The Tiny John Cooper Works (JCW) Ruralist hot hatch goes on sale this period in Australia with price turn from $56,900 plus on-means costs.
The JCW Countryman is the fourth assistant to be added to the JCW range, and the second replica that combines the 170kW JCW machine package with the All4 intelligent all-circle-drive system.
“The all-new Miniature Countryman range has been extremely well received, both in Continent and internationally,” said MINI Continent General Manager, Tony Sesto. “Now with the flagship JCW variant’s fantastic combination of performance and serviceability, we expect even more tension to be generated across the range.”
The BMW-sourced 170kW/350Nm pair-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol mechanism is capable of propelling the JCW Countryman to 100km/h in 6.5 twinkling, with either the eight-swiftness sports automatic transmission or six-swiftness manual, available to enthusiasts as a no-bill option.
Combined fuel intake sits at 7.8L/100km for the handbook and 7.4L/100km for the automatic, with the impulsive experience personalised via three selectable impulsive modes: Normal, Sport or Budding.
The high-performance 17-in Brembo brake package advance as standard, nestled behind the 19-advance JCW Course Spoke light devalue wheels. The exterior is highlighted with a pianissimo black finish to the roof rail at and side sill mouldings, patch JCW side scuttles add further distinction. The JCW-specific dual exhaust main are given a chrome finish.
Inner JCW touches continue inside the JCW Ruralist, with front passengers welcomed into Dinamica/Skin-trimmed JCW sports seats as the Chauffeur grips a three-spoke JCW amusement leather multi-function control wheel.
