Next-generation MINI John Copper Works models will 2.0-liter engine with 230 hp

Article by Christian A., on July 3, 2014

For those who don’t know, the current generation of the MINI John Copper Works models are powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers 215 hp in the latest MINI John Cooper Works Paceman. Still, things are about to change as the next-generation MINI John Cooper models will get a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that will generate around 230 hp.

The first model to get the new engine is the MINI John Cooper Works (JCW) that will make its official debut in January, at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, according to Autocar. We already saw the concept version, so we have an idea of the final design.

Comparing it with the current 1.6-liter engine, the new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged will bring and additional 16 hp, as the new MINI JCW will deliver 231 hp. As usual, this model will be offered with a new six-speed manual or an updated version of the six-speed automatic gearbox.

The new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine is already used by the 2014 MINI Cooper S, where it delivers 289 hp and 280 Nm (306 Nm with overboost) of torque. This model promises a fuel consumption of just 5.6 l/100 km.
