New JCW MINI Countryman

John Cooper Works and MINI go hand in hand when creating some of the hottest small cars on the market, and with the latest Countryman compact SUV, that is no different.

As the largest model in the MINI range, the second generation Countryman provides excellent off-roading capabilities, superb comfort and plenty of storage space to offer supreme practicality. So when JCW got its hands on the small crossover, it added more dynamic features to make it as exciting on the road as it is off it.

Fitted with a 231bhp four-cylinder turbocharged engine and MINI’s ALL4 all-wheel drive system as standard, JCW adds sports suspension, Brembo sports brakes and lightened 18-inch alloy wheels to make the Countryman more dynamic.

Also added is a JCW-specific body kit for improved aerodynamic grip, which helps the JCW Countryman get from 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds, almost a second quicker than the Cooper S Countryman ALL4, showing off the racing expertise of John Cooper Works. The model can come with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed sports automatic transmission.

As MINI has used the Dakar Rally to develop its sporty systems, that off-road knowledge was transferred across to the JCW Countryman to make it even more dynamic. Decked out in the JCW signature racing green with red detailing, the JCW Countryman looks the part, and with its stylish interior, maintains the high standard of the racing brand.

Fitted with MINI Driving Modes, you can set up the car how you like it, with Sport, Mid and Green modes helping find the right driving style for you. By altering the dampers and responsiveness of the controls, you can go from a smooth drive to dynamic performance in no time.

Coming with the top end features found in the Countryman, such as the safety systems, a Harmon Kardon speaker system and MINI Connected infotainment system. With the comfort of the standard Countryman and the sportiness of John Cooper Works, the JCW Countryman is a great combination and one that impresses in all environments.
