The brake system consists of 360 mm front discs and four-piston fixed calipers finished in Chili Red, while the rear sees 330 mm discs and single-piston floating calipers instead. Well, look closely and you might notice the JCW Countryman's redesigned grille, while the LED headlamps and the taillamps have been revamped (Union Jacks, anyone?), too.
Two new colours are available, White Silver metallic and Sage Green metallic, along with the new Piano Black exterior option that darkens the headlamp surrounds, rear lights, radiator grille, door handles, and model lettering on the luggage compartment lid. We've got one already * Mini warms up the JCW GP around the Nurburgring * Chinese-built electric Mini for New Zealand? The central instrument panel, meanwhile, gains high-gloss Piano Black surfaces for its bezel and touch-sensitive control panels. The 2021 Mini JCW Countryman's engine comes with the advanced Mini TwinPower Turbo technology and an independent cooling system. The spontaneous power delivery, which is sustained into high load ranges, enables the new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 5.1 seconds. In addition to model-specifically modified components, the chassis also features suspension and damping features refined with racing expertise, DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) and electromechanical steering.
Anyway, now's the time for the John Cooper Works version, aka "the quick one".
The vehicle can stay connected thanks to a standard SIM card and buyers opting for the Navigation Plus option receive real-time traffic data, as well as Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and the Amazon Alexa voice assistant.
