2016 Mini Countryman – Engine and Fuel Economy

It is pretty certain that 2016 Mini Countryman will also get a new engine. For the basic variant hopefully one could expect a four-cylinder 1.5 liter engine, whereas the previous variant came with a 1.6 liter one. The engine will be capable of producing up to 135 HP and have a torque of 150 lb-ft. Rumours suggest that Mini might release a diesel variant too. In that case, the engine will be much less powerful compared to its petrol variant. But being a diesel engine it will offer better fuel economy and improved torque. Engine will be mated with manual front wheel and automatic four-wheel drive. Countryman will have a top speed of 134 mph and will be able to reach from) to 60 mph with in just 8 seconds. Other than that a more fuel-efficient engine is expected.
