On paper, the JCW upgrade from the S is nothing to scoff at. The S has a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that makes 189 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 207 lb-ft of torque at 1250 rpm. The JCW is a beefier cut, with 228 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque starting at 1450 rpm. Unfortunately, the real-world performance improvement versus the Cooper S All4 is modest.

What’s New for 2018?

The Clubman JCW carries the same turbo four-cylinder, two transmission options, and standard all-wheel drive for 2018. We only wish the pricier JCW version could prove its worth versus the cheaper Clubman S.

For 2018, the Clubman JCW has the same powertrains as the previous model year. For details about the engines and transmissions of the 2017 Mini Cooper Clubman JCW, see our in-depth review.
