The Mini John Cooper Works Countryman closes the Countryman range with its track-backed DNA and sporty appearance. It’s available in three sub-trims that all feature the same 2.0-liter turbo inline-four, making 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, standard with a six-speed manual in base guise, with an optional eight-speed Sport auto available.
Entry to the range is by means of the Classic sub trim, which features only the barest of essentials: cloth seating, a rearview camera, rear park distance control, and a leather JCW steering wheel are standard at least, while a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch wheels complete the stock feature list. A 6.5-inch infotainment display and six-speaker audio system are fitted for your auditory and media needs. The Signature trim features the Steptronic Sport Auto transmission as standard and is also fitted with emergency automatic braking and forward-collision warning. The benefit of this trim is the access it has to an upgraded sound system, touchscreen capabilities, navigation and Apple CarPlay at the very least. Upholstery can be optioned in leather or leatherette, and more driver assistance features can be specced on. The Iconic trim boasts the most onboard features, including power exterior mirrors that auto-dim, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound setup, an 8.5-inch touchscreen display with navigation, wireless charging and Mini Connected services, as well as Nappa leather seats which are heated in the front.
