MINI has announced an update for its “charged” model John Cooper Works in the body of a convertible and a hatchback. Starting in March of next year, the company is going to update the equipment of the models in order to meet the Euro 6d-TEMP eco-standard.

MINI is an integral part of the European automotive market. And despite a slight drop in sales (about 2% in the first nine months of 2018), the model range, as well as its equipment, will be actively updated. The first update for the MINI will be the release of a more environmentally friendly modification for the convertible and hatchback Mini John Cooper Works in the spring of 2019.

So, in March there will be a version with the environmental standard Euro 6d-TEMP. To do this, the company modifies the exhaust system, which will receive a particulate filter. However, the company made every effort that the power of the car, and even the exhaust sound remained unchanged. The former two-liter turbo engine develops and will develop up to 230 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque.

In addition, the company announced the release of a new package of visual options, which will include an updated grille with black glossy bezels, LED optics, as well as additional decorative elements with a black glossy finish.

“The particulate filter is now an integral component of exhaust gas cleaning technology on all MINI gasoline engines,” the company said.
