Mini Cooper Countryman Blasting it way through the European Market
|   Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Best known with reference to the movie: the Italian Job, the Mini Cooper car lineup has been a growing brand over the years. In the last two years alone, the brand has introduced new and re-imagined models of the Mini Cooper Countryman and Wagen. Although the Countryman S ALL4 completely defies the mini-ness of the car, the car is still one of the latest flagship cars of the Brand and has been sky rocketing sales for the company in the European market.


With the JCW model of the car having all the enhanced tweaks and suspension power, the car is highly demanded in the tiny streets of Europe. The JCW treatment completely gives the car more power than it had ever before making it a man's favorite in terms of energy and practical compared to the tiny road sizes in most of European cities.

The Entire Countryman lineup and the Countryman S hit the market in 2011 but the JCW model will be coming in the market in 2013. With only a few selected people getting a chance to be behind the JCW model, we managed to get a quick review from the prototype testers. This is not the first mini that received the JCW treatment. The company has been sending most of it's previous cars to the artist to completely supercharge the engine and give the public the true boost they want to feel in a mini.

The completely turbocharged 1.4 liter I-4 power of the engine gives the driver the enhanced thrill of speed and power while driving down the open roads. The JCW did however have to find a way to reinforce the car for the extra speed and power. They successfully managed to get around that problem by giving the Countryman enhanced black and head, strong and low compression pistons and sodium filled exhaust valves.

The company announced that the JCW treatment gave the countryman 211 hp and 207 pound feet torque which was never possible in the standard model. This is an increase in 30 hp which is surprising as the previous models received more power through the JCW. Maybe that's why the JCW model also includes a temporary charger that gives the car power of up to 221 pound feet torque, the new model also comes in 6-speed gearbox as compared to the 5-speed engine in the pervious model.

While other minis are rear-drive cars, the JCW countryman will only be a front drive vehicle with All4 drive as a standard issue. The new JCW system transfers nearly 50 percent of the torque speed to the rear axle giving the car a more enhanced boost the driver would need. With the vehicle using an electromagnet to troute that power, the car is the first of it's kind in the Mini lie up.

We expect the mini Countryman All4 JCW to be an equally popular vehicle in the market. However, with the much larger tag price and the limited edition of the car, it is less likely that Mini will be able to pull it off.
