2014 MINI engines revealed

Earlier this year MINI announced the all-new namesake model will be unveiled on November 18. Now, the BMW-owned company has revealed important details about the car’s engine lineup. Upon launch it will be available with a 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 134 bhp (100 kW) and a peak torque of 162 lb-ft or 170 lb-ft with overboost available from just 1,250 rpm.

There will also be a beefier 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter mill outputting 189 bhp (141 kW) and a maximum torque of 206 lb-ft or 221 lb-ft when overboost is activated.


MINI says other gasoline mills will be offered so we assume there will be a stronger unit to power the S and John Cooper Works (JCW) derivatives. As for diesels, at first there will only be a 1.5-liter common-rail direct-injection power unit rated at 114 bhp (85 kW) and 199 lb-ft. It will be a replacement for the old 1.6-liter and according to MINI it will be seven percent more frugal.

All these engines are going to be linked to new manual and automatic transmissions.
