Mini Roadster 2012: The other funny to bibitte
Quite recently, I was describing the new Mini Coupe as funny to bibitte and now looks funny to the other bibitte Mini, but this time in roadster version.
The very friendly Mini Cup has just made its appearance on the roads of Quebec and I even led last week.
But voila looks said series of seductive version of roadster, the member of this great family 6th evolving.
This is really against the grain of the engineers see the brand go for the solution of a retractable soft top manually. A lightweight roof can be raised with one hand.
Between these two poles of security, you can place a wind deflector available in supplement. Behind the bucket seats, there is a small door which gives access to the trunk which has a loading space up to 240 liters.
At Mini is to provide a pleasant car to drive, the lightest possible and that fuel consumption will be minimal. Add to this the opportunity to offer this small car at a very realistic price.
Gasoline engines and diesel
On the European markets, the Mini Roadster will inherit the petrol and diesel engines already available on other models in the range, including the powerful John Cooper Works versions.
For us, the Mini Roadster should be powered by the same engine used by the new Mini Coupe, that is to say:
Mini Cooper Coupe: 4L 1.6-liter 122 hp.
Mini Cooper S Coupe: 1.6-liter turbo 4L 184 hp.
Mini John Cooper Works Coupe: 4L 1.6L turbo 211 hp.
A future rival for the Mazda MX-5
Offering a car with the deployment of its soft top is done manually, the Mini Roadster and future become a serious rival to the immortal Mazda MX-5 which is already at 22 years of valuable and dedicated service. The Japanese girl offers a choice of a soft top that unfolds manually or a retractable hardtop.
The Mazda MX-5 2012 is powered by two four-cylinder engines of 2.0 liters of an output of 158 and 167 horsepower.
The theatrical release of the Mini Roadster is scheduled for February 2012.
