BMW Group and PSA Peugeot CitroŽn have agreed to extend their successful cooperation in the field of petrol four-cylinder engines. They will jointly conduct a feasibility study concerning a new family of engines, with advanced technology features aimed at delivering excellent power and torque characteristics combined with reduced fuel consumption and CO2-emissions. If the study confirms the expected technological, industrial and financial benefits the two companies intend to enter into a joint development project.


PSA Peugeot CitroŽn and BMW Group have already a cooperation agreement concerning the development and production of a family of 1.6 - litre turbocharged petrol engines, encompassing two technologies: fully variable valve drive and direct injection, with power ranking from 55 kW (75 hp) to 128 kW (175 hp). The engines sport the newly launched MINI as well as Peugeot and CitroŽn vehicles.
