Help!!! R57 cooper engine query

I think I may be being dim but... I was told all 2nd Gen minis had a turbo (although only the S and JCW were supercharged)... can someone confirm if I am right or, correct me if I am wrong...

All first generation Cooper S, including JCW and GP, are supercharged. All second gen S, JCW and GP2 are turbocharged. ALL 3rd gen are also turbo including the base non-S (which is a 3 cylinder that accelerates better than a supercharged R53).

To clarify this further- only the "S" models within the Generation 1 and Generation 2 are super or turbo charged. The base Cooper models are normally aspirated (NON super or turbo charged). But when it comes to the generation 3 models even the base models have a turbo but MINI focuses more on the "S" model as being Turbo charged.

This article explains the Gen3 engines pretty well:
