Next generation. Mini clubman
The new generation of the MINI model family continues to grow. With the new MINI Clubman, it now conquers the premium compact segment, as well. The new model offers the highest level of everyday practicality, long distance suitability, versatility and ride comfort ever seen in a MINI. With four doors and the characteristic split doors at the rear, five fully-fledged seats and a generously sized, versatile interior, the new MINI Clubman meets all the requirements of the compact class in terms of functionality in its own unconventional way. Individual style, outstanding driving fun and the quality level of a premium automobile make it an exceptional phenomenon that allows additional target groups to get a taste of the distinctive MINI feeling.
The matured character of the new MINI Clubman is reflected in dimensions that are significantly larger than the predecessor model, a distinctive body concept, high-quality materials and finish quality and, also, new features in the areas of drive, suspension, comfort, safety, controls and connectivity; based on the latest MINI generation.
Its status as the largest representative of the new MINI generation is also clearly shown in comparison with the MINI 5 door. The new MINI Clubman is 27 centimetres longer and 9 centimetres wider than the latter, while its wheelbase is 10 centimetres larger. Its luggage compartment has a volume of 360 litres, which can be extended to as much as 1,250 litres by folding down the rear backrest. With engines with the latest generation of MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology power, the six model variants of the new MINI Clubman are now available at market launch (combined fuel consumption: 6.2 – 3.8 l/100 km).
In addition to the new MINI One Clubman and the new MINI Cooper Clubman, powered by 3-cylinder petrol engines with 75 kW/102 hp and 100 kW/136 hp respectively, the new MINI Cooper S Clubman also lines up for the start, with a 4-cylinder petrol engine and 141 kW/192 hp. The new MINI One D Clubman has a 3-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 85 kW/116 hp. What is more, two 4-cylinder diesel engines are premiered with 110 kW/150 hp in the new MINI Cooper D Clubman and 140 kW/190 hp in the new MINI Cooper SD Clubman. Another new feature for MINI is the 8-speed Steptronic transmission, available as an option for the MINI Cooper S Clubman, the MINI Cooper SD Clubman and the MINI Cooper D Clubman. For handling properties, all suspension components in the new MINI Clubman were also specially developed and harmonised to suit the model.
The new model opened up a whole new range of ways to enrich everyday life and leisure with driving fun typical of the brand. Its unique blend of contemporary utility value, individual charisma and traditional roots took it to worldwide popularity, reflected in a total sales figure of 204,669 units up until the end of its production period. Now, having further matured and grown out of the small car segment of its predecessor, the new MINI Clubman sets out to conquer additional target groups with progressive technology, clever functionality and individual style.
