Comments

Control of NOx is generally good, both in the laboratory tests and on the road. The car has a gasoline particulate filter and particulate number is not excessive in any of the tests. However, emissions of ammonia, NH3, a pollutant that is unregulated by legislation, are high and points are lost in the laboratory tests leading to an index of 4.2 in this part of the assessment.

Given the car's low weight, energy efficiency is not as good as might be expected, with an average fuel consumption of 7.0 l/100 km.

Comments

The CO2 value recorded in the cold and warm tests are extremely close to the declared value of 145 g/km. In the more challenging tests, emissions of CO2 are elevated and, in these tests, points are scored only for the good control of N2O and CH4 that the car demonstrates.

Our verdict

The MINI, manufactured by BMW since 2001 and available in many guises, is tested here in its latest form and with the 3 cylinder turbocharged 1.5 litre petrol engine. The car has a gasoline particulate filter (GPF) and a three-way catalyst and, on the whole, these work well to curb pollutant emissions. NOx is especially well controlled in all tests and the GPF helps to keep particulate number down. Ammonia, NH3, is the weak point and in the high-load highway test emissions of this unregulated greenhouse gas are high enough to negate the positive scores gained for the good control of other pollutants. Energy efficiency is unexceptional. N2O and CH4 are well controlled but emissions of CO2 result in modest scores in the tests. Overall, the car's indexes are consistent in all three areas of assessment and lead to a 2½ star rating.
