The all new MINI Countryman is bigger and more expensive than ever. But the technical data tells a story of a car that is much more capable with more performance and surpassingly good range (on EV version). Is it enough? Let’s look at the data.
The first thing that jumped out to us looking at the data is the curb weight. It’s up as we anticipated but (also as we predicted) not as much as you’d think given the size dan equipment increase. For instance the F60 2023 JCW Countryman weighs 3,688 lbs. Compare that to the all new U25 JCW Countryman at 3,825 lbs and you have only a 137 lbs difference. That’s likely due to the various weight savings measures that BMW built into the new FAAR platform including extensive use of aluminum and lighter steel.
Another area that surprised us was that the ICE powered JCW Countryman is not a mild-hybrid. The C has a 155 hp three cylinder coupled with a 19 hp electric engine. That combines to produce 167 hp with 206 lb or torque. The S (which we don’t have all the data on yet) has the same combo making 241 hp. However why does 19 hp and 155 hp not equal more than the 167 hp listed on the Countryman C? We’ll get that answer from MINI soon.
