Gas is still alive and kicking in 2025 Mini Countryman John Cooper Works
Mini has previously stated that it will launch an electric Countryman SUV starting in 2025, and the company is still dedicated to offering an all-electric lineup by 2030. Customers may therefore be surprised to hit the start button on the new 2025 Countryman John Cooper Works performance special and hear the vintage sound of pistons whirling and valves pumping as gasoline burns under the hood when it arrives in the United States.
As 2024 draws nearer, a gas-burning version of a new car is unexpected, but not unprecedented. The parent business of Mini, BMW, has a practice of developing both electric and internal combustion engine versions of its cars on the same platform; the i4 and 4 Series, i5 and 5 Series, and i7 and 7 Series all follow this same route.
The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the gas-powered 2025 Countryman John Cooper Works, just like it did with its predecessor. This one has 11 more horsepower but 36 less pounds-feet of torque, with 312 horsepower and 295 pounds-feet of torque. The business hasn’t disclosed the availability of a transmission (the present model has an eight-speed automatic), but all-wheel drive is standard on Minis. The Countryman John Cooper Works, according to Mini, can reach a top speed of 155 mph and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds.
The John Cooper Works, the sportiest model in the Countryman lineup, stands out because to its distinctive front face, black grille, and special head and taillights. The iconic contrasting roof of Mini is offered in a red color to complement the brake calipers and the interior’s black and red accents.
According to Mini, a platoon of 12 ultrasonic sensors and four surround-view cameras, which support a number of active-safety features, guard the Countryman John Cooper Works. This features the Driving Assistant Professional, a partially automated Level 2 driving system that enables the driver to take their hands off the wheel when traveling at speeds under 37 mph. It combines adaptive cruise control with lane-centering steering. Additionally, the technology recognizes pauses in traffic and modifies the SUV’s speed to facilitate lane changes.
Accessibility and Cost
In May 2024, the 2025 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman will go on sale at dealerships. The starting price of the SUV is $47,895 (destination fee included).
