The brand new-generation Mini Cooper SE will include a John Cooper Works version, however this time it brings beauty adjustments solely. The 2023 Cooper S two-door made 189 horsepower and 206 pound-feet of torque from its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the JCW model made 238 hp and 235 lb-ft from the identical engine. This time, the electrical powertrain within the JCW trim makes the identical 215 hp and 253 pound-feet of torque from a single motor on the entrance axle because it does within the 2025 Mini Cooper SE, powered by an identical 54.2-kWh battery. The 0-62 mph time takes the identical 6.7 seconds, and European regulators give it the identical 250-mile vary on the WLTP cycle.
It will not be confused for the common hatchback in any other case. If the purple stripes do not give the sport away, the chunky diffuser within the entrance will. Backing up that aero mod, there are Chilli Crimson aspect mirror caps and a Chilli Crimson roof completed with a hatch spoiler, purple JCW-logo brake calipers, a gloss black encompass for the grille, snazzy two-tone wheels in a design known as Lap Spoke, and, naturally, JCW logos sprinkled about. These with a eager eye for Mini will not want all that, they’re going to spot the dual horizontal bars for DRLs, signifying JCW’s minimalism and raciness.
The cabin’s artificial leather-based and knitted material will get held along with purple stitching. On the seats, that is organized with knitting above, vinyl under. The instrument panel and door playing cards put on what Mini calls a “knit protecting,” stylized checkered flags forming a recurring sample. For much more purple, the driving force can set the drive mode selector to Go-Kart Mode, calling up an anthracite purple lighting scheme for the central OLED show and ambient illumination. Mainly the JCW model of a Sport mode, it unleashes sharper throttle response and a “particular Go-Kart sound,” too.
Pricing is not out but, and we do not count on it till we’re a lot nearer to the 2025 launch for this market.
