While it was only available in front-wheel drive, that now changes with the addition of a front-biased AWD system.

Mini claims the AWD system can shift power from the front wheels to the rear in just 0.25 second.

If you want a bit more power, you can step up to the Cooper S Clubman, which packs a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine.
