The new MINI Clubman ALL4 and MINI John Cooper Works convertible will make their world premiere at the 2016 New York Auto Show.

The MINI Clubman ALL4 features the British automaker’s all-wheel-drive system, allowing it to shift power from the front to the rear in just a quarter of a second. MINI claims that it is also lighter and more compact than previous all-wheel-drive platforms, giving the Clubman ALL4 better handling, fuel efficiency and interior space.

The MINI Clubman ALL4 comes in two flavors, with the base model powered by a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Those looking for more performance can opt for the MINI S Clubman ALL4 that is powered by a 2.0-liter with 189 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque.
