The Mini John Cooper Works Clubman is quicker than ever
The Mini John Cooper Works Clubman has been updated with even more power.
A new turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four produces 306 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. That's a huge increase over the 228 hp and 258 lb-ft offered in the outgoing model.
Mini says it's enough to get the John Cooper Works Clubman to 62 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is limited to 155 mph.
Compared to the prior JCW 2.0-liter, Mini says this new engine has a tougher crankshaft, new pistons that drop the compression ratio from 10.2:1 to 9.5:1 and a bigger turbocharger, among other modifications.
All-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission both come standard.
As ever, the Clubman remains a practical choice, even in JCW guise.
The brake system has been "redesigned" and has new cooling ducts, Mini says. The system features 14.2-inch front and 13.4-inch rear discs, with red-painted calipers wearing a John Cooper Works logo.
The refreshed 2020 Clubman was revealed earlier this year at the Shanghai Motor Show.
Production of the Mini John Cooper Works Clubman starts this July. US prices and availability has yet to be confirmed.
