The British automaker has decided to reveal – just in time for the official public premiere during the Paris Motor Show – the 2017 Clubman JCW, which has all-wheel drive and a 228 hp engine.
The 2017 Clubman JCW hits a nice milestone – it has six doors so it will sprint to 60 mph in exactly six seconds. At the start of the year, just in time for winter, Mini debuted the newest ALL4 all-wheel-drive system for the Clubman. The top of the range Clubman S ALL4 has a 2.0-liter turbo engine packing 189 horsepower (141 kilowatts) and 207 pound-feet (280 Newton-meters) of torque. Now customers can get even more thanks to the 2017 Clubman JCW going up to 228 hp (170 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm). The all wheel drive is standard on the JCW, but customers can choose between a standard six speed manual and an optional eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
The manual gearbox model will tip the scales at 3,450 pounds (1,564 kilograms), and the auto adds just 36 lbs (16 kg) of weight for a total of 3,486 lbs (1,581 kg). This is thus irrelevant for the performance credentials: six seconds to 60 mph (96 km/h) and a maximum speed of 147 mph (236 km/h). The Clubman JCW also comes with unique 18-inch alloy wheels, a JCW-specific sport suspension, as well as a bespoke aerodynamic body kit and new exhaust tips with chrome finish. Inside, there are wraparound seats up front, stainless steel pedals and a new leather-wrapped steering wheel exclusive to the JCW – as well as Dinamica/Carbon Black leather upholstery with red accents.
