The John Cooper Works (JCW) is the top end of the Clubman variants. It is powered by a 2.0 litre, 4-cylinder twin turbo engine producing a peak output of 228 hp and peak torque of 258 ft-lb. That is more than enough power to propel this light and nimble automobile from 0-60 mph in just 6.0 seconds, and give it a top speed of 147 mph.

The JCW’s high-performance tuning makes it a track-ready weapon. An optional 8-speed sport automatic transmission and three distinct driving modes give the driver the flexibility and choice not offered by many wagons. This car is designed for a responsive feel. ‘Sport’ mode tightens the steering and adjusts the car’s throttle profile for an aggressive drive.

The JCW’s sport-tuned suspension provides precise motoring and gives the car a tight, go-kart feel. F-1 style, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters let drivers manually flick through the automatic transmission for maximum performance. US retail prices start from $35,100.
