Named after Cooper Car Company co-founder and racing legend John Cooper, the 2018 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman offers the power and nimbleness of a race car with the performance you’ve come to love from the Mini line-up. Explore all the great features both inside and outside that this new vehicle will offer.

More Powerful Engine

Lift the hood of the 2018 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman and you’ll find one of the most powerful engines yet in a Mini. The vehicle has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Take this strong engine for a spin and you can reach 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, which is almost a full second faster than the John Cooper Works Countryman’s closest model, the Mini Cooper S Countryman. The John Cooper Works Countryman will also come standard with a six-speed manual transmission or optional eight-speed automatic transmission.

Advanced Performance Parts

To handle all that extra power, the John Cooper Works Countryman comes with a few key upgrades on performance parts. This includes Brembo brakes with front calipers that feature four pistons tucked neatly behind 18-inch light alloy wheels, an available sports suspension, active dampers, torque vectoring, and more. The vehicle will also come with Mini’s distinctive ALL4 all-wheel-drive system, which can handle anything from a snowy road to the speedy track.

Stylish Exterior Touches

A few tweaks on the outside make it easy to spot the Mini John Cooper Works Countryman when it’s cruising down the road. The Countryman, which is the largest vehicle Mini has ever made, features red trim around the grille, JCW badges on each side, LED lights, roof rails, and an available spoiler. The vehicle also drops the fog lights to get larger air inlets instead. For a paint job that stands out, Mini will offer Rebel Green body color and Chili Red roof and mirrors as paint options only available on John Cooper Works Countryman vehicles.

Luxurious Interior Comforts

Take a seat inside the 2018 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman and you’ll find yourself surrounded by luxurious comforts and conveniences. There’s the standard panorama moonroof, which offers your passengers an amazing view of the trees, buildings, and sky. You’ll also enjoy sport seats that give you just the right amount of cushioning and support, a Comfort Access keyless entry system where your keys don’t have to leave your pocket for the doors to unlock, and a 6.5-inch touch-screen display infotainment screen.

Excellent Safety Features

The 2018 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman wouldn’t be complete without offering some of the latest safety features. The head-up display shows you important information, such as speed, right above the steering wheel. There’s also camera-based dynamic cruise control, a forward collision avoidance system, parallel parking assistance system, parking sensors, and navigation.
