The completely redesigned turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with a laundry list of technical features whose development is rooted in the engine expertise of the BMW Group, allowing 2011 MINI’s to perform even better than the previous models did.

 

The new 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine combines the precision of direct injection with a twin scroll turbocharger with the incredible power enhancing and fuel efficient technology known as Valvetronic, making the engine the most efficient in its displacement class. The new turbocharged 1.6-liter four cylinder engine is equipped with fully variable valve management, which is based on the VALVETRONIC system used in BMW engines. This technology optimizes the engine’s responses and, at the same time, significantly reduces fuel consumption and emission levels.

 

The MINI Cooper S Hardtop equipped with the new turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine accelerates to from 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds. MINI Cooper S Clubman and Convertible with the same engine  0-60 mph = 6.8 seconds.

 

The MINI Cooper S boasts 181 hp and 177 lb-ft respectively or 192 lb-ft with overboost

 

The 2011 MINI vehicles are expected to maintain their impressive fuel economy ratings, but official figures will be issued closer to delivery this fall.
