MINI updates the John Cooper Works family

Article by Christian A., on May 18, 2012

MINI revealed today the updated John Cooper Works models featuring a new-generation engine and other powertrain innovations. In the MINI Countryman JCW, the 1.6-liter engine delivers 218 hp and 280 Nm of torque, enough to help the crossover hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.0 seconds – regardless of whether the power flows through the standard six-speed manual gearbox or the optional six-speed automatic.

The top speed is limited to 225 km/h / 140 mph (automatic: 223 km/h / 139 mph), while the fuel consumption is 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres / 38.2 mpg (automatic: 7.9 l/100 km / 35.8 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 172 grams (184 g) per kilometre.

Unfortunately, the other models will have only 211 hp as the official press release says that only the Countryman JCW has 218 hp. So, the 1.6-liter engine will deliver 211 hp and 260 Nm of torque, while the overboost function will allow this figure to be raised to 280 Nm for a short time, on the other models. Thanks to the Minimalism technology, the fuel consumption has also been reduced by up to 0.5 litres per 100 km, depending on the model.

Regarding the performances, the MINI John Cooper Works sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.5 seconds (automatic: 6.7 sec) on the way to a top speed of 238 km/h / 148 mph (236 km/h / 147 mph).

This model has a fuel consumption of 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres / 42.8 mpg (automatic: 7.1 l/100 km / 39.8 mpg) and CO2 emissions come in at 153 grams (165 g) per kilometre. The MINI John Cooper Works Clubman is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.8 seconds (automatic: 7.0 sec) and has a top speed of 238 km/h / 148 mph (236 km/h / 147 mph). Fuel economy is 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres / 42.2 mpg (automatic: 7.2 l/100 km / 39.2 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 155 grams (167 g) per kilometre.

The MINI John Cooper Works Convertible sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.9 seconds (automatic: 7.1 sec) and reaches a top speed of 235 km/h / 146 mph (233 km/h / 145 mph). Fuel consumption is just 6.8 litres per 100 kilometres / 41.5 mpg (automatic: 7.3 l/100 km / 38.7 mpg) and CO2 emissions are limited to 157 grams (169 g) per kilometre.

The MINI John Cooper Works Coupe is the fastest model with a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.4 seconds (automatic: 6.6 sec) and a top speed of 240 km/h / 149 mph (238 km/h / 148 mph). Fuel consumption is 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres / 42.8 mpg (automatic: 7.1 l/100 km / 39.8 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 153 grams (165 g) per kilometre.

The MINI John Cooper Works Roadster hits 100 km/h (62 mph) from rest in 6.5 seconds (automatic: 6.7 sec) and continues on to a top speed of 237 km/h / 147 mph (235 km/h / 146 mph). Fuel consumption is 6.8 litres per 100 kilometres / 41.5 mpg (automatic: 7.3 l/100 km / 38.7 mpg), with CO2 emissions recorded as 157 grams (169 g) per kilometre.
