Autoblog is suggesting the motor may only be used in the rumored upcoming Countryman-based 9-2.

They don't list a source for that information so I suppose it is just their speculation for now. I'm sure that, if Saab does used the Mini platform for a future vehicle, it will use the BMW engine. It only makes sense. I just don't necessarily agree it will be limited to that vehicle. We'll have to wait and see as more information comes out.
