MINI CLUBMAN ALL4 AND JOHN COOPER WORKS CONVERTIBLE DEBUT AT NYIAS
SUPREME DRIVING FUN IN EVERY SITUATION
The addition of the ALL4 all-wheel drive variant once again demonstrates how the reinvented new MINI Clubman offers exceptional versatility. It combines all the advantages of an all-wheel drive system – traction, directional stability and driving – with classic MINI go-kart handling.
The ALL4 system can shift power from the front to the rear wheels in just a quarter of a second. It is also lighter and more compact than previous all-wheel drive platforms for better vehicle handling, fuel efficiency and interior space.
The MINI Clubman ALL4 now offers the highest level of everyday practicality with the addition of all-wheel drive capabilities, making it the ideal primary car in the household.
TOP PERFORMANCE TO OPEN-TOP DRIVING
As the first open-top MINI powered by BMW Group engine technology, the new MINI Convertible is a premium four-seater soft-top convertible that is both practical and customizable for unlimited motoring fun. And when passion for motor racing is the driving force and intense open-air pleasure the goal, the new MINI John Cooper Works Convertible takes the ideal line from the word go.
Featuring the most powerful engine in the British brand’s portfolio with 228 hp, the second John Cooper Works model of the latest generation combines engine and suspension technology optimized for use on the race track with the extensively refined qualities of the new MINI Convertible. This lends even greater fascination to the vehicle concept of an open-top four-seater with outstandingly sporty performance properties that is still unique in the small car segment.
Like all other MINI models in the product portfolio, the new MINI John Cooper Works Convertible is made for individualization, setting the standard in the premium convertible market.
