Clubman hatchback is made more powerful than ever and is expected to be available by December in the United States.
Combined with the standard all-wheel drive, the Mini John Cooper Works Clubman delivers 258 pound-feet of torque and 228 horsepower from its 2.0-liter twin-turbo 4-cylinder. Many would agree that this is not plenty of juice yet this is still 39 more horsepower as compared to Cooper S and 94 more horsepower than its base model.
0 to 60 is estimated to take about 6 seconds whether you go for the 6-speed manual or its 8-speed auto. Clubman’s focus is obviously topnotch performance and it benefits a lot from its Brembo brakes, a sport exhaust, the JCW sport suspension and the aero body kit complete with improved brake and engine cooling. To improve the center of gravity of the car, the Clubman JCW is sitting 0.4 inch lower to the ground. The overall look is completed by the black 18-inch JCW wheels.
The options available on Mini Clubman JCW are endless and it boasts for having an exclusive Rebel Green paint job as well as sport stripes. Inside its cabin, this vehicle offers black fabric/Dinamica sport seats, a head-up display, optional leather seats with red accents, welcome exterior lighting, and illuminated trim near its interior door handles.
Regardless of the transmission, the new models hits sixty in just 6.0 seconds and can run up to 147 mph, which is a few seconds quicker and 5 mph faster than the previous S model. Meanwhile, its sportier suspension drops the right height to 0.4”. That is why users should expect slightly better handling from the newest model.
As of now, Mini has not published pricing, yet if the trend set by Convertible and Hardtop continues, the new JCW is a bit more expensive than the S Model.
