This year’s (6-17th January) edition of the Dakar will see MINI Motorsport and its motorsport partner X-raid represented by two vehicle types: MINI John Cooper Works Buggy and MINI John Cooper Works Rally.


Dakar Rally 2019 is almost upon the eight MINI Motorsport vehicles set to compete in what is recognised as the most demanding long-distance cross-country rally in the motorsport calendar. For 2019, Peru has been selected as the Dakar hosting country; its desert landscape and mountain tracks to provide 5,000 km of off-road racing action that will not only test the competing teams’ vehicles but the racing crews and riders.


Full information on the MINI Dakar challengers, the teams and crews, and racing heritage of MINI, plus much more can be found within two MINI Dakar Media Guides released today.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
