Is the Clubman All4 the one for all conditions?

The MINI Clubman All4 has been revealed ahead of its official debut at the New York International Auto Show in March. The all-wheel drive Clubman offers two-wheel and four-wheel drive, and torque vectoring.

When operating in four-wheel drive, the All4 minimises loss of torque by up to 30 percent, and reduces fuel costs too. If there is any sign of slip, the system automatically engages the variable clutch to shift torque to the rear wheels.

Initially, the All4 will have a choice of two engines. The first is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. This produces 189bhp and 279Nm of torque. With the standard six-speed manual gearbox, the vehicle is capable of 0-60mph in a little over seven seconds, and a top speed of 140mph. It is also claimed that it will manage 40.9mpg and CO2 emissions of 159g/km. An eight-speed automatic gearbox enables 44.8mpg and a CO2 emission figure of 146g/km.

The other engine choice is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel option that produces 182bhp and 400Nm of torque. Acceleration and speed are a shade down on the petrol engine but 58.9mpg is a welcome increase, and CO2 emissions of 126g/km are attractive too.

Satellite navigation comes as standard, as do safety features such as six airbags and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
