MINI Driving Modes.
An empty highway, a long tunnel, a stretch of country road. It’s what every driver dreams of. And when the time comes, switch to Sport Mode and sharpen the steering and acceleration for sportier, agile handling. The sound alone will be enough to make the driving dream come true.
8-Speed Steptronic Transmission.
Leading the way, our John Cooper Works models are fitted with an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission for a sportier drive. The extra gears reduce the number of revs at high speed to allow optimal power development, and the Steptronic functionality lets you choose between automatic ease or manual thrill.
The Start/Stop function makes driving more economical, reducing fuel consumption, noise and emissions.
And the gradation of the eight gears reduces the engine's rev interval between shifts, for a more powerful acceleration.
