Mini to rework BMW diesel

Reading time: min

Mini will have to heavily rework BMW’s forthcoming three-cylinder motor if it is to fit in the Mini hatchback, Cabriolet and Clubman.

Sources within the firm are confident that the engine will feature in the Mini line-up but, as with the just-released four-cylinder diesel, it will need to have many of its ancillary components altered.

Minis will sneak beneath 100g/km of CO2 emissions when the facelifted range gets BMW’s own 1.6-litre diesel engine this autumn.
