Consumer Reports News: June 21, 2011 04:18 PM

BMW has unveiled the new Mini Coupe with pricing starting at $22,000, including destination charges. The S Coupe will start at $25,300 and the John Cooper Works model is priced at $31,900.

The Coupe will be offered with three different engines—a 1.6-liter four-cylinder producing 121-hp, a turbocharged 1.6-liter producing 181-hp, and a John Cooper Works version producing 208-hp from its turbocharged four cylinder. All engines will come with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy estimates are not yet available.

Mini claims the base Coupe will accelerate 0-60 mph in 8.3 seconds; the S Coupe is expected to clock in at 6.5 and 6.1 seconds for the John Cooper Works edition.

Notable optional equipment includes xenon headlights, adaptive headlights, automatic climate control, and automatically dimming rear-view mirror and electric exterior mirrors. Entertainment options include Bluetooth, USB audio interface, and connectivity functions including web radio, Google search and Send to Car services, RSS news feeds, and in-car use of Facebook and Twitter.

The Coupe will officially debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and it will go on sale in the United States shortly after.
