How many cylinders does a Mini Cooper have?

I know Mini Coopers are pretty expensive cars, but I’m not sure if it’s because they have great mechanical parts or just because of the interiors. Do you know how many cylinders a Mini Cooper has?

There are three to four cylinders in a
Mini Cooper
engine, depending on the exact model you choose. The 2023 Mini Cooper base trim comes standard with a 134-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-L three-cylinder engine, while the Mini Cooper S has a 189-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-L four-cylinder engine with an optional upgrade to a 228-horsepower four-cylinder engine available.
This may not sound like a lot, but it’s important to remember that Mini Coopers are known for their small stature. Due to this vehicle’s small size, these engines are more than enough to give the Mini Cooper a zippy, exciting driving experience.
Mini Coopers do get their high prices partially from their interior parts, but the main reason that Minis are so expensive is the high-quality materials they use. Not only will a Mini Cooper come with a high-performance engine, but you’ll also get a luxury interior built with excellent materials.
