United-States When does turbo get involved for Countryman S?

As far as I know, turbo only get involved when rpm is higher than some certain number, what is it? Does Sport mode make the turbo be involved earlier?

No, the turbo is working all the time, though at very low revs and small throttle openings it doesn't do a lot. Peak torque starts at 1600rpm so at that point the turbo is working flat out when the throttle is wide open.

As far as I'm aware, sport mode only alters throttle response (that is, the throttle is opened further for the same amount of pedal travel) and automatic transmission shift points - it doesn't alter the engine behaviour, just the 'feel'.

I believe the sport button also makes the steering heavier.

Only if you have the Sport Package will the button give you full Sport. Including the 198Lbs of torque at 3800rpm.

United-States Turbo and Sport mode.

The Sport button gives you a sharper throttle response, Tightens up the steering and Automatics have their Shift points changed. Little sharper and crisper if your carving some twisty roadways.
