Mini's fastest-ever production car, the new Clubman JCW, will touch down in Australia before the end of 2019, priced from $57,900 before on-road costs.
Powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, the Clubman JCW now makes 225kW and 450Nm, an increase of 55kW over the outgoing model. The engine is shared with the BMW X2 M35i, as is the eight-speed automatic transmission.
There's also a mechanical front differential to help put the power down.
All that grunt is put to the road through Mini's ALL4 all-wheel drive system, good for a 4.9 second run to 100km/h in the Clubman and a 5.1 second sprint in the larger, heavier Countryman.
Two trim levels will be offered: the Clubman Pure ($57,900 before on-road costs) and the regular Clubman JCW ($62,900 before on-roads). Mini isn't offering the Countryman in a 'Pure' trim, pricing the JCW from $65,900 before on-road costs.
The Pure will get 'professional navigation' with an 8.8-inch infotainment display, 18-inch alloy wheels with adaptive suspension, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, sports seats trimmed in leather and 'dinamica', a blacked-out grille and light surrounds, and piano black interior trim.
Jumping to the regular JCW brings bigger wheels, perforated leather seats, a head-up display, a 12-speaker audio system, and heated, electric front seats. The Clubman rides on an adaptive suspension, and the Countryman gets a fixed 'sports suspension'.
Along with the revised Clubman and Countryman JCW range, there's an updated Clubman Cooper S. Power comes from a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine outputting 141kW and 280Nm, mated with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Compared to the outgoing car, it's gained an 8.8-inch infotainment screen as standard, piano black interior trim, black roof rails, and new LED lighting at both ends. It's priced from $45,900 before on-roads.
