Inside the car we can find a sport steering wheel, sport seats, piano black or Chili Red trim, revised instrumentation and the JCW sill plates.
The 2013 MINI Countryman JCW is powered by a 1.6 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is developing a total output of 215 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 280 Nm (207 lb-ft), but with overboost, the torque figure can go up to 300 Nm (221 lb-ft).
