MINI has introduced a new engine for their JCW lineup.

The turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine has same the output and torque as its predecessor, but has "substantially" reduced fuel consumption and emissions. In order to get these improved figures, the engine features an aluminum block, reinforced pistons and a low-weight crankshaft. There's also sodium-filled exhaust valves, an engine start/stop system and brake energy regeneration.

In the JCW Countryman, it produces 218 PS (160 kW / 215 hp) and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) of torque. In the rest of the lineup, the engine develops a maximum output of 211 PS (155 kW / 208 hp) and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) of torque.
