In the history of automobiles, vehicles with a four-cylinder engine under their hoods were considered weak by many, so it’s hard to believe that a three-cylinder engine is so successful. The MINI brand, however, developed a three-cylinder brand that has earned both the respect of drivers and critics alike. This is a considerable development considering how cost-conscious and environmentally-friendly many car owners are now. The 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine is in the upgraded and new 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop. It was named to this year’s Ward’s 10 Best and that makes our Orlando MINI dealership especially proud of the large inventory of MINI Cooper vehicles we offer our customers.
This engine may be small, but it offers punch and the fuel economy you want without sacrificing performance. Base models of the 2015 MINI Cooper come equipped with a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine that achieves 134 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. That means with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, you can expect an estimated 30 MPG in the city and 42 MPG on the highway. If you choose to upgrade to the 6-speed automatic transmission, you can expect an estimated 29 MPG city and 41 MPG highway. The 2015 MINI Cooper also comes equipped with the latest technology so you can always stay connected while on the road!
