line will feature new technologies such as Brake Energy Regeneration, Auto Start-Stop functionality, and Shift Point Display. Adding to the sporting credentials, Mini claims that the Cooper SD will have a 0 to 60 mph time of 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 134 mph.
