MINI Malaysia has introduced the new Countryman JCW (John Cooper Works) Design Edition, in time of the upcoming Lunar new year festivities. The new limited edition MINI Countryman is created in inspiration from MINI’s successful track record in adventurous driving, exuding an aggressive presence ready for adventure but at the same time, a perfect compact premium sports activity vehicle with style for everyday use.

The John Cooper Works Aerodynamic Kit lends the new MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition a powerful, striking appearance, a visual reflection of the John Cooper Works sporting heritage. The full kit which includes front splitter, side skirts, side scuttles, rear diffuser and door sill makes the car look even more sporty and muscular than usual. The MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition is also dressed with John Cooper Works Sport Stripes which run parallel from the front to back and on the sides of the car, giving the MINI a more aggressive look and stance.

Additionally, the new MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition is the only MINI to offer the new interchangeable LED door projectors. This makes for a special experience when getting into and out of the car wherein as soon as the doors are opened, a graphic is projected onto the ground. In addition to the MINI logo, this also comes with a Union Jack design and a JCW design.

Alongside the striking appearance of the MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition is the unrivalled Go-Kart driving dynamics, which is delivered powerful 190 hp engine. Hitting 100 km/h from a standstill in just 7.8 seconds and at a top speed of 212 km/h, the new MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition also produces an impressive 240 Nm to 260Nm with its Overboost Function.

Inside, the MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition boasts a selection of new design and functional elements. This includes the MINI Visual Boost with a 6.5-inch high-resolution color LCD screen. The car is steered from a Sports Leather steering wheel with Paddle Shifters as the driver and passengers are seated in sports seats with Leather Gravity Carbon Black upholstery. The interior surface which is dressed in Piano Black also features chrome elements and just like all the other MINIs, this car comes with automatic air-conditioning.

With Park Distance Control, entering or leaving the tightest parking space becomes much easier while driving this car. Another feature in this car would be the extra helpings of fun urban driving that can be summoned with a touch of the Sport Button, which tweaks the engine’s responses and the power assistance provided by the steering.

The versatile character of the MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition is further emphasized with a boot space of 350 liters, which can be extended to 1,170 liters when seats are folded down.
