The MINI ALL4 Explained

What is MINI ALL4?

If you asked BMW, they’d tell you that the MINI ALL4 is all about conquering every road and every season. As such, you can prepare for unparalleled control and agility on any terrain with the MINI Countryman equipped with ALL4 all-wheel drive. Same goes for the new MINI Clubman. 

MINI designed the All4 all-wheel drive system to ensure that even wet weather won't dampen the owner’s traveling or transportation plans. 

Upon detecting loss of traction on slippery surfaces, this system intelligently redistributes power between the front and rear axles, maximizing control and keeping you on course. Paired with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, it provides optimal handling in all conditions. 

The ALL4 comes bundled with other safety systems beyond the drivetrain. They include heated side mirrors plus windshield washer jets, which are handy winter-ready features that improve visibility when it matters most. 

Others include 3-stage heated seats, cornering brake control (optimizes brake effects during high-speed cornering), and electronic brakeforce distribution, designed to minimize the risk of oversteering and understeering, especially on snowy hills and tight turns. 

These features all come standard on ALL4-equipped MINI models like the new Countryman S.

“The MINI Countryman S ALL4 impresses with driving fun on any terrain. Our customers benefit from the variability of a crossover with a robust off-road character. The MINI Countryman is both agile and spirited as well as safe and comfortable on longer distances,” says Stefanie Wurst, head of MINI. 

This car introduces a bespoke motorsport aesthetic, complete with distinctive diffusers both front and rear. Stepping into the limelight, the vibrant Chili Red hue harmonizes with the iconic contrasting roof and sleek high-gloss jet-black side mirrors, casting an aura of strength over the body. 

With an understated nod to its racing lineage, the MINI LED headlights, now donning the selected JCW signature, illuminate with only two horizontal stripes as daytime running lights, echoing the brand's minimalist design ethos. 

Iconic Details, Elevated Presence

Performance Redefined

Beneath the hood, the robust 2.0-liter twin-power turbo engine commands attention, unleashing a potent output of 218 horsepower (160 kW) and a peak torque of 266 lb-ft. 

Augmenting the powerplant, a 48V mild hybrid engine provides an extra boost of 19 hp (14 kW) in the low-speed range, amplifying the MINI Countryman S ALL4's prowess (combined fuel consumption: 7.4 — 6.8 l/62 miles (100 km); combined CO2 emissions: 169 — 155 g/km under the WLTP). 

Interior Sophistication and Versatility

The cabin’s flexibility is maximized with a rear seat that can be shifted up to 13 cm, optimizing either legroom or cargo space to suit diverse needs. 

A panoramic glass roof bathes the interior in natural light, while JCW-specific seats, crafted from premium synthetic leather adorned with contrasting red stitching, provide both security and indulgent comfort. 

Practicality Redefined

Navigating the Future

Pioneering a new era of driving, the MINI Countryman introduces Driving Assistant Plus, ushering in partially automated Level 2 driving capabilities for the first time. 

The system empowers the driver with the freedom to momentarily relinquish control up to a speed of 37 mph (60 km/h) while remaining vigilant and primed to intervene. Both the Countryman S ALL4 and the JCW variant will make their debut in spring 2024, followed by the electric SE All4 later in the year.
