MINI recently refurbished its three- and five-door hatchbacks, and more recently the convertible and electric Mini Electric have been updated. The company has given a little attention to the updated version of the John Cooper Works, and today it’s the turn of the Mini John Cooper Works Cabrio.

The updated compact Mini range recently received a new front fascia modeled after the three-door John Cooper Works in a sportier form, which is now also a scaled-down version of this sporty Mini. The Mini John Cooper Works Convertible in Canary Yellow has a new front end with a redesigned grille with a thicker frame and a completely redesigned bumper with hexagonal air intakes. Bright paint is typical for the open version of the JCW.

The Mini also features innovative technology at the rear of the John Cooper Works Cabrio. The sports convertible has a more pronounced rear apron with an integrated diffuser, in which the twin tailpipes again take center stage. Mini brings to the open JCW, among other things, a new lightweight metal. The innovations are also known: the Mini John Cooper Works Cabrio receives an updated infotainment system with an 8.8-inch display. The Mini electric roof can be opened or closed in 18 seconds at speeds up to 30 km / h.

Despite being completely redesigned before the JCW, the summer car’s engine remains unchanged. Thus, a four-cylinder 2.0 engine with 231 hp remains under the hood. and 320 Nm, which is mainly associated with a 6-speed manual transmission. This “filling” allows the John Cooper Works Cabrio to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.6 seconds. As an option, the model is available 8-speed automatic transmission Steptronic Sport, with which the convertible will reach the first “hundred” in 6.5 seconds.

In comparison, the closed version of the Mini John Cooper Works is slightly faster: with a manual transmission, this model accelerates to 100 km / h in 6.3 seconds, while the version with an automatic transmission covers the same distance in 6.1 seconds.
