MINI Cooper SD three-door revealed

The MINI Cooper SD three-door combines a hot hatch worrying 168bhp with 69mpg running costs

Following its debut in the five-door MINI hatch, the new Cooper SD model has been made available in the three-door, too. The 2.0-litre diesel engine produces 168bhp and returns 68.9mpg.

Available from July, the Cooper SD becomes the second quickest in the line-up after the S. It can sprint from 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds with the six-speed manual or 7.2 with the auto. Those times are half-a-second down on the Cooper S.

Where the SD really shines, though, is on fuel economy. The combined figure of 68.9mpg isn’t too far off the Cooper D’s 74.0mpg and it’s a lot lower than the 49.0mpg that the Cooper S is capable of. The 107g/km CO2 emissions will ensure there’s no road tax to pay for the first year, either.

As with the Cooper S, the SD gets more aggressive styling, featuring S badges in the grille and an SD badge on the bootlid. It’s got a bonnet intake and a pair of exhausts at the rear, too.

The MINI Cooper SD three-door starts from £19,450, with the Cooper S costing from £18,655.

Just how many reviews can be written about a single (un)original design?

OOH, AHH. It looks EXACTLY the same as every other effing Mini. "more aggressive styling" Lol.

Really is a very nice car, just got better. Love this new Mini.

ughly and expensive

This would be insanely fun. 170bhp diesel in a Mini!? Crazy torque.
