The MINI Cooper Clubman ALL4 and the John Cooper Works Convertible that were announced back in January both made their world debuts in New York at the 2016 New York International Auto Show. The ALL4 all-wheel-drive system is a front-wheel drive system that will shift power from the front to the rear wheels whenever conditions warrant it. The power shift takes just a fraction of a second. The new ALL4 system is also lighter and more compact than previous all-wheel drive platforms for improved handling and fuel economy. Both the Cooper Clubman ALL4 and Cooper S Clubman ALL4 come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission but an 8-speed automatic is optional.
The MINI Convertible gets the John Cooper Works treatment with a stiffer suspension, redesigned body kit, 18″ wheels and red brake calipers. Under the hood on the JCW Convertible is a 2.0L turbo engine that pumps out 228 horsepower. Canadian pricing information is not available for these new MINIs but in the US the MINI Cooper Clubman ALL4 will start at $26,750, and the MINI Cooper S Clubman ALL4 will start at $33,330. The MINI Convertible John Cooper Works will start at $35,600.
