Mini Cooper Countryman ALL4

In case you wanted to have the all-wheel drive system ALL4 in a Mini, but not in the ones that already have them, now you can do it. According to Mini, the ALL4 will be available for the Mini Cooper Countryman and for the Mini Cooper Paceman starting next month. Now, the number of all-wheel drive versions within the Mini model range reaches ten units. You should also know that the new models are fitted with 6-speed manual transmission as standard, but in case what you want is an automatic one, you can get it as optional. The new features, like enhanced traction, driving stability and the permanent all wheel drive system helps the driver stay in control while driving on snow, sand and even slippery surfaces.

The Mini Cooper ALL4 actually has as base an electromagnetic center differential and manages to distribute drive force at continuously variable levels between the front and rear axle. The electronic control system is integrated in the DSC control unit and this way the model is enabled in to direct drive torque fast and precisely to where it can be most effectively turned into propulsion. Under the hood the model hides a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 122 BHP which are being split between the front and the rear wheels.

The engine also generates 160 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.9 seconds and to reach a top speed of 184 km/h. In terms of fuel consumption, you should know the new Mini Countryman ALL4 uses 6.9 liters per 100 km and the CO2 emission level reaches 167 grams per km. these are all details available on the new models for now.
