Geneva Motor Show 2014: MINI One shown for the first time

Published 05 March 2014

The entry-level MINI One and One D made their world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new cars feature less chrome and smaller wheels. Prices are expected to start ar around £14,000 for the petrol powered One.

The cheaper models feature lower levels of standard equipment to complement the more basic looking exterior, but as with the outgoing MINI One, expect it to be highly configurable, with a wide range of equipment packs also available.

The petrol MINI One is powered by a 1.2-litre version of the new TwinPower three-cylinder engine with 100PS. Despite being the entry-level MINI, performance looks relatively swift, with a 0-62mph time of 9.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 121mph. Sadly, CO2 emissions don't quite dip below the 100g/km mark, coming in at 108–109g/km for the six-speed manual version.

The MINI One D retains the 1.5-litre engine of the Cooper D but with power reduced to 97PS. Acceleration to 62mph comes in at 11.0 seconds, while CO2 emissions are 89–92g/km.

The MINI hatch goes on sale in the UK later this month, but expect the One and One D to follow in the autumn. There is no official word on prices yet, but the petrol One is likely to start at around £14,000, with the diesel £1000 more.

Always beneficial to check facts as they'll both be here well before the Autumn
