Mini has revealed new versions of its three-door hatchback and convertible John Cooper Works models.

The new models also meet the latest Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standards, thanks to the inclusion of new exhaust filtration technology.

Despite the new emissions tech, performance remains unaffected. The 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine produces 231hp, and the hatchback can crack the sprint from 0-60mph in 6.1 seconds – edging the time of the convertible by 0.3 seconds.

As standard, the models come fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox. The hatchback emits 158-157g/km of CO2, while the convertible puts out 162-161g/km. Under the latest regulations, both figures are dependent on the vehicle’s specification.

An optional eight-speed automatic is also available, and this helps to bring emissions levels down to 142-140g/km and 148-145g/km respectively.

All cars get 17-inch alloy wheels fitted as standard, along with a sports brake system, a full John Cooper Works aerodynamics kit and sports seats too.

LED headlamps and Union Jack-design rear lights are also fitted as standard.

A new range of personalisation options are available with the cars too, including back-lit trim pieces in front of the passenger side of the car, as well as gloss black surrounds for the headlamps, rear lights and radiator grille.

The John Cooper Works hatchback and convertible are slated due to available to order from January 18, with deliveries slated to commence at the end of March.

No official prices have been revealed yet.

The Mini hatchback and convertible are built in Britain.
