Expected engines include a 1.2 TFSI producing 63kW (86PS) and 160Nm, a 1.4 TFSI producing 90kW (122PS) and 200Nm, and a 1.6 TDI worth 77kW (105PS) and 250Nm. Of course the MINI has performance derivatives which need to be targeted as well. So an S1 will be created with about 132kW (180PS) being driven by a 7-speed S-Tronic transmission. The S1 would be launched in February 2011.
Following that an A1 Sportback would come to market and thereafter soft-top cabriolet versions in 2012. Depending on A1 market sales, a peppery RS 1 could be introduced.
