Always true for Lexus. Most modern turbo engines aim at 25bar BMEP and 100kw/L specific output but Lexus tragets 90% of these values, it should be no surprise they are guanranteed an edge on reliability. It's not that they couldn't make competitive power; they choose to not make maximum power out of their engine.
And not surprised to see Mini at the bottom. A highly stressed turbo Inline-3 with 500cc/cyl, nothing could possibly go wrong right?
