As eagerly awaited as the JCW version of the MINI Countryman
has been for some, word is now that those who want a bit more grunt in their Countryman will have to wait another year. MINI
is planning a refresh for their JCW engine in preparation for the 2013 model year, and it's logical that they didn't see much point in putting out a JCW with the old engine for just one year. The new engine will, as is the trend, be both more powerful and more efficient.
