Mini has revealed an update for its performance-oriented Countryman John Cooper Works (JCW) small SUV, which is set to arrive in Australia towards the end of 2020.
Among the updated features for the JCW are a refreshed front grille treatment, a new sports exhaust system, a digital instrument cluster, and an updated multimedia suite.
New LED light clusters feature in a slightly updated design.
The JCW’s performance cred comes from its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 225kW/450Nm, placing it squarely in competition with Mercedes-AMG’s GLA35 small SUV (225kW/400Nm). The JCW can sprint from 0-100km/h in a claimed 5.1 seconds and will consume as low as 6.9L/100km, according to the brand’s ‘preliminary’ figures. It will maintain the same eight-speed ZF torque converter automatic and ‘All4’ all-wheel-drive system as the outgoing car.
