The 2017 MINI Countryman JCW was at the Ring earlier this week undergoing final suspension calibration and Motor1 caught it all on video. The new JCW Countryman will be equipped All4 and the same 231 hp JCW engine found in the F56 and F57 MINI JCWs (according to sources earlier this year). There are however a few things we don’t know. Chiefly if MINI will be including the dual clutch transmission that’s rumored to hit the MINI range for toe F56 LCI next fall.

We expect the Countryman JCW to debut next spring as a halo product for the brand.
