Mini Countryman and Clubman JCW models updated

Powerful new additions have been created with performance in mind

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

Mini has updated two performance models in its line-up – the John Cooper Works Clubman and John Cooper Works Countryman.

Both models utilise the same 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine as the cars they replace, but now produce a substantial 75hp more – now pushing out 305hp and 450Nm of torque.

Power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The gearbox also incorporates a launch control function, allowing the car to make the cleanest and quickest standing starts possible.

Mini claims that this power is enough to send the John Cooper Works Clubman from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, and the John Cooper Works Countryman to the same speed in 4.9 seconds. Both top out at an electronically limited 155mph top speed.

The pair are also available with new electronically adjustable dampers, and have had their suspension geometry extensively revised to help in the corners.

Inside, the duo get full John Cooper Works sport seats and steering wheel, along with a six-inch touchscreen infotainment system running Mini’s latest software. It also incorporates a reversing camera, while both cars also benefit from rear parking sensors, 18-inch wheels and heated seats, too. Those 18-inch alloys can be upgraded to 19-inch ‘Circuit Spoke’ units at an additional cost, however.

   

Both the Mini John Cooper Works Clubman and John Cooper Works Countryman will go on sale in July, priced from £34,250 and £35,550 respectively.
