The BMW Group and PSA Peugeot Citroën will continue their successful engine collaboration. An agreement to that effect was signed by Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, and Philippe Varin, Chairman of the Managing Board of PSA Peugeot Citroën, in Paris.

The two companies have agreed to develop the next generation of the jointly designed 4-cylinder petrol engine which will meet EU 6 requirements. Currently, the engine is being used in several MINI, Peugeot and Citroën brand models.

The partners have also confirmed to examine other possible areas for cooperation at systems and component level, with the aim of leveraging synergies in the development, production and procurement of selected components.

    Good for PSA, bad for BMW?

    Why would it be bad for BMW? You think French can’t make solid engine or what?

      I have no idea actually… I was gonna ask, what is the reputation of Peuget and Citroen for their engines?

      • Straight Six

        It may not be on BMW level, but it runs solidly enough, and I think cooperation like this can only bring benefits to all sides, but that’s just my opinion.
