The John Cooper Works (JCW) variant of the MINI Countryman had its world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, packing a 1.6L, turbo-four with 211-hp.

And now the MINI JCW Countryman has been placed into the British automaker’s ad-churning machine, spitting out an “Expect the Unexpected” video that showcases the Countryman’s versatility as it tears through desert and snow. Watching the JWC Countryman in action through contrasting weather conditions proves that it won’t be a one-trick pony with its ALL4 all-wheel drive system.

The JCW Countryman can have either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, 18- or 19-inch wheels while sporting special front and rear bumpers.

The JCW Countryman will hit the European market in the first half of this year and will approach American shores after the summer. Pricing on the sporty model still hasn’t been announced, but we expect it to be in the mid-$30,000 range.
