Article: 2007 MINI Cooper S
The new Mini looks very much the same with the old Mini but it’s better and faster. It is exactly how the engineers at BMW, Mini’s parent company, planned it. The new version is bigger in every way, but the proportions and deep-fried retro styling cues haven’t changed to preserve the good things about the Mini.
The new Mini is definitely larger then the old one with its exterior length goes up by nearly three inches. The use of aluminum for the engine construction and the rear suspension gives the ‘07 Mini Cooper a weight similar to the ‘06 model. Its driving power comes from a 1.6-liter, aluminum-block four-cylinder that generates a 172-horsepower with direct injection and a the newly designed twin-scroll turbocharger that gives 11.6 pounds of max boost.
