From July 2013, the ALL4 all-wheel drive models will be available on the MINI Countryman and MINI Paceman. The new MINI models come as standard with a manual six-speed transmission and will also be supplied on request with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The ALL4 system is based on a electromagnetic centre differential and continuously distributes the driving force between the front axle and the rear axle. Its electronic control system is merged straight into the DSC control unit (Dynamic Stability Control). This allows the system to transmit the torque of the engine in a quick and precise manner.
MINI Cooper Countryman ALL4 and MINI Cooper Paceman ALL4 will be equipped with the 1.6-liter engine which creates 122 hp and 190 Nm of torque.
In terms of performance the MINI Countryman accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 11.9 seconds (11.7 seconds with automatic transmission) and a top speed of 184 km / h (184 km / h with automatic transmission). The average consumption is about 6.9 l/100km with 160 g / km of CO2.
The MINI Paceman instead accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 11.8 seconds (11.6 seconds with automatic transmission) and touches 185 km / h (183 with automatic transmission). The consumption are identical to those of the MINI Countryman.
Expected prices are around $29300 for the Countryman Cooper ALL4 and $30900 for the Paceman Cooper ALL4.
