The second era of a MINI Countryman is a biggest and most
versatile denote in a whole operation of a tradition-steeped British
brand. And another greatest now relates to a energy territory of the
MINI John Cooper Works Countryman. With an outlay of 170 kW/231 hp, it
is a many absolute engine ever to be propitious in a MINI: in
multiple with a customary all-wheel expostulate complement ALL4 and a robust
automobile concept, it ensures that a latest serve to a family of
tip John Cooper Works athletes takes a MINI knowledge to a whole
new spin – in terms of both foe lane feeling on a highway and
impassioned pushing fun over unsurfaced terrain.

The new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman (combined fuel
consumption: 7.4 l/100 km; total CO2 emissions: 169 g/km) sprints
from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds with both a customary 6-speed
primer smoothness and a discretionary 8-speed Steptronic sports
transmission. In doing so it is 0.8 or 0.7 seconds faster than the
MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4. The higher opening qualities of
a new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman are serve reflected in
a lively on halt sprints, cornering lively and
deceleration performance. These qualities are a product of an
altogether package that has been gathered formed on John Cooper Works
racing expertise, including not usually a engine and all-wheel drive
complement though also a sports cessation with 18-inch John Cooper Works
light amalgamate wheels and Brembo sports stop system, special body
facilities to optimise aerodynamic properties and cooling atmosphere intake,
and a model-specific cockpit with John Cooper Works sports seats.

More power, some-more space and some-more foe lane feeling on all
terrains.

The new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman is a inheritor to the
brand’s initial tip contestant designed for a compress shred and fitted
as customary with a all-wheel expostulate complement ALL4. The new car’s
enrichment over a prototype is reflected not usually in an output
that is increasing by 10 kW/13 hp and a efficiency-optimised design
of a ALL4 complement though also in lengthened outmost measure and a
substantial boost in space, flexibility and functionality. With an
serve of some 17 centimetres in length and 3 centimetres in width
along with a wheelbase prolongation of 7.5 centimetres, space
accessibility on a 5 wholly fledged seats is now significantly
optimised. The luggage cell can be stretched as compulsory from
450 litres to as many as 1 390 litres. This creates a new MINI
John Cooper Works Countryman a tip contestant with all-round qualities
that provides impassioned pushing fun and well-developed flexibility –
either on a foe track, divided from asphalted roads, in everyday
trade or over lengthier distances.

World premiere in Shanghai, marketplace launch in open 2017.

The new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman will be presented to the
open for a initial time in Apr 2017 during a Shanghai Motor Show.
The marketplace launch will get underway in open 2017.

Developed from longstanding knowledge of foe marks and
convene trails.

In serve to state-of-the-art technology, a sold character
of a new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman is also subsequent from the
brand’s longstanding and successful engine racing tradition. It was 55
years ago that a classical Mini clinched a initial feat – when the
Mini Cooper won a British Touring Car Championship. Since afterwards the
name of mythological sports automobile engineer John Cooper has stood for the
brand’s racing success and a impassioned pushing fun it offers on a road.

Exactly 50 years after a final of 3 undisguised wins by the
classical Mini during a Monte Carlo Rally, a new
MINI John Cooper Works Countryman now points a approach to further
success in this discipline. The new book of this all-rounder
provides a basement for a foe automobile grown by MINI and
a X-raid Team for long-distance rallies. The MINI John Cooper Works
Rally is set to take on a hurdles of a world’s toughest
marathon contests, starting with a Dakar Rally in 2017. As such it
succeeds a MINI ALL4 Racing, that was grown formed on a first
era of a MINI Countryman and won a Dakar Rally 4 times
in succession.

Perfectly harmonised altogether package for tip performance.

The John Cooper Works code has been integrated underneath a MINI
powerful for 10 years. This tighten tie dates behind to a early
years of a classical Mini, whose sporting talent was rescued and
promoted by John Cooper. Today it impacts definitely on a extreme
pushing delight offering by a MINI John Cooper Works Countryman.
The engine, transmission, all-wheel drive, suspension, aerodynamics
and cockpit pattern are not usually geared towards tip performance, they
are also precisely harmonised with a automobile judgment of a new
MINI Countryman. As a result, a latest John Cooper Works denote is an
altogether package for stirring performance, fabricated with racing expertise.

Engine: energy smoothness and sound with racing character.

The 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine commissioned transversely during a front
of a new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman demonstrates performance
characteristics desirous by engine racing. It has a specific chronicle of
MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology with a turbocharging complement integrated
in a expel steel manifold, petrol approach injection, a fully
non-static valve control complement VALVETRONIC and non-static camshaft
control (double VANOS). Made of rarely temperature-resistant material,
a turbocharger generates a charge-air vigour that is now
increasing to 2.2 bar. This creates a basement for rarely enterprising and
long-lasting energy delivery. The engine puts a limit torque of
350 Newton metres on tide during between 1 450 and
4 500 rpm. It delivers a rise outlay of 170 kW/231 hp
within an engine speed operation of 5 000 and 6 000 rpm.

The sold facilities of a new engine grown for
John Cooper Works models embody specific pistons, a vast charge-air
cooler and an additional radiator. In serve there is a sports
empty complement that not usually supports a engine’s performance
characteristics though also gives them an considerable acoustic and visual
dimension. Reduced empty gas vigour promotes extemporaneous power
delivery, while a controllable empty strap and a special geometry
of a tailpipe assistance beget a rarely romantic sound that is
customary of John Cooper Works models. The sports empty complement also
has slim chrome covers for a twin tailpipes.

pattern as good as exhibiting a high spin of inner potency and
change comfort. A rigging sensor enables active engine speed adaptation
for quite energetic shifting. Short shifts and a model-specific
rigging push doorknob promote accurate rigging selection. An 8-speed
Steptronic sports smoothness is optionally available, operated by
means of a admirably designed selector push as good as shift
paddles during a steering wheel. It offers quite brief shift
times and a Launch Control duty for traction-optimised sprint
manoeuvres from standing.

This also has a certain impact on efficiency. With a standard
primer transmission, a new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman has a
total fuel expenditure of 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres and a CO2
emissions spin of 169 grams per kilometre. In and with the
8-speed Steptronic sports transmission, these total are reduced to
6.9 litres and 158 grams respectively (provisional EU exam cycle
figures).

With ALL4 from a mud highway to a foe track.

The opening ability of a new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman
is not usually really high, it is also intensely versatile in terms of the
power operation of uses. This is due to a ALL4 all-wheel drive
system, that not usually optimises traction on unsurfaced turf such
as mud roads though also enhances float fortitude in inauspicious weather
conditions and improves lively when holding bends boldly on the
foe track. The system’s electronic control territory is related to a DSC
(Dynamic Stability Control), ensuring a consistently quick and precise
response during all times in distributing a expostulate torque between the
front and behind wheels.

Thanks to a compress and weight-optimised design, a current
chronicle of a ALL4 all-wheel expostulate complement offers a particularly
fit form of non-static energy distribution. It consists of a power
take-off shelf rigging on a front spindle differential, a dual-section
propeller missile and a behind spindle differential with an
electrohydraulically tranquil hang-on clutch. In sequence to revoke the
torque detriment that occurs when expostulate energy is eliminated to a rear
axle, a new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman uses active DSC with
a brand’s evil front-wheel expostulate in normal situations on
a road. Only when required does a hang-on purchase send drive
torque to a behind wheels within a fragment of a second.

multilink behind spindle in a model-specific version. What is more, the
customary sports cessation of a new MINI John Cooper Works Clubman
facilities a quite parsimonious set-up of a cessation and damping
systems. The speed-related Servotronic steering support – serve a
customary underline – promotes accurate doing on bends and comfortable
manoeuvring during low speeds.

The sports stop complement was designed in partnership with
dilettante manufacturer Brembo and comprises 4-piston fixed-caliper
front brakes on a front wheels, guaranteeing consistently high
deceleration rates even when subjected to heated use. The brake
calipers are finished in red and bear a John Cooper Works trademark at
a front. The Dynamic Stability Control complement also ensures optimum
traction on sprints, lively on bends and protected deceleration. Its
functions embody Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Electronic
Differential Lock Control (EDLC) – that acts as an electronic locking
duty for a front spindle differential – and Performance Control for
stretchable branch when holding bends during speed. The customary trim also
includes 18-inch John Cooper Works light amalgamate wheels in Black Thrill
Spoke. John Cooper Works light amalgamate wheels in a sizes 18 and
19 inches are optionally available.

MINI Driving Modes and Dynamic Damper Control capacitate an
individualised automobile set-up.

geared towards both a conditions on a highway and a driver’s
sold preferences. A rotary switch during a bottom of a rigging or
selector push is used to activate a settings SPORT, MID and GREEN.
This influences a evil curves of a accelerator pedal and
steering, a engine acoustics, a change characteristics of the
8-speed Steptronic sports transmission, if a latter is fitted, and
a Dynamic Damper Control set-up. The characteristics of the
electronically tranquil dampers are geared to a quite dynamic
pushing character in SPORT mode and support a some-more comfort-oriented style
in a other dual modes. GREEN mode is designed for gentle yet
efficiency-optimised driving. A ancillary underline here is the
coasting function, that can be used in and with a 8-speed
Steptronic sports transmission. In GREEN mode, a drivetrain is
decoupled during speeds of between 50 and 160 km/h as shortly as a driver’s
feet is private from a accelerator pedal.
