MINI Clubman All4 2016: 3 compact premium all-wheel drive that will have to face

The new MINI Clubman is now available with all-wheel drive, glittery as well in this new generation of MINI this configuration, however, bearing in mind that the signature positions (with all the sense in the world), now this MINI Clubman within the compact… what alternatives do we have in the market to the MINI Clubman All4?

Mercedes A Class, BMW 1 Series or Audi A3, all with awd to be expensive with this MINI:

If it is to meet the forecasts, the MINI Clubman All4 will be the compact of a certain approach and premium awd price more content.

Available with two engines, meeting with a Cooper S All4 of 192 horses, with a Cooper SD All4 190 horses, the first with manual or automatic exchange, the second only with automatic, the MINI Clubman All4 you will be faced with the following options:

BMW 1-Series: we started for the distant cousin of the MINI Clubman. This part of a platform of rear-wheel drive vs. the front wheel drive platform of the MINI, a platform that in BMW we are already in the X1 or in the 2-Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer. Taking as a reference the 5-door version we find that in gasoline the only option of all-wheel drive is the sports M135i xDrive, not comparable by their 326 horses and his price of 50.100 euro.

luckily in diesel if there are options more worldly sight, and, with a 118d xDrive 150 horses and 31.800 euros, with manual shift mode or a 120d xDrive of 190 horses that has a price of 37.400 euros, being only available with automatic transmission.

Audi A3 Sportback: in petrol we find a Audi A3 Attraction 1.8 TFSI 180 hp, with automatic change S tronic and all-wheel-drive by 34.695 euros while on the diesel could value the Audi A3 Attraction 2.0 TDI 150 cv with manual shift mode and quattro by 31.675 euros or the Audi A3 Attraction 2.0 TDI of 184 horses with automatic change S tronic and quattro by 38.025 euros.

Mercedes A Class: in the range of the compact mercedes we are in the range of gasoline with the Mercedes A 250 Sport 4Matic, a version with 218 horsepower, automatic change of double clutch and all-wheel drive that has a starting price of 44.275 euros, to fall short therefore quite what is expected, for the price, of MINI.

If we go to the range diesel we find a 220 d 4Matic with 177 horses and change of double clutch part from 38.600 euros.

we Must bear in mind that, for now, MINI has not communicated the prices of this version, but we do know that the MINI Clubman in the version Cooper S part from 29.900 euros, and the Cooper SD does from 31.900 euros, so the versions of all-wheel drive will be slightly more expensive.

we Can assume, therefore, that the MINI will be located in an advantageous position for price faced with these alternatives, but we will have to wait for MINI to communicate their prices to be able to confirm it.
