MINI Reveals New Turbo 3-Cylinder



Quote:
MINI released information about its next generation of new engines today, confirming not only turbocharged 4-cylinder models but also a new turbo 3-cyliner.

The BMW sub-brand will offer a 1.5-liter three cylinder engine with 134 hp as well as a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 189 hp in higher-performing models. Both powerplants are turbocharged and make use of direct injection, variable camshaft control and variable value control for the four-cylinder unit. They offer peak torque at 1,250 rpm. The 1.5-liter unit offers 162 lb-ft although MINI says that can increase to about 170 lb-ft temporarily with an overboost function.The larger four-cylinder boasts about 206 lb-ft at the same speed and both engines rev to 6,500 rpm.

Those engines will be paired to newly-developed manual and automatic transmissions. The manual gearbox is enhanced with with the ability to adjust engine speed for optimal shifts. A new automatic transmission will be able to communicate with the optional navigation system to adapt gear selection to the current route. While MINI didnít say as much, that sounds an awful lot like the transmission technology first unveiled in the Rolls-Royce Wraith unveiled earlier this year in Geneva.

New MINI products will also come with electrically-adjustable dampers for the first time. Of course, the redesigned chassis is supposed to be stiffer to improve handling while making use of lightweight components to reduce weight. On top of mechanically improved handling, future MINIs will also come with revised electronic power steering.

MINI is expected to debut the 2014 Cooper hardtop at the LA Auto Show in November.

YES! This is excellent news. I know the triple will probably be the darling of the bunch but I've said since the release of the SD it was only a matter of time before the 2.0t petrol would come out. 189hp may be what they release it on but remember there is already a 240hp version in the larger BMWs and even that is said to be in a reasonably mild state of tune. There are going to be quite a few 300hp Mini's about when this is released. Imagine a GP with 300hp from the factory.

If they did a 3000hp someone would still want a tuning kit for it to get more out it.
