Mini Countryman John Cooper Works US pricing announced

Article by Christian A., on September 28, 2012

Mini’s Countryman John Cooper Works edition costs $35,550. Customers would be paying for its speed-boosting features. The most significant addition to the small crossover is the standard ALL4 all-wheel-drive system. This means that it’s the first JCW model to get the technology. It uses an electromagnetic center differential that evenly distributes power between the front and rear wheels.

However, it could also direct power to where the car could get the highest benefit. What powers the all-wheel-drive setup is a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6-liter four pot engine that produces 208 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. The standard equipment includes a six-speed manual gearbox. But what’s offered as an option is a six-speed automatic with Steptronic function and steering wheel shift paddles.

The car can sprint from zero to 60mph in just seven seconds. Mini also claims that the model can return around 31 mpg. To boost the performance, the JCW Countryman features MacPherson struts in the front. Meanwhile, a central-arm rear axle was adapted particularly for the sporty model.

This model is 10-mm lower than the standard Countryman. It also gets thicker sway bars, bigger brakes, and 18-inch wheels. Mini had only announced a few options. So far, it has said that it will offer the following: 19-inch lightweight aluminum wheels, black or red leather-trimmed sport seats and interior trim, and red exterior stripes.
