Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Sales and Marketing. Celebrating its world premiere in Geneva is the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman, the first performance athlete in the brand's line-up to combine John Cooper Works racing thrills with ALL4 all-wheel drive. The MINI John Cooper Works Countryman is powered by a newly developed four-cylinder engine boasting a twin-scroll turbocharger, petrol direct injection and variable valve control, and producing 160 kW/218 hp. It comes as standard with an aerodynamic kit, lowered sports suspension, 18-inch light-alloy wheels and exclusive design features. This is the first John Cooper Works model to also offer a six-speed automaticgearbox as an option. Another world premiere from MINI shifts attention to an all-new concept designed to win over new target groups. The MINI Clubvan Concept embodies the vision of a premium small car with increased transportation capacity for business and leisure use. It differs most prominently from the MINI Clubman, on which it is based, with its two-seat layout, large and flat load compartment, and opaque rear side windows. Being on time is important. But just as important is making sure all of your gear arrives with you. For those with a lot to move about, MINI has an answer. Making its world premiere: the MINI Clubvan Concept. It has two seats; two compartments; and it's twice as much fun as any transport vehicle out there!
