Mini Countryman goes JCW

January 19, 2017, 02:48 PM IST by Omkar Thakur
Mini Countryman goes JCW

We had brought to you the all-new Mini Countryman when it was unveiled last year. Due to go on sale in Europe from March, the Mini Countryman has gone under the scalpel again already. And this time it is in the hands of the works team, John Cooper Works.

John Cooper Works (JCW) stands for outright performance and speed focus in Mini scheme of things. The JCW Countryman gets the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that develops 228bhp of power and 350Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox for European customers and gets the famous ALL4 all-wheel drive system. It gets a louder free-flow twin exhaust in the back signature to all JCW cars. 

The new Countryman is Mini’s largest car yet and the JCW makes it a performance crossover SUV in the league of the Nissan Juke Nismo or the Mercedes GLA 45 AMG. While the GLA is way more powerful at more than 370bhp of power, the Countryman with its puny dimensions should be a better handler.

The new Countryman is expected to come to India by mid-2017 and the JCW countryman, with its racing stripes, might follow soon after i.e. by end of 2017.
