Mini Clubman gets John Cooper Works overhaul

21.09.2016

Mini has given its Clubman station wagon the John Cooper Works treatment, claiming it blends high performance and sporting dynamics, with everyday practicality.

Using the all-wheel drive Clubman Cooper S ALL4 as a base, the Works spec adds more aggressive front and rear bumpers, boot spoiler, new air inlets, unique door sills, standard LED front and rear lights, special Rebel Green hue and the choice of 18-inch black Grip Spoke or 19-inch Course two-tone alloy wheels.

Underneath its skin, the Clubman Works gets reworked suspension and brakes, Variable Damper Control, Mini Driving Mode selector, Electronic Differential Lock and John Cooper Works badged four-piston Brembo brakes.

Inside, the Works boast Mini's MINImalism interior layout with most of the functions being controlled via a 6.5-inch touchscreen display featuring USB, Bluetooth and satellite navigation.

Additional changes over the standard Clubman includes carbon black finished John Cooper Works sport seats with Dinamica inserts on the headrests, John Cooper Works door sills, stainless steel pedals and cockpit inserts, anthracite roof liner, Chequered Grey and red accents and John Cooper Works gear lever.

Like the standard Works, power comes from a 2.0-litre TwinPower petrol engine making 170 kW with torque jumping 30 N.m to 350 N.m thanks to a larger intercooler and modified turbocharger. Mated with either with a six-speed manual or eight-speed Sport Steptronic automatic box, Mini claims a 0-100 km/h sprint of 6.3 secs and top speed of 238 km/h.
