Mini Maximizes Traction with ALL4 Expansion Plan

Starting this summer, the standard versions of the Mini Cooper Countryman and the Mini Cooper Paceman will be available with the automaker's ALL4 all-wheel-drive system. For these model lines, to date, ALL4 has been reserved for the turbocharged Cooper S and John Cooper Works variants of the Countryman and Paceman.

Paired with a 122-horsepower, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, the new ALL4 models will accelerate to 60 mph in approximately 11.5 seconds when installed in the Mini Cooper Paceman equipped with the optional automatic transmission, according to Mini. In comparison, a Toyota Prius can accelerate to 60 mph in about 10 seconds.

Mini says the new Cooper Countryman ALL4 and Cooper Paceman ALL4 will go on sale in July of 2013.
