B48 in a 2014 MINI Cooper S

The BMW B48 is a turbocharged inline-four petrol engine which replaced the BMW N20 and has been in production since 2014. It was first used in the F56 Mini Hatch and has been used in BMW applications since 2015.

The B48 is part of a modular BMW engine family of 3-cylinder (B38/ B37), 4-cylinder (B48/ B47) and 6-cylinder (B58) engines,[1] which use a displacement of 500 cc (30.5 cu in) per cylinder.

Design[edit]

Compared with its N20 predecessor, the B48 uses a more undersquare design.[2] As per the N20, the block and head are made from aluminium.[3] Other features shared with the N20 include a twin-scroll turbocharger, direct injection, variable valve lift (Valvetronic) and variable valve timing (Double VANOS).[4]

This engine features a reinforced crankshaft with larger main bearings and new pistons with a lower 9.5:1 compression ratio. This allows the engine to take more boost pressure from a larger turbocharger, which blows compressed air through a reworked intake tract.[12] Revealed in May 2019, this engine is shared with the new MINI Countryman JCW, Clubman JCW[13] and JCW GP models.[14] The engine output increased by 55 kW (74 hp) to 225 kW (302 hp) and torque increased to 450 N⋅m (332 ft⋅lb).
