Mini will soon launch an all-electric model, but the Cooper of the future will be very different. Mini will launch an all-electric cooper made in China by the British company. However, it will continue to offer a diesel-powered hatchback built in Oxford, U.K. Our spy photographers captured it again during hot weather testing in Southern Europe.
2024 Mini Cooper JCW Review
Mini stated that the new ICE-powered Cooper models would be more like a facelift than a new model. The JCW will still be available with the same engine as the existing model. This is a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with a 2.0-liter turbocharged that produces 302 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque.
Mini may make minor updates to meet the new emission standards. Mini should sprint from 0-60 mph in the same 5.2 seconds. The top speed should remain in the 165 mph range.
Camouflaged, the entire JCW prototype can be seen. This means that we can expect many updates to the car’s appearance. First, we notice a shorter front overhang. This could be due to the camouflage. The front end will see a significant change.
The new bumper, grille, and headlights will look almost identical to those in future EV models. While the rear appears to have been left unchanged, the side mirrors were given a new shape with integrated indicators and received an updated design. Although the prototype was tested with large exhaust pipes, we expect that the production model will have twin pipes like the current model.
The exterior will not change much, but the interior will see many improvements. The largest change to the interior will be the addition of a large round touchscreen display in its middle.
The smaller display in front will be gone. Redesigned buttons will be added to the model, although most functions can still be controlled using the touchscreen. The area under the large round screen will be the location where the knob switch for automatic models will be located.
When will the Mini Cooper JCW 2024 arrive?
The Mini Cooper JCW will be revealed sometime in 2023. This is just a few months after the standard Cooper version. The sales will start right on time for the model year 2024.
