1.6 Wins Engine of the Year

the 1.6 Turbo engine just took home an engine of the year award along with the N55 I6 from parent BMW...

Quote:
This year the 1.4 to 1.8-litre displacement class of the International Engine of the Year Award was once again dominated by the 1.6-litre turbocharged engine developed for BMW and MINI models. This unit features a Twin Scroll turbocharger and petrol direct injection combined with variable valve control based on the VALVETRONIC principle patented by the BMW Group. In its latest evolution – available from summer 2014 in the new MINI Cooper S Countryman (fuel consumption combined: 6.0 l/100 km [47.1 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 139 g/km) and the new MINI Cooper S Paceman (fuel consumption combined: 6.0 l/100 km [47.1 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 139 g/km) – the four-cylinder powerplant boasts output raised to 140 kW/190 hp. The responsive, high-revving nature and excellent efficiency of this engine once again set benchmarks that have ensured its eighth class win in succession.

I would like to think the F56 coopers 1.5ltr will win next years awards in that case.

Yes that would nice... to be driving a car with an award winning engine

I've read a bit about turbo chargers while waiting for my car... even my work colleagues who pretend to know about engines didn't know what a twin scroll turbo was... they do now

I'm confused........is this the same engine as is in the F56 MCS, or a new engine which is going to be for the new Countryman & Paceman.......



Loving my Midnight Black MCS. It's been built, It's been delivered! It's finally mine!

there is indeed a good chance of that happening, looking forward to seeing what engines will make it to that list and if this or anything close to it will make the list.
