Mini launches new entry level model in U.K

Mini First fq

A new MINI is rolling out in the U.K., and it is designed to be the brand’s most affordable model. Named the “MINI First,” the two-door is only available in hatchback form. The standard powerplant is a 1.4-liter, 75 horsepower four-cylinder petrol unit mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. It sports a claimed 0-100 kph time of 13.2 seconds so it’s no pocket rocket, but it returns impressive fuel economy figures sipping away at just 4.4l/100km.

Starting at £10,950 ($27,560 NZ), the First isn’t exactly entry-level when it comes to new technology. Standard features are based around measly fuel consumption and include auto start-stop, regenerative braking, variable valve timing, and a shift point indicator.
