The Countryman is the first JCW to have an automatic gearbox option. Its 0-60mph dash is identical to the manual’s and its top speed 1mph less.

However, the auto has 35.3mpg fuel economy to the manual’s 39.2mpg and it emits 20g/km more CO2 at 187g/km.

Sales start in September with a price of £27,800, which is a £5k premium over the Countryman Cooper S.
