MINI’s Clubman ALL4 has just been launched. The car is the brand’s first Clubman all-wheel-drive model and marks the carmaker’s further advance into the premium compact segment as well, as the first ALL4 model to be built at MINI Plant Oxford.

The car comes with a redeveloped all-wheel-drive system adding sportier handling and improved versatility to the original Clubman. The electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system distributes drive torque between the front and the rear axles depending on specific road conditions. It was designed to be compact and light-weight, resulting in a slight increase in fuel consumption and exhaust emissions compared to the front-wheel-drive models.

The newest addition to MINI’s lineup is available in two configurations, the MINI Cooper S Clubman ALL4 and the MINI Copper SD Clubman ALL4.

The MINI Cooper S Clubman ALL4 is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine featuring MINI’s TwinPower Turbo Technology, linked to a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, or optionally to an 8-speed Steptronic gearbox.

Thanks to its 192 horsepower, the car sprints from a standstill to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 7 seconds, with the 6-speed manual transmission, and in 6.9 seconds with the 8-speed Steptronic gearbox. The top speed is 142 mph (228 km/h) in both cases. With the manual transmission, the car costs €31,476 in Germany, and with an automatic gearbox, €33,667.

The new MINI Cooper SD Clubman ALL4 features the most powerful diesel engine ever installed in a MINI, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with variable turbine geometry and Common Rail direct injection. Compared to the other configuration, the 8-speed Steptronic transmission comes standard in the SD, enabling the car to launch from 0 to 62 mph in just 7.2 seconds, with a top speed of 138 mph (222 km/h). Those who want to own the new SD Clubman ALL4 will have to pay no less than €35,521.

Production of the MINI Clubman ALL4 has already started, with first deliveries expected in April 2016.

here is some more info for NA

The new system has a “power take-off bevel gear on the front axle differential, a dual-section propeller shaft, and a rear axle differential with an electrohydraulically controlled hang-on clutch.” This tech speech is as geek as it is, but the company claims its new all-wheel drive system will be able to communicate and work diligently together with the Dynamic Stability Control system in order to know fast what wheels need the most torque. So, the new ALL4 AWD system should not only improve traction but also deliver higher levels of handling during acceleration and cornering.

The US market will have two engine versions for the new Clubman ALL4 – the base comes with the 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder churning out 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. The latter version will deliver a 0-60 miles per hour time of 9.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 125 mph. The higher-specked S version comes with the 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder mil churning out 189 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque – this one has the same transmission features and will do the run in 6.6 seconds on its way to the top speed of 140 mph.

I'm curious what the differences are between the old ALL4 system and the new ALL4 system.

Hurray under 27k starting must have one to compete with them others 4x4 snoobs here in Arizona.:D

Update: Mini has just revealed US pricing. The Mini Cooper Clubman All4 will start at $26,750, and the Cooper S Clubman All4 will start at $30,300. Both prices include destination.

By now, you're surely familiar with the joke about how cars from Mini are no longer... well, mini. We won't repeat it here (oops, too late), except to say that the first vehicle that really pushed Mini's historic boundaries was the original Clubman in 2008. That machine featured a stretched wheelbase, an extra door on one side and an unconventional barn-door-style rear opening. For 2016, the Clubman recipe was revised with an even longer wheelbase and more conventional side doors, though still with the split rear hatch. Now, finally, the Mini Clubman is available with all-wheel drive.

As you would expect from Mini, the new Clubman carries All4 branding. A propellor shaft sprouts from the front differential, and a new rear diff is added with an electrohydraulic clutch to send power to the rear wheels when needed. Mini promises that its All4 system will not only be a boon in inclement weather, but will also aid high-speed handling. We look forward to putting those claims to the test.

Drivetrain options are borrowed from the standard front-wheel-drive Clubman range. A 134-horsepower three-cylinder comes in base Clubman models, and a 2.0-liter mill with 189-hp powers upgraded Clubman S models. An eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters and launch control is optional, though shift-yourself purists will surely opt for the standard six-speed manual. Mini says the Clubman S All4 can record a 0-60 time of 6.6 seconds with the automatic, or 6.7 with the manual. That's a couple tenths quicker than the front-drive Clubman S.

Does the extra $3k bring anything other than AWD? If some winter package or something was also included, it would be easier to stomach.

+$1800 over the Cooper/Cooper S in the US. Options will be the same, packages will the same, the only difference is AWD and badging. The Cooper ALL4 will also have the 8-speed auto instead of the 6-speed if you decide to get an automatic over the manual 6-speed.

Yea, you are right. That is more in line with what I hoped. We are leaning 6MT.
