MotoringFile Sections: F56 Hatch, JCW Jan 15th, 2015 51 Comments


The 2015 MINI JCW is here and it’s exactly what we at MF have hoped for since the brand’s inception.

That’s a question we won’t have an answer to until we get behind the wheel.

Priced just hundreds of dollars more than its R56 predecessor (albeit with 23 more horsepower), the F56 JCW was officially introduced today at NAIAS.
