MINI Countryman, Paceman Cooper Versions to Receive ALL4 Transmission

The current MINI line-up includes 8 models that are available with the All4 all-wheel-drive transmission at the moment. Starting with July 2013, there will be 10 such models available, once the Cooper Paceman and Countryman join the club.

Since the All4 system was and still is so popular on the Cooper S versions of these two cars, the management over at MINI decided there might also be a market for the Cooper versions fitted with this option.

As for the gearbox options, the 6-speed manual transmission will come as standard whilst the automatic one will be available as an optional feature. That means that the 122 HP and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) of the 1.6-liter engine will be distributed between the 4-wheels of the car according to the road conditions.

The All4 system uses and electromagnetic centre differential and distributes drive force at variable levels continuously between the front and rear axle. The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) unit intervenes enabling it to transform every bit of power into propulsion.
