Having originally been used as a model name back in the 1970s, the Clubman became an official part of the new Mini family in 2007 – with the model offering hatchback styling up to the B-pillar. Beyond that point, the Clubman came with an extended wheelbase and a large load space in the back which can accessed by split doors.
Currently in its second generation that was released in 2015, we take a look at the Clubman and see what customers can get a hold of…
What power options can you spec?
After Mini simplified the model line-up of all its products, the Clubman is now offered with five power units – three of which of offered on all three trim options. The City One and City One D are only offered in the base Classic model, which offer 100bhp and 114bhp respectively. Both of those can be teamed to an eight-speed automatic, while the lowest powered option can also come with a six-speed manual.
The remaining cars – which are powered by the Cooper, Cooper S and Cooper D engines – all can be teamed with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed auto, with the Cooper S offering the top performance output. The S develops 189bhp and 300Nm of torque, getting the Clubman from 0-60mph in 7.1 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 142mph. Four-wheel drive can also be fitted to certain options.
Which trim levels can you choose?
The Classic, Sport and Exclusive trims have come about due to Mini making it easier to calculate emissions of its models under the new WLTP emission guidelines. Base, Classic level Clubmans come with air conditioning, a 6.5-inch central display, a multi-function steering wheel, Bluetooth, DAB radio, the Navigation Pack with Apple CarPlay and 60/40 split folding rear seats. Daytime running lights, autonomous emergency braking, crash sensors and dynamic stability control are also fitted from standard.
The Sport option adds larger alloy wheels, John Cooper Works bodykit, sports seats, leather steering wheel, cruise control with braking, rear parking sensors and performance control – with sports suspension offered as a no-cost extra. For the Exclusive trim, the Clubman is fitted with 18-inch alloys, chrome exterior detailing, leather upholstery and cruise control with braking.
What optional extras are there?
Minis are renowned for offering lots of equipment upgrades and personalisation options, and the Clubman is no different. With 13 different body colour options and nine alloy wheel options, you can find the right look for your Clubman easily – while additional decal and design fixtures can be added to.
Mini also offers customers a series of equipment packs to improve the overall specification, with Comfort, Comfort Plus, Navigation Plus and Driving Assistant packs – each costing in excess of £800.
How much does it cost?
Prices for the Clubman start from £19,995 for the Classic option, while the Sport and Exclusive trims both start from £23,985.See local MINI Clubman prices
