This Thatcham review of the F56 states four wheel drive as on option. I don't think so!
Are there any rumors of an upcoming AWD F56? I think MINI would do well with such a vehicle in some markets.

Perhaps the upcoming F55 4-door will offer AWD?

I think an AWD F56 would be terrific, especially here in the Northeast US where we have harsh winters. Subarus and Audis are all over the place and the Mini does not have a great reputation for winter traction. Unfortunately I doubt that it would ever happen - too much technology to squeeze into a "mini" body.

I'd love an AWD F5x. I think I would, anyway.

As for squeezing the tech into a "mini" body, look at the Audi A1 quattro and the S1, both of which have a smaller wheelbase than the F56.

As I've read over the past few months at various sites, the F56, as well as the 4 door F55 due out this fall, will NOT be available as an AWD. But the new F54 Clubman due out the 2nd half of next year WILL have AWD as an option.
