The new Mini John Cooper Works Hatch possesses significantly improved standard specification over its predecessor,
with a host of driving, technology and safety innovations included in stock form.
Mini Australia General Manager Kai Bruesewitz expressed his excitement at the arrival of the variant, which stands at
the summit of the brand’s product range.
“The new Mini John Cooper Works Hatch provides a flagship model to lead the new Mini line-up, which has recently
seen the arrival of the Mini 5-Door to complement the new Mini 3-Door Hatch,” Bruesewitz said.
Boasting the most powerful engine ever featured in a model hailing from Oxford, the new Mini John Cooper Works Hatch
features the latest generation Mini TwinPower Turbo power unit, producing 170 kW, while generating up to 320 Nm of
The new engine includes exhaust manifold integrated turbo-charging, direct injection, fully variable valve control and
variable camshaft control on the intake and exhaust sides.
The advancements conspire to deliver engine output far in excess of the new Mini John Cooper Works Hatch’s forebearer,
leaving the previous iteration of the performance car in its wake with a 10 per cent boost in power, and 23 per cent
increase in maximum torque.
The substantial uplift reinforces the new Mini John Cooper Works Hatch’ performance credentials, which are further
emphasised by its acceleration figures - 0-100 km/h in 6.3 seconds when paired with the standard manual transmission, or
6.1 seconds when allied to an optional six-speed Steptronic sports transmission.
Newly developed for the latest model generation, the six-speed manual transmission incorporates a gear sensor enabling
active engine speed adaptation, automatically adjusting the engine speed to the rotational speed of the input shaft for
the gear selected, ensuring silky clutch engagement.
The degree of innovation is further pronounced with the six-speed Steptronic sports transmission, prioritising swift
gear shifting while still optimising efficiency.
Fitted with Dynamic Damper Control suspension as standard, including an electronically controlled Sports setting, the
track-inspired and capable small car benefits from a single-joint spring strut front axle, and a multilink rear axle,
providing increased stiffness at reduced weight.
With Dynamic Damper Control, drivers can specify desired driving characteristics to adapt the ride and vehicle
response to their ambitions.
A fixed permanent Sports Suspension setting is also available, providing harder springs and stiffer gas shock
absorbers, maximising road contact, even when driven with intent.
Designed in collaboration with renowned independent manufacturer Brembo, the new Mini John Cooper Works Hatch is
equipped with a high-performance brake system developed exclusively for this model.
Precisely harmonised with the properties of the Mini John Cooper Works, the fixed calliper disc brakes guarantee a
consistently impressive deceleration performance, even when exposed to intensive stress on the race track.
Mitigating against the potential for self-steering, a Torque Steer Compensation function finesses the delivery of
drive through the front wheels, while Dynamic Stability Control, comprising Dynamic traction Control and Electronic
Differential Lock Control supports vehicle agility when tackling bends at speed.
The new Mini John Cooper Works Hatch’ superiority over its predecessor isn’t exclusively restricted to performance,
with significantly enhanced standard specification providing improved value.
Two-tone, 18-inch John Cooper Works Cup spoke wheels provide visual cues of the new vehicle’s racing intentions and
sporting heritage, as Chili Red and Rebel Green make their debut on the Hatch.
Model specific sports seats with Dinamica and Cloth upholstery characterise the interior which is accented by a black
chequered trim in standard specification.
Technological and safety innovations also come to the fore with reversing camera, Head Up Display, featuring model
specific content, including gear indicator, rev display and shift lights, Park Assist with front and rear Park Distance
Control, DAB+ tuner and Professional Navigation included across the range.
The features of the Mini navigation system Professional include an 8.8-inch version of the on-board computer and the
Mini Touch Controller with touch-sensitive surface.
LED headlights, extended Bluetooth with armrest, and Mini Driving Modes, which can influence the characteristic curves
of the accelerator, steering and engine acoustics in MID, SPORT and GREEN modes, round out the standard options.
All current Mini vehicles have a service scheduling system called Condition Based Service (CBS) which identifies the
condition of a vehicle based on actual use, realising the full potential of a vehicle and minimising costs.
Under the CBS system, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which the vehicle is
used including mileage, time elapsed since the last service, fuel consumption and how the vehicle is driven. The
information captured is used to determine the vehicle’s maintenance requirements, indentifying that either an annual
vehicle inspection or an oil service is due.
In addition, Mini service and selected maintenance costs can now be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with
Mini TLC. This so called TLC offers two packages; Mini TLC Basic Service Inclusive Basic provides scheduled servicing
cover, while Mini TLC Plus combines scheduled servicing and selected maintenance items. For $980, the Mini TLC Basic
package takes care of scheduled servicing costs for five years or 70,000 kms, whichever comes first. The Mini TLC plan
provides a long-term solution enabling cover to be extended and transferred to future vehicles owners before expiry.
