Mini Unveils New John Cooper Works Models

Mini has produced new versions of its three-door hatchback and convertible John Cooper Works models.

The new models also measure up to the latest Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standards, thanks to the inclusion of new exhaust filtration technology.

Despite the new emissions tech, performance remains unaffected. The 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine produces 231hp, and the hatchback can crack the sprint from 0-60mph in 6.1 seconds – edging the time of the convertible by 0.3 seconds.

As standard, the models come fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox. The hatchback emits 158-157g/km of CO2, while the convertible puts out 162-161g/km. Under the latest regulations, both figures are dependent on the vehicle’s specification.

An optional eight-speed automatic is also available, and this helps to bring emissions levels down to 142-140g/km and 148-145g/km respectively.
