The new MINI First will be MINI’s most attractively-priced model on sale in Ireland. Starting with a recommended retail price of €19,450 the MINI First offers customers the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a unique small premium car at an unbeatable price.
Available only in Hatch form, the MINI First features the 1.4-litre petrol engine currently found in the MINI One, but with a power output of 75 bhp. BMW Ireland say that this frugal engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard and great go-kart handling is ensured by the trademark sophisticated chassis of all MINIs. A multi-link rear axle and independent front and rear suspension systems combine with Dynamic Stability Control to put a smile on the driver’s face every time they get behind the wheel.
Interestingly, minimalism technologies including Auto Start-Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration, Variable Valve Technology, and Shift Point Display are all included in the standard package, meaning owners will be able to take full advantage of the MINI First’s lower running costs.
