2015 MINI John Cooper Works to Make 231-HP

2015 MINI John Cooper Works to Make 231-HP

The 2015 MINI John Cooper Works will share its powerplant with the BMW 225i Active Tourer, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 231 hp.

Considering the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer shares the same platform as the new MINI models, it’s almost no surprise that the German automaker will also share powerplants. Compared to the previous-generation JCW models, the 2015 MINI will increase from 208 hp and will be about 20 percent more power than the Cooper S. Expect the 2015 MINI JCW to accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in less than six seconds and its top speed will likely be around 150 mph.
