Leaked: 2015 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works (JCW) shows its face

Article by Andrew Christian, on December 10, 2014

The all-new 2015 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works (JCW) will make its official debut next month at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, but ahead of the debut the naughty hot hatch showed its face on the Web. As expected, the vehicle is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces 228 hp (170 kW) between 5200 rpm and 6000 rpm as well as 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque available between 1250 rpm and 4800 rpm.

The engine pushes the small vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds when using the standard six-speed manual gearbox and in 6.5 seconds when equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The engine promises to offer an average fuel consumption of 6.7 l/100 km (35.1 US mpg or 42.1 UK mpg) when equipped with the manual transmission and 5.7 l/100 km (41.2 US mpg or 49.5 UK mpg).

When it comes to design, the new 2015 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works (JCW) is pretty similar to the concept version unveiled earlier this year at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show.

We can see the stylish front bumper with plenty of air intakes, a new air scoop for the front hood, well-known alloy wheels and we expect to see central exhaust tailpipes at the rear as well as a rear roof spoiler.

Inside, the vehicle gets a three-spoke steering wheel, sports seats and aluminum pedals. Compared with its predecessor, the new 2015 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works (JCW) is 100 kg lighter and weighs 1,205 kg. More details to be revealed!
