Well, Are They Coming Here Or Not?

WorldCarFans reports that MINI has introduced the new MINI Cooper SD and Cooper One First in the United Kingdom. No word on whether either model will hit U. S. shores.  Here, as stated in the article, are the pertinent stats on the vehicles:
The Cooper SD is the "most powerful diesel variant" as it features a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 170 PS (125 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds - 7.2 seconds with the optional six-speed Steptronic transmission - and average 4.0-4.1 L/100km (57.3-58.8 mpg US / 68.9-70.6 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 104-110 g/km.

If that's too fast and fuel efficient, the One First has a 1.2-liter TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder diesel engine that produces 75 PS (55 kW) and 150 Nm (110 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the hatchback to run from 0-100 km/h in 12.8 seconds and average 5.0-5.2 L/100km (45.2-47 mpg US / 54.3-56.4 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 117-122 g/km.
