2019 MINI John Cooper Works Review

MINI John Cooper Works family lineup

As a standout in the classic MINI Cooper lineup, the 2019 MINI John Cooper Works has a potent engine, agile handling, a stylish cabin, and a long list of exciting technology features. Drivers in the Manhattan, Queens, and Bronx areas can learn more about this vehicle’s features and options with our comprehensive 2019 MINI John Cooper Works Review.


The John Cooper Works is equipped with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Standardly, this will come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, though you also have the option for a 6-speed Sport Automatic transmission with shift paddles. With the latter option, you’ll receive ample passing power and a 0–60 MPH acceleration rate of 5.9 seconds. Additionally, while front-wheel drive is standard, you can also opt for ALL4 all-wheel drive.

Regardless of the model, the John Cooper Works offers an engaging drive along with responsive steering and strong brakes. It exhibits minimal body roll through turns and stays composed on winding roads. Despite its sporty ride, the suspension of the MINI John Cooper Works keeps the ride smooth and comfortable for passengers.


In both the convertible and 2-door versions of the 2019 MINI John Cooper Works, four people can sit comfortably across two rows of synthetic leather seats. The front seats offer plenty of support and head- and legroom for adult passengers. Plus, leather upholstery and heated front seats are optional for more luxury, adding to the overall high-end feel of the cabin.

Cargo capacity in the John Cooper Works depends on the body style you choose. The convertible trunk offers 5.7 cubic feet of room, while the Hardtop 2-Door model features 8.7 cubic feet of cargo room and a maximum of 34 cubic feet. In the convertible, you can fit shopping bags and small luggage, but the Hardtop 2-Door model can fit larger items like golf bags or a weekend’s worth of luggage.


The 2019 MINI John Cooper Works is packed with value at all trim levels. Standard features include a 6.5-inch display, Bluetooth®, a USB port, and a 6-speaker stereo. From there, you can add a 12-speaker Harman Kardon® Sound System, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, Wireless Charging, an 8.8-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone integration. Standalone features and options packages can be customized throughout the lineup as well, making it easy to tailor the vehicle to your needs.

Safety features for the MINI John Cooper Works include a Rear Camera, automatic headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and Parking Sensors. Adaptive Cruise Control, a MINI Head-Up Display, and additional parking aids are also available. The additional awareness and visibility provided by these features will help during highway drives, in crowded traffic situations, and in tight parking lots, helping you to avoid a potential collision.
