    2007 Mini EPA Mileage Released: 40 mpg hwy

    http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/061211/nym035.html?.v=78

    WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- In light of increasing fuel prices, many manufacturers are striving to produce vehicles with an average fuel economy of 30 miles per gallon. The fact that the all-new 2007 MINI Cooper achieves 40 miles per gallon according to the latest EPA testing should be welcomed by car buyers across the US. And that the MINI Cooper delivers this miserly fuel economy with no effect on its performance and driving capabilities is an added advantage.

    On average the new generation 2007 MINI hardtops realize an increase of 4 miles per gallon over their predecessors. The 2007 MINI Cooper with a 6-speed manual transmission achieves a fuel economy of 32/40 City/Highway with a combined average of 35 MPG. The same car with an automatic transmission offers preliminary values of 30/37 City/Highway MPG with a combined average of 33 MPG.

    For the turbocharged 2007 MINI Cooper S with a 6-speed manual transmission the following EPA fuel economy values are 29/36 City/Highway with a combined MPG of 32 MPG. And for the MINI Cooper S with the 6-speed performance automatic transmission the preliminary values are 27/34 City/Highway with a combined average of 30 MPG.
    The Chrysler-designed Brazilian-built lump was always a weak point in the current iteration.

    I am a big fan of relatively small turbocharged engines. Good power and economy in a pretty straight forward package. Imagine a Cobalt with a turbo 1.6 liter making 175HP. Great mileage and better performance than the current 2.2 and 2.4 liter engines.

    Or you can think of the Opel Corsca/Astra. Both are getting the 1.6 Turbo.

    The Mini is truely and amazing car. I drove a Cooper S and it was so fun. You can turn at any speed and it stays planted and it turns quick. No body roll or anything. I would like one for a summer car.
