The All-wheel-drive 2017 Mini Cooper S Clubman All4 Has Arrived

April 27th, 2016 by

Fellow MINIacs, perfection has arrived for Colorado in the form of the all-wheel-drive 2017 MINI Cooper S Clubman ALL4. Boasting 189 HP channeled through either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, the new Clubman ALL4 has the chops to rip from 0-60 MPH in just 6.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 140 MPH. Still very much a MINI at heart, the “Clubbie” offers family-friendly versatility, all-weather traction, and unmatched handling, power, and efficiency. It’s yet another way to #DefyLabels and allow Schomp MINI to represent you in your pursuit of the ultimate rocky mountain lifestyle.

Styling changes to the 2017 Clubman ALL4 primarily include respective badging along the front doors and on the liftgate. With the exception of minor changes to interior trim offerings, not much else is different from last year’s model. Cargo space remains the same at a whopping 47.9 cubic feet – enough to fit a standard-sized washing machine with the rear seats folded. On that note, all Clubman models offer an optional 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat arrangement, which allows for the center of the seat to be folded even with two outboard occupants present – great for transporting longer items.

Though the base MINI Cooper Clubman continues to offer a 1.5-L, 134-HP three-cylinder engine, the Clubman ALL4 will initially be offered only with the larger 2.0-L, 189-HP four-cylinder mill. Thanks to BMW’s twin-power-turbocharging and direct-fuel-injection technologies, power remains strong and efficiency remains high. While oficial MPG numbers have not yet been released, the robust ALL4 all-wheel drive system primarily drives the front wheels in normal driving conditions, and adds less than 150 lbs of weight to the front-wheel-drive Clubman S. Accordingly, expect fuel economy to suffer only a minimal, if any, penalty in comparison to the standard Cooper S Clubman model.

There’s no denying the allure of the all-new 2016 MINI Clubman ALL4.  It’s elevated the brand to new heights with its tremendous flexibility, heightened power and efficiency, premium materials, and available ALL4 all-wheel drive.  Combining MINI’s three-complimentary three-year scheduled maintenance program makes ownership an even more compelling proposition.  Stop by Schomp MINI for an incredibly fun test drive today, and make sure to say “hello” before our official move to Highlands Ranch on May 23rd!
