The New MINI John Cooper Works Simply the best
NEW MINI, NEW TECHNOLOGY …
All MINI petrol engine models as John Cooper Works will be fitted with a particulate filter to meet the requirements of the Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard. Petrol engine variants of the MINI Countryman will be with 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch optimized with TwinPower Turbo Technology. Standard trim is extended to include automatic driving lights control.
This demonstrates how MINI John Cooper Works consistently continues to pursue the optimization of emissions in its current models.
Fast gear changes and a high level of internal efficiency are the properties of the 7-speed Steptronic transmission. The use of two clutches when changing gear enables particularly sporty acceleration without torque interrupt. In addition to enhanced driving fun, the design principle adapted from motor racing also has all the comfort features of an automatic transmission. It ensures harmonious and acoustically barely perceptible changes in drive position, free of load change reactions in the engine – not just when sprinting but also when decelerating. This transmission also enables use of the auto start/stop function and the coasting function to increase efficiency. Furthermore, the transmission control is networked with the navigation system if the vehicle is fitted with one. In this way, navigation data can be used to adapt the choice of gear perfectly to the route. Operation of the transmission is by means of an electronic gear selector switch. This transmits the driver’s instructions by means of electrical impulses to the transmission control.
The MINI models as John Cooper Works in the premium compact segment are fitted with automatic driving lights control as standard. This function ensures needs-oriented activation and deactivation of the headlights and rear lights. It’s depending on the light conditions in the environment of the vehicle. For this purpose, the driving light switch can be turned to an additional position. It is marked by a graphic symbol containing the letter “A”. When using the automatic driving lights system, the lights are not only activated at night but also when dusk is falling. Very helpful when visibility is poor due to the weather conditions, as well as when passing through tunnels or in dark multi-storey car parks.
