MINI JCW Countryman Ready For DownUnder

MyDrive | MINI – MINI Australia is proud to announce pricing and specification details for the MINI John Cooper Works (JCW) Countryman.

Priced from $56,900*, the flagship Countryman combines range-topping specification with a premium, dynamic driving experience.

The JCW Countryman is the fourth model to be added to the JCW range, and the second model that combines the 170kW JCW engine package with the All4 intelligent all-wheel-drive system.

“The all-new MINI Countryman range has been very well received, both in Australia and internationally,” said MINI Australia General Manager, Tony Sesto.

“Now with the flagship JCW version’s fantastic combination of performance and usability, we expect even more excitement to be generated across the range.”

Trademark JCW performance touches

The 170kW/350Nm MINI TwinPower turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine is capable of propelling the JCW Countryman to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds, with either the eight-speed sports automatic transmission or six-speed manual, available to enthusiasts as a no-cost option.

Combined fuel consumption sits at 7.8L/100km for the manual and 7.4L/100km for the automatic, with the driving experience personalised via three selectable driving modes: Normal, Sport or Green.

The high-performance 17-inch Brembo brake package comes as standard, nestled behind the 19-inch JCW Course Spoke light alloy wheels. The exterior is highlighted with a piano black finish to the roof rails and side sill mouldings, while JCW side scuttles add further differentiation. The JCW-specific dual exhaust pipes are given a chrome finish.

Exclusive JCW touches continue inside the JCW Countryman, with front passengers welcomed into Dinamica/Leather-trimmed JCW sports seats as the driver grips a three-spoke JCW sports leather multi-function steering wheel.
