Cooper S Mpg

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

can anybody confirm what real world MPG they are getting from the new turbocharged cooper s. I am sure I recall the original supercharged version as being a tad thirsty for a 1.6 around the 30mpg mark iirc. The current figures for the new turbo version suggest 45mpg as a composite figure. Is this correct as in the current climate of rocketing fuel costs it could well turn out to be a relatively cheap hot hatch to run.

Any comments regarding this and the new version in general would be welcome. I have been a passenger briefly in an old version but have never driven one. I do 25000 miles a year, current car being a mkV GTi and am slightly worried that it may be a compromise to go for this car. I am also considering a 123d coupe, different car, different price league but i am keeping my options open.

cheers in advance +++

I'm getting mid 30's at the moment, but expect that to improve as the car runs in (only about 2,000 miles on it currently). The new one is certainly a massive improvement in efficientcy compared to the old supercharged one (CO2 drops from over 200 to 149!!)

Great fun car, but not going to be as smooth as your Golf I wouldn't have thought.

Hi,

I have a 2007 cooper s (turbo charged). I average 34 miles to the gallon if I keep my foot out of it (hard to do!). Great car, love it, handles like a dream, performs up the kazoo! Best car I have owned since long ago, my 1969 Plymouth Barracuda S 340 six-pack (back when Detroit could make cars).

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I could not resist it.

Which one did you buy?

Cooper S in a different price league than a 123d (bm troubleyou, I assume)? How much is the van look alike with the tractor engine in the UK? The MINI is in a different class league too - the bm is just another over-rated bm.

I do 17 miles on motorway twice a day and have been getting 41mpg as long as I don't race it. i.e do a steady 60/65 where possible.

But I didn't buy it for its fuel economy!
