Mini reveals new Clubman


Mini has revealed an updated version of its five-seat Clubman wagon with a range of exterior and interior design changes, additional standard features and new digital connectivity tech.

A fresh front-end design is centred on a new grille with optional LED headlights (featuring a high-beam matrix function) and new LED fog lights either side.

Additional body colours include ‘Piano Black’, tail-lights are LED (Union Jack design optional) and updated alloy wheel designs in 16- through to 19-inch diameter are offered.

A sports suspension lowers the car by 10mm, a fully adaptive suspension is optionally available alongside the sports set-up, extra leather trims and interior elements have been incorporated, the ‘Mini Connected’ system has new functions added and the ‘Original Mini Accessories’ range has been extended.

As well as Piano Black, ‘Indian Summer Red metallic’, ‘British Racing Green metallic’ and ‘Mini Yours Enigmatic Black metallic’ have been added to the exterior colour palette.

A range of available interior treatments includes illumination of the door bezels, cockpit trim and centre console elements.

Although Australian pricing and spec is yet to be finalised, Mini has launched the new Clubman globally in eight model variants powered by a range of three- and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, with a choice of six-speed manual gearbox or seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission.

The eight model (global) Clubman range starts with the Mini One, stepping through the Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper S All4, One D, One SD and SD All4.

BMW Australia says the new model is scheduled to arrive in the fourth quarter of this year, with the local line-up likely to mirror the outgaing range, "Cooper and Cooper S initially, with the new JCW arriving after that, likely early into the new year."

That means no diesels, with current model pricing a guide prior to the newcomer's arrival - $37,900 for the 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol Cooper, $45,900 for the Cooper S, through to $56,900 for the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol JCW All4.
