The 5-seater MINI Clubman has been given a few tweaks including a revised front design with a new radiator grille, LED headlights with Matrix function for the high beam, LED rear lights as standard and a sports suspension among them.
The latest updates in the range of MINI Connected digital services are added to the modern interpretation of the classic shooting brake concept of four side doors and five seats along with a luggage compartment behind the two split doors at the rear.
There is a choice of two engines with output ranging from 100 kW to 141 kW. The model range will be supplemented at a later stage with the new edition of the sporty MINI John Cooper Works Clubman, which will come standard with the all-wheel drive system ALL4.
The luggage compartment can be extended from 360 litres to 1 250 litres according to needs.
The radiator grille is now bordered by a slim frame produced from a single piece. The air inlet is separated into six black, horizontal struts, which can be optionally upgraded to a chrome version. Specific features in the front section of the MINI Cooper S Clubman are the hexagonal grid pattern instead of the horizontal struts and the individual chrome strut in the air inlet as well as the latter’s chrome-plated emblem with a red ‘S’ at the centre.
The standard halogen headlamps now have an enlarged reflector and a black shield on the inside. The daytime driving light is integrated in the parking lights in the lower section of the front apron. The optional LED headlamps likewise feature a new design. The modified styling includes LED modules for low and high beam, which generate enhanced brightness, and a shield that is also finished in black.
The adaptive LED headlamps with Matrix function for the high beam are available as a new option. They offer a turning light function, which can be recognised by an inlay inside the headlamp and automatically adapt their brightness to the situation on the road. In urban traffic and when visibility is limited due to the weather conditions, the side area of the road is illuminated more intensely by adding the dimmed turning light. When driving on motorways it is possible to selectively increase the range of the high beam.
Three new colour variants are available to choose from in terms of body finishes. The new MINI Clubman is now available in Indian Summer Red metallic, British Racing Green metallic or MINI Yours Enigmatic Black metallic. As an alternative to body colour, the roof and exterior mirror caps can also be finished in black, white or silver.
Depending on the model variant, the new MINI Clubman is fitted as standard with light alloy wheels that are either 16-inch or 17-inch in size. As an option, light alloy wheels are available in the sizes 18-inch and 19-inch.
The engine portfolio for the new MINI Clubman includes one 3-cylinder and one 4-cylinder petrol engine, each of which features the latest generation of MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology. A 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch is standard on the MINI Cooper Clubman and the MINI Cooper S Clubman.
At its market launch, the new MINI Clubman will be available in two model variants:
MINI Cooper Clubman: 100 kW, 0 – 100 km/h in 9,2 seconds, top speed: 205 km/h, fuel consumption combined: 5,4 – 5,3 litres/100 km, CO2 emissions combined: 122 – 120 g/km.
MINI Cooper S Clubman: 141 kW, 0 – 100 km/h in 7,2 seconds, top speed: 228 km/h, fuel consumption combined: 5,6 – 5,5 litres/100 km, CO2 emissions combined: 127 – 125 g/km.
The standard range of equipment of the new MINI Clubman includes an audio system with six speakers and a USB socket. This enables the use of audio streaming via a Bluetooth connection. The standard operating system includes a 6,5-inch colour screen in the central instrument and the MINI Controller on the centre console.
The optional equipment item Connected Navigation makes a range of additional infotainment functions available in the new MINI Clubman, as well as providing a convenient route guidance system. The MINI navigation system offers a map display with various perspectives on the 6,5-inch colour screen.
The key components of the optional equipment feature Connected Navigation Plus are an 8,8-inch colour screen – which also enables split-screen display – and the MINI Touch Controller. This option also comprises wireless charging for compatible mobile phones and a second USB socket.
