MINI John Cooper Works models have a proud tradition of combining the best of MINI with the soul of a race car. From March 2019 this irresistible combination of performance, handling prowess and aerodynamic design will benefit an enhanced standard equipment offering in the UK market, whilst meeting strict Euro 6d-TEMP emission standards.

The MINI John Cooper Works Hatch (consumption: 40.9 to 40.9 mpg with a 6-speed manual transmission, from 45.6 to 46.3 mpg with 8-speed Steptronic transmission; CO2 emissions combined: 158 - 157 g / km with a 6-speed manual transmission, 142 - 140 g / km with 8-speed Steptronic transmission) and the MINI John Cooper Works Convertible (consumption: 39.8 to 40.4 mpg with 6- manual transmission, from 43.5 to 44.1 mpg with 8-speed Steptronic transmission; CO2 emissions combined: 162-161 g / km with a 6-speed manual transmission, 148-145 g / km with 8-speed Steptronic transmission) are both equipped with the brand’s potent 2.0-litre 231 hp four-cylinder engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo technology.

Fitted with the standard 6-speed manual gearbox, the MINI John Cooper Works Hatch accelerates from zero to 62 mph in just 6.3 seconds. The MINI John Cooper Works Convertible accelerates from a standstill in 6.6 seconds. An 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission is an option on both John Cooper Works models.

MINI John Cooper Works Hatch and MINI John Cooper Works Convertible offer distinct styling thanks to a number of upgrades over and above other models in the range. Standard specification includes Sport suspension with 17-inch John Cooper Works alloy wheels, sports braking system and John Cooper Works Aerodynamic Kit.

MINI has further enhanced it’s offering from March 2019 for UK customers, with John Cooper Works Hatch and Convertible also benefiting from Piano Black exterior and interior trim, Dinamica Leather John Cooper Works Bucket Seats and 17” Track Spoke Alloy Wheels in Black as part of the standard specification.

As with every MINI Hatch and Convertible model on sale in the UK, John Cooper Works models also enjoy standard-fit front and rear LED lights, automatic headlights with rain sensors, MINI Excitement Pack including ambient interior lighting, exterior MINI Logo projection and much more.

Both models will be equipped with petrol particulate filters from March 2019 production. With this, all of MINI’s petrol models now feature particulate filters as part of their exhaust technology, therefore reducing particulate matter emissions across the MINI range. The petrol particulate filter is integrated into the standard sports exhaust system, ensuring both models enjoy a characteristic sound inside and outside the vehicle whilst meeting the strict Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard. The introduction of the latest pollutant reduction technology does not adversely affect the fuel economy or CO2 emissions of these models.

The MINI John Cooper Works Hatch and MINI John Cooper Works Convertible are available to order at MINI retailers nationwide from 18th January 2019.


Fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption are determined in the currently valid version of the measuring methods Regulation (EU) 2007/715. The figures relate to a vehicle in basic equipment in Germany, the adjusted ranges account for differences in the selected wheel and tire sizes and optional special equipment and can change during the configuration.

The figures are calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle and calculated back to the comparability of the NEDC. In these vehicles, other than those specified herein may apply to the design of taxes and other vehicle-related charges (also) leave on CO2 emissions.

Further information on official fuel consumption and official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger vehicles from the guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption of new passenger cars' taken can be provided at all points of sale, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT) Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, and is available free of charge under

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
