Mini presents John Cooper Works versions for the Countryman and Clubman models
Updated versions get more power
Mini has introduced updated versions for the John Cooper Works Clubman and John Cooper Works Countryman. Both models get an updated drivetrain with more powerful engines and a brand new gearbox.
Both JCW models use the new 4-cylinder engine with Mini TwinPower Turbo technology and 225 kW/306 hp with 450 Nm. The updated engine is lifted directly from the BMW X2 M35i and offers an increase of 75 hp on the previous models.
Power is sent to a Mini ALL4 all-wheel-drive setup via a new eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The new Mini John Cooper Works Clubman turns in an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, with the new Mini John Cooper Works Countryman achieving the same in 5.1 seconds – 1.4 and 1.5 seconds faster than in the respective previous models.
The new JCW variants receive fresh new sports exhaust system with twin exit pipes. The suspension has been revised with model specific tweaks. Both cars are available with adaptive dampers and new sports brake systems.
The Clubman and Countryman JCW ride on black 18-inch wheels and feature LED headlights, a 6.5-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system and heated seats as standard equipment.
