Small means mighty in the MINI John Cooper Works - often shortened to JCW. It's made to push performance to new limits, doing so in undeniable MINI style. As the fastest-ever full production MINI car, the John Cooper Works leaves the rest of the compact car class standing.
You can choose the JCW as a Hatch, Convertible, Coupé, Roadster, Countryman or Paceman. In every incarnation, the car is defined with optional sport racing stripes and bold red paintwork accents, such as on the roof and door mirror caps. It also sits slightly lower to the ground than other models in the range, and sports a hexagonal mesh front grille.
Typical MINI style is seen in the rounded headlights and sporty twin exhaust pipes. Air ducts added to the front hint at the extra force from the engine. The convertible version can bring you the added thrill of top-down motoring, with the semi-automatic soft-top roof lowering quickly to take full advantage of sunny days.
On the inside, the perfectly circular instrument dials, headrests and controls can only be MINI. Models such as the Countryman come with comfortable sports seats, finished in bright red piping. The large speedometer sits in the centre, and can optionally include displays for MINI infotainment systems. At the driver's position, the stainless steel pedals and footrests add to the sporty character. There's plenty of storage behind the two ergonomic seats, with up to 240 litres of space in the boot.
Customise your MINI with cloth, leather, or a mix of both for the upholstery. The Colour Line options for the interior finish add even more personality to the car. It's also possible to add John Cooper Works branding to the door sills. Pick the Chili Package for a multi-function steering wheel, velour floor mats and added storage.
The power within the compact JCW is generated by either a 1.6-litre engine or the 2.0-litre version in the next-generation Hatch. Special John Cooper Works tuning gives the car an extra power boost. Strength and efficiency levels across the range are attractively high, especially with the generous fuel tank capacity. You have at least 211bhp and 280Nm to work with at the car's peak, taking the 0-60mph speed to within seven seconds.
Certain versions come with MINI's ALL4 four-wheel drive system. It makes the car hug the road and grip tightly in corners. The John Cooper Works also shows off the latest safety measures, such as Automatic Stability Control + Traction. Driver assistances include Cornering Brake Control, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist.
An active rollover bar is fitted, as are comprehensive surrounding airbags. Add optional bi-Xenon headlights for even higher visibility at night. In all situations, the John Cooper Works keeps you protected and confident.
