The latest Mini John Cooper Works Countryman, with its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine delivers a blend of style, power, and a sense of adventure. Boasting increased size, the revamped model provides more space, comfort, and safety, all packaged in a minimalist and aerodynamic silhouette with a drag coefficient of 0.26.
Packing a punch with a robust 300hp engine, the JCW Countryman accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in a mere 5.4 seconds. The standard ALL4 all-wheel-drive system ensures precise power distribution, complemented by a high-performance braking system featuring Chilli Red-coloured callipers for robust deceleration.
The distinct exhaust flap system generates a signature sound, marking it as a high-performance model. Inside, the real-time engine sounds amplify the emotional driving experience, while an exclusive JCW sound extension adds racing-inspired tones.
In the safety department, advanced assistance systems, including 12 ultrasonic sensors and four surround-view cameras, offer enhanced protection and support partially automated Level 2 driving. The Driving Assistant Professional package introduces features like assisted lane changes on highway-like routes at speeds of up to 60km/h.
Externally, model-specific details, such as aerodynamic elements, newly designed LED headlights, and an octagonal grille in high-gloss black, elevate the overall appearance. The interior mirrors a minimalist design infused with racing DNA, featuring vertical door handles, red and black colour schemes, and high-grade JCW sports seats. The dashboard, crafted from a two-tone textile made from recycled polyester, adds an eco-friendly touch.
The Mini JCW Countryman’s increased functionality and versatility offer an immersive driving experience. Toggle switches on the Mini toggle bar provide control over driving functions, and the central OLED display introduces Mini Experience Modes, allowing drivers to select various driving ambiences. The go-kart mode promises a sporty ride, accompanied by intensified engine sounds within the cabin.
Introducing voice-controlled interaction, the Mini JCW Countryman utilises a circular OLED display for seamless operation of navigation, telephone, and entertainment functions. Further enhancing the driving ambiance, the Mini projector on the back of the OLED display bathes the interior in atmospheric colour schemes and patterns aligned with the selected Experience Mode.
