The MINI Cooper S has been selected as a recipient of Ward’s Autoworld Magazine’s “10 Best Engines” of 2011.
The Cooper S is honored for its 1.6-liter Turbocharged DOHC I-4 (manufactured by BMW) which produces a respectable 181 horsepower and 177 ft-lb of torque. The title of “best engine” is given annually to ten engines of varying displacements and configurations. To meet the criteria for Ward’s Best Engine, the engine must be included in a regular-production vehicle in the United States. The selection committee considers power and torque output, as well as NVH levels.
