No power boost for the premium hot hatch.
In January this year, Mini unveiled its updated model range for the 2022 model year. The John Cooper Works version was briefly mentioned, and today the British automaker has released more details about the refreshed premium hot hatch. Accompanying the press release is the comprehensive gallery with almost 60 photos attached below.
Starting with the exterior, the front end continues to combine cuteness with aggressiveness thanks to the LED round headlights and the hexagonal radiator grille. Larger air openings in the bumper create a slightly more dynamic look, while also ensuring optimum temperature control of the powertrain and brakes at the same time. The little model-specific side scuttles on the front side panels have also been redesigned.
Probably the biggest novelty inside the cabin is the updated infotainment system, which now runs a new software with prettier graphics. For the first time, the JCW benefits from the so-called Live Widgets, which can be selected by means of a swiping motion on the touch display. There are also a number of updated surfaces and a few new ambient lighting options. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
