There will be a new MINI variant hitting town soon, and it’s the MINI One, according to MINI Malaysia’s Facebook page. The same post also said that the MINI One will be reaching Malaysia next month (August 2011), and in limited numbers – only 31 units.

We’re guessing that the One in question is the One hatchback. One will be the entry level model of the range, which in Malaysia consists of the Cooper and turbocharged Cooper S. The One is powered by a 1.6-litre NA engine with 98 hp and 153 Nm of torque, 22 hp and 7 Nm less than the Cooper.

Launched in November 2010 here, the facelifted Cooper is priced at RM195,888 while the Cooper S will set you back RM239,888. How much do you think the entry point of MINI ownership will be?
