John Cooper Works
John Cooper Works. Words like power, speed and style may come to mind, but what does it actually mean and what makes these models so special? Here’s our rundown so you can decide whether a JCW is right for you.
Let’s start at the beginning, John Cooper Works is part of the MINI family but packs more of a punch than the original models. You can expect upgraded engines, luxury interiors and a classic finish that will turn heads on the roads.
If you are considering a John Cooper Works, it’s good to know the ins and outs of the motor. The first exclusive feature is the aerodynamic kit. The addition of this keeps the engine and brakes cooler, making for smoother driving and stopping.
The aesthetics are something to be admired too. With stylised details and a steering wheel coated in perforated leather, sports seats come as standard and even the door sills boast a John Cooper Works logo.
Sport mode is built into each John Cooper Works model and there’s a strong focus on handling and control. With an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, you can choose between manual or automatic and both options feed the speed and power that these models are known for. Start/Stop makes the car lighter on the fuel-consumption side of things as well as seeing a reduction in noise and emissions.
There are different models in the range; the 3-door, Convertible, Clubman and Countryman. With personalities of their own, you will have to find which model suits you best. But what you will find is that all of them have the same punch and power. We are talking racing grade tuning and better parts than you would find in the original models. If you want fast acceleration and a sportier finish, check out the range and maybe even book a test drive to see it for yourself.
