MINI has officially unveiled the 2016 MINI Clubman All4. The car looks identical to the standard model but it features a new all-wheel drive system that comes with a power take-off bevel gear on the front axle differential, a dual-section propeller shaft, and a rear axle differential with an electro hydraulically controlled hang-on clutch.
The new all-wheel drive system works in combination with the Dynamic Stability Control system and as a result the torque goes to the wheels when it need it most. According to MINI the new All4 system will improve traction and agility during acceleration and cornering.
The new 2016 MINI Clubman All4 will be available in two different versions. The 2016 MINI Cooper S Clubman All4 uses 2.0 liter engine rated at 192 HP while the 2016 Cooper SD Clubman All4 will feature a 2.0 diesel unit rated at 190 horsepower. In standard, the transmission is assured by a six speed manual gearbox but on the option list you can find an eight speed Steptronic.Source: MINI
