Both top models of the British premium brand for the small car segment deliver their thrilling performance not only with exemplary efficiency, but also with further improved emissions behaviour. The MINI John Cooper Works with 8-speed Steptronic transmission and the MINI John Cooper Works Convertible with 6-speed gearbox will be equipped as standard with petrol engine particulate filter to reduce particulate emissions from March 2019. The petrol engine particulate filter is now an integral component of the exhaust emissions purification technology on all petrol engine models of the MINI brand in the small car segment, from March 2019.
The petrol engine particulate filter is integrated into the standard sports exhaust emissions system to ensure that the dynamic power delivery of the 2.0 litre, 170 kW/231 hp 4-cylinder engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo technology generates a distinctively sporty sound while ensuring exemplary exhaust emissions behaviour. Both John Cooper Works models now meet the especially stringent Euro 6d TEMP emissions standard. The introduction of the latest exhaust emissions reduction technology has no influence on the exemplary fuel consumption and CO2 values of both top athletes.
With the standard 6-speed manual gearbox, the MINI John Cooper Works accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 6.3 seconds and takes a mere 5.6 seconds to go from 80 to 120 km.
