The 2020 Mini Clubman John Cooper Works and the 2020 Mini Countryman John Cooper Works will go on sale soon. Notable revisions can be seen on the JCW Clubman, which gets new LED taillights following a Union Jack design like the rest of the facelifted Clubman range.

Red racing stripes and accents on the grille adds to the car's sporty persona.

A new exhaust system has been added for aural drama.

On the equipment side of things, both JCW models here come with 18-inch John Cooper Works light metal wheels in Black Grip Spoke design by default, with the option of other designs in 18 and 19 inch sizes.

CarAdvice has contacted Mini's local arm regarding availability and timing of the new JCW Clubman and Countryman models for Australia, and is awaiting a response.

Both performance variants have been equipped with the firm's latest generation four-cylinder petrol engine featuring TwinPower turbo technology.

There's even a dedicated external transmission oil cooler for the eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, which is now the only gearbox available for these JCW models - the previously available six-speed manual has been omitted (boo). That's that's 55 kW and 100 N.m more than the previous 2,0-litre unit. To add context, the Clubman John Cooper Works is a full second and a half quicker to 60 miles per hour than its predecessor thanks in part to an engine that offers 73 extra horsepower. The top speed also climbs to an electronically limited 155 miles per hour (250 km/h).

According to Mini, the Countryman returns a combined fuel consumption figure of 7,3 L/100 km and The Clubman a slightly less economical 7,4 L/100 km.
