MINI Reveals the Coupe-Wagon Version, 2016 John Cooper Works Clubman

Waiting for some upgrades? MINI has just got some ones. On Tuesday, the carmaker announced the latest 2016 John Cooper Works Clubman, a wagon version of the previous generation, to appear as an executive car. Pricing has not been published, but the JCW wagon is expected to go for appr.$35,500. If so, it seems like MINI would reduce the executive level vehicles’ pricing.

Well, what would the carmaker like to offer? First of all, it comes to a new level of performance as the new wagon is the torquiest in the lineup. Instead of 236 lb-ft, the torque has been increased to 258 pound-feet of torque. The model is equipped with a standard All4 AWD system and a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine to deliver 228 ponies. So to sum up: some extra power, with a sportier upgraded suspension and improved brake cooling. Accelerating from 0-60mph in just six seconds, the JCW wagon gets a top speed of 147mph. Still and all the weight matters: the new coming wagon weights about 3,500 pounds.

The 2016 John Cooper Works Clubman will get to US dealerships in early December.
