If anyone ever questions why you drive a MINI, or if you can drive a MINI in the winter—then they’ve clearly never driven a MINI, period. While a MINI is smaller than the average, its performance is larger than life. All that torque and all that weight (or lack thereof), not to mention its unique suspension, make for a vehicle with no peers when it comes to handling. But what happens when the road conditions are less than ideal? Well, MINI drivers go all-in with MINI’s ALL4 All-Wheel Drive.
Available on the MINI Countryman and MINI Clubman, MINI’s ALL4 All-Wheel Drive system ensures that your MINI retains the phenomenal handling they’re known for. Tackle the off-road in your ALL4 equipped MINI, also featuring MINI’s Dynamic Stability Control—a state-of-the-art system that is constantly monitoring the terrain to calculate and distribute the proper amount of power and traction per wheel. This means that whether you’re experiencing inclement weather, or just a lack of pavement altogether, you’re MINI’s performance will be as reliable as it is on dry pavement. Speaking of dry pavement, MINI’s ALL4 isn’t only effective in wet conditions. The ALL4 system enhances acceleration by transferring power to your wheels more efficiently, and dynamically shifting power amongst the wheels when you’re taking turns. Probably part of the reason why the ALL4 Clubman and Countryman go 0 to 100 in less than ten seconds. Name a road condition, and a MINI with ALL4 has it beat.
MINI’s ALL4 AWD system is yet another example of MINI’s sterling reputation when it comes to performance. ALL4 just makes your MINI more fun to drive year-round, winter included. So the next time someone asks you, “How can you drive that thing in the winter?,” you can just smirk before pulling off gracefully. And quickly. Always quickly in the MINI.
