MINI's ALL4 all-wheel-drive system has been extended to lower-spec Countryman and Paceman models in overseas markets.

Previously, the ALL4 system in both ranges was reserved for Cooper S and John Cooper Works (JCW) editions, matched to a 1.6 litre turbo-charged engine.

The addition of ALL4 options for the normally-aspirated Countryman and Paceman models means there are now ten all-wheel-drive MINIs to choose from.

A six-speed manual gearbox is standard with an optional six-speed automatic transmission also available.

The turbo-charged 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine which is currently available in the Cooper S and JCW ALL4 versions of the Countryman and Paceman produces 135kW of power. This propels the MINI from 0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds.

In comparison, the normally-aspirated 1.6 litre petrol engine offered in the Cooper Countryman and Cooper Paceman ALL4 models will produce 90kW.

Drivers will pay a performance price for lugging around the extra weight in the normally-aspirated ALL4 MINIs, with the 0-100km/h time drifting out to 11.6 seconds in the best-performing model (the Cooper Paceman ALL4, fitted with automatic transmission).

In Australia, ALL4 MINI options currently include the Diesel, S and S Diesel versions of the Countryman.

Speaking with TMR today, MINI Australia's Scott Croaker said there would be no additions to the local Cooper Countryman ALL4 line-up, but noted one new addition to the Paceman line-up.

“The John Cooper Works version of the Cooper Paceman is now available with the ALL4 all-wheel-drive system,” Mr Croaker said.

MINI Cooper Paceman ALL4 JCW edition is priced from $58,600 (plus on-road costs), while the cheapest Cooper Countryman ALL4 is the Diesel, priced from around $39,750 (plus on-road costs).
