From July 2013 the Mini Countryman and the Mini Paceman will offer wider range of customisation options. The new John Cooper Works Exterior Package is available for all engine and drivetrain variants of the Countryman and Paceman models. It comprises sport suspension settings, 18-inch light alloy wheels in Twin Spoke Black Burnished Design and – as an addition for the model variants Mini Cooper S and Mini Cooper SD – the John Cooper Works Aerodynamics Kit, consisting of a front apron with integrated air ducts for brake cooling, model-specific side sills and a rear bumper with diffuser. In addition to bonnet strips in black or white, the Dark Style design package also emphasises the defiantly sporty character of those models fitted with the John Cooper Works Exterior Package. It comprises exterior mirror caps and turn indicator surrounds in Black Checkered, anthracite-coloured roof rails and – as an additional feature in the Mini Countryman – radiator grille ribs in anthracite.
Inside the car the John Cooper Works Interior Package includes sports seats Diagonal Track fabric in John Cooper Works Carbon Black, the John Cooper Works leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, Sport Button, Dynamic Traction Control, John Cooper Works door sill finishers and an anthracite-coloured roof liner.
The John Cooper Works Chili Package comprises all the elements of the John Cooper Works Exterior Package and the John Cooper Works Interior Package along with the following additional options: fog lamps, rain sensor, automatic air conditioning, on-board computer, lighting package, storage package, height adjustment for the passenger seat and velour floor mats. Another special feature of the John Cooper Works Chili Package is the sports seat finish in the Parallel Lines Light Tobacco fabric/leather combination for the Countryman, and the Hot Cross Carbon Black fabric/leather combination for the Paceman. The package is also supplemented with xenon headlights in the Mini Cooper S and Cooper SD models.
In combination with the John Cooper Works Exterior Package or the John Cooper Works Chili Package, the Countryman and Paceman are now also available in Chili Red, which was previously reserved exclusively for the John Cooper Works Countryman and John Cooper Works Paceman models.
