This fall MINI is set to introduce the 2013 MINI John Cooper Works Countryman, which is the first time a John Cooper Works model is being offered with four doors and all-wheel-drive. MINI has just released a handful of photos showing the high-performance Countryman in action.
The MINI John Cooper Works Countryman is powered by a 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder with 218 horsepower and 218 lb-ft. that accelerates it from 0-62 mph in 7.0 seconds.
The 2013 MINI John Cooper Works Countryman can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission or automatic transmission. The standard ALL4 all-wheel-drive system distributes drive seamlessly between the front and rear axle using an electromagnetic center differential. This means power is always sent to the wheels where it can be transferred most effectively into forward propulsion.
Standard equipment also includes an aerodynamic kit, 18-inch light-alloy wheels in Twin Spoke design (19-inch optional), red brake callipers and sports suspension with firmly tuned springs and dampers, strengthened anti-roll bars and a 10-millimeter lower ride height.
Inside it gets the special John Cooper Works cockpit design with sports seats, sports steering wheel, interior trim strips in Piano Black, anthracite-colored roof liner and dark speedometer and rev counter dials; John Cooper Works door sills; optional: sports seats with Lounge Leather trim in Carbon Black Championship Red, interior trim strips in Chili Red.
MINI hasn’t announced the final pricing.
