Turbo-petrol engines confirmed for Australia

Two powertrains will be offered initially for the Countryman here in Australia. 

The new 2024 Mini Countryman C

To kick things off, the Countryman variants will use a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 115kW of power and 230Nm of torque. This engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. 

Secondly, for the all-wheel drive Countryman S, the brand will offer a more powerful 150kW/300Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. This engine will also be paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Mini claims a nine second sprint to 100km/h for the C, while the all-wheel drive S will be able to do the same sprint in a claimed 7.4 seconds.
