Another model from MINI has been upgraded to the sporty JCW model with the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman joining the 3-door hatch, Clubman and Convertible in the range.
The MINI JCW Countryman will be priced from $56,900 and will possess premium features, a dynamic drive plus the latest safety technology.
A driver assist package, active cruise control with stop and go function, front and rear park distance control and park assist are included in the package.
Exclusive to the JCW Countryman will be hazy grey interior highlights; JCW leather trimmed sports seats; JCW door sills, gear shift, instrumentation and sports pedals; red grille insert; LED headlights, head-up display with comprehensive info and a 12 speaker Harmon/Kardon system.
Under the bonnet is a four-cylinder 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine (170kW/350Nm) and a six-speed manual transmission and All4 AWD riding on 19” JCW Course Spoke alloy wheels which house 17” Brembo brakes.
Performance will also be enhanced with a revised turbocharger, pistons and exhaust system as well as performance control which reduces understeer and increases traction.
As always with MINI optional extras are also available.
MINI Australia GM Tony Sesto says the MINI countryman has been well received and expects that to continue with the flagship JCW.
“Now with the JCW Countryman’s fantastic combination of performance and usability, we expect even more excitement to be generated across the range.”
