The new MINI Clubman five-seater has gained additional charisma with fresh accentuations for the exterior and interior. Ride comfort, space and variability define the all-round properties of the new MINI Clubman, its modern interpretation of the classic shooting brake concept establishing a distinctive style within the compact segment.
Four side doors and five seats along with a versatile luggage compartment behind the two split doors at the rear ensure a high degree of functionality and the kind of creative use of space that is characteristic of MINI.
There is a choice of two engines with output ranging from 100kW to 141 kW. The model range will be supplemented at a later stage with the new edition of the extremely sporty MINI John Cooper Works Clubman, which will come standard with the all-wheel drive system ALL4.
The body design of the new MINI Clubman is stylish, individual and exclusive. Its distinctive proportions result from a body corpus modelled in tight, sporty style as is typical of MINI, a dynamically elongated roof line and a steep rear.
In addition, the split doors consisting of two laterally opening wings make it the only model in the compact segment to offer six doors, along with outstanding versatility due to the fact that the luggage compartment can be extended from 360 litres to as much as 1 250 litres according to needs.
The most striking design feature of the new MINI Clubman is the newly designed radiator grille, which now extends across the entire bumper. With powerfully modelled contours and a new structure for the air inlet, it gives the front view a particularly distinctive appearance.
The radiator grille is 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.
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.
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.
At a later stage the model programme will be extended to include the new MINI John Cooper Works Clubman. The top athlete of the series is fitted as standard with the all-wheel drive system ALL4. With its fast and precise electronic control, this system ensures permanent distribution of power between the front and rear wheels as is appropriate to the situation.
