BMW boosted the power of the 2011 MINI Cooper but it could still boast a fuel economy rating of 29 mpg (9.74 liters per 100 km) city and 37 mpg (7.63 liters per 100 km) highway mileage. The MINI Cooper's naturally aspirated 1.6-liter four cylinder engine has an output of 121hp and 114 lb-ft (154 Nm) of torque.
For instance, the MINI Cooper S has a fuel economy rating of 34 mpg (8.3 liters per 100 km) on the highway.
That is using an imperial gallon for the conversion, which is 20 percent larger than a U.S gallon. The fuel economy expressed in l/100 km is actually quite a bit better than that - based on the rating of 35 hwy mpg for the Mini S, the l/100 km is only 6.7 highway - pretty impressive!
