has announced that its John Cooper Works models are getting a new engine for the 2013 model year. Although the new 1.6L engine puts out the same 208 horsepower and 192 lb-ft. of torque as the outgoing engine, it is more fuel efficient and has reduced emissions.

The new turbocharged 1.6L engine is more efficient thanks to its aluminum block and bearing mounts, reinforced pistons and high-strength cylinder head and low-weight camshafts. The exhaust valves are also sodium-filled to help provide the extra cooling required by a turbocharged engine, and the intake camshaft features infinite phase adjustment. The engine produces its maximum output of 208 hp at 6,000 rpm, while peak torque of 192 lb-ft. is on tap between 1,850 and 5,600 rpm. The overboost function allows this figure to be raised to 207 lb-ft for a short time between 2,000 and 5,200 rpm.

The 1.6L engine is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission, but buyers can also choose a six-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic function.
