Mini Countryman with FCW styling

German manufacturer has announced plans to offer three new John Cooper Works individual styling packages for both the Countryman and the Paceman as well. The specialists planned to enhance the distinctive profile of two. In terms of sport options, the cars have received a JCW Exterior Package, the Interior Package and the Chili Package. The optional storage package developed for the Mini Countryman also includes a double cup holder at the rear. In the future, the model will be fitted with a rear center console as standard including integrated storage facilities and a 12-volt power socket. As optional, the ones that feel need one or mode, can always fit two cup holders. The range will be enlarged with the permanent all- wheel drive system ALL4 as of July this year with power transmission for all four wheels becoming available for the Mini Cooper Countryman and the Cooper Paceman.

What this means is that ALL4 can be selected in four model variants for both the Mini Countryman and the Paceman while the sport models, the Cooper Countryman and the Cooper Paceman will continue to have all-wheel drive fitted as standard. The power from the Copper variants comes from a 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 122 BHP and it is distributed between the front and rear wheels not only to enhance traction on slippery surfaces, but also to increase sporty fun. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered a 6-speed manual transmission and optionally a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Chili Package offers an attractive combination of racing-oriented flair and high-quality comfort elements. Besides the interior and exterior packages, the models will also come with fog lamps, rain sensors, and automatic air conditioning, on board computer, lighting package, storage package and a lot more.
