n Portugal and Greece, the MINI One is powered by a 1.4 litre version of the Tritec engine but all other petrol powered MINIs use the 1.6 litre version.Since 2004, a soft-top convertible option has been available across the entire range.
There are numerous styling and badging differences between the models, perhaps the most obvious being that the Cooper S has a distinctive scoop cut into the bonnet. The Cooper S also has twin Exhausts which exit under the center of the rear valance. The (non-S) Cooper has more chrome parts than the MINI One and has a single Exhaust. The MINI One D has no visible Exhaust pipes at all.
In some markets, such as Australia and the US, only the MINI Cooper and Cooper S are sold because the MINI One's engine was considered to deliver insufficient power to run an air conditioner — a necessary feature in those climates. Almost fifty percent of all MINIs sold in Australia and about seventy percent of those sold in the US are the top-of-the-range Cooper S model.
The names Cooper and Cooper S echo the names used for the sportier version of the classic Mini which in turn come from the involvement of John Cooper and the Cooper Car Company. The Cooper heritage is further emphasised with the John Cooper Works (JCW) range of tuning options that are available with the MINI. John Cooper also created a one-off racing model of the MINI One named the MINI One S Works. This car features many extras which help to improve performance, such as a racing Exhaust and air filter as well as uprated suspension. The car also has one-of-a-kind 17-inch racing wheels
From November 2006, the hatchback MINI range has been replaced by an all-new MINI, consisting of MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S models, powered by a new 1.6 litre engine co-developed by BMW and PSA Peugeot-Citroën. The "old" MINI Convertible continues to be sold alongside the new hatchback range. The Mk II MINI One will be on sale in April 2007 with Mk II Convertibles in the 2009 model year. The MINI One has a 1.4 litre engine derived from the same engine in the MINI Cooper and Peugeot 207.

BMW CS Concept at Auto Shanghai 2007
The BMW CS Concept was a concept car produced by BMW in 2007. It is a
fastback sedan that features many new innovations for BMW, such as door
handles that only come out when sensors detect motion. Unconfirmed rumors
suggest this concept may see production in the form of the new BMW 8
Series. Unlike the previous 8 Series, which was a coupe, the CS would be a
four-door with coupe styling, similar to the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. With
dimensions slightly bigger than the E65 7-series, its competition is
expected to be slightly more upmarket than the previous 8 series, and will
include the Porsche Panamera, Aston Martin Rapide, and the Mercedes-Benz
