MINIUSA's Official Response To EPA Lower Mileage Figures

MINIUSA has issued this press release, carried by MotoringFile, in response to the EPA's required lowering of advertised miles per gallon figures for four MINI models:
Official statement: MINI is adjusting the stated fuel economy ratings for the 2014 MINI Hardtop. The restated ratings will be one MPG lower in the combined cycle for four models including the MINI Cooper Hardtop Manual and Automatic, and the MINI Cooper S Hardtop Manual and Automatic.

This adjustment was made as the result of retesting models following notification by the EPA that road load testing for one model had delivered different results. Engineers worked closely with the EPA to incorporate these findings into MINI’s computer simulation testing.

While this necessitates change, the 2014 MINI Hardtop still delivers outstanding fuel efficiency. We have sent new labels for 2014 models in stock to our dealers.
