MINI Clubman gets a 2019 refresh
16th April 2019
With a newly modified design, the latest technology and hallmark MINI driving fun, the new MINI Clubman has received fresh exterior and interior design changes for 2019.
Ride comfort, space and versatility characterise the new MINI Clubman which establishes a distinctive new style within the compact segment. There is a choice of two petrol engines and one diesel engine, with output ranging from 126hp to 192hp (combined fuel consumption: 43.5 – 70.6mpg; combined CO2 emissions: 147 – 105 g/km). The extremely sporty MINI John Cooper Works Clubman will join the range at a later date.
The most striking design feature of the new MINI Clubman is the newly designed grille, which now extends across the entire bumper. With a new structure for the air inlet, it gives the front view a particularly distinctive appearance. The grille is bordered by a slim frame produced from a single piece.
The distinguishing look of the new MINI Clubman from the front is enhanced by the modified design of the circular headlamps. The LED headlamps includes LED modules for low and high beam, which generate enhanced brightness, and a shield that is also finished in black. A white ring of light surrounding the headlamps serves both as daytime driving light and turn indicator. In addition, LED fog lamps are standard on this model as well. The new MINI Clubman is fitted as standard with LED rear lights. The light units with chrome surround are now integrated in the wings of the split door.
Depending on the model variant, the new MINI Clubman is fitted as standard with either 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels. 18-inch and 19-inch alloy wheels are available.
An entirely new sports suspension is also now available and offers a 10 millimetre height reduction, further optimising the vehicle’s agile driving response. There is also the option of an adaptive suspension. This enables the driver to choose between two characteristic curves for the damper set-up via the MINI Driving Modes toggle switch – one setup geared for comfort, and the other for a sportier driving style.
The new MINI Clubman offers a high level of standard features, including MINI Navigation on a 6.5” display, Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) and Apple CarPlay. In addition, for those wanting a more powerful looking MINI Clubman, the Sport style adds a John Cooper Works Sports steering wheel, John Cooper Works sports seats and 17” John Cooper Works Track Spoke alloy wheels as standard. Completing the trio of styles, Exclusive offers customers the option of additional luxury. With 17” Roulette Spoke alloys, MINI Yours leather steering wheel and MINI Yours Leather Lounge sports seats as standard.
The engine portfolio for the new MINI Clubman includes a 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder petrol engine along with one 4-cylinder diesel engine, all of which feature the latest generation of MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology.
Instead of the standard 6-speed manual transmission, a 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch is optionally available for the MINI Cooper Clubman and the MINI Cooper S Clubman. A 7-speed Steptronic sports transmission is also optionally available for the MINI Cooper S Clubman.
At market launch, the new MINI Clubman will be available in three model variants: Cooper, Cooper S and Cooper D. The new MINI Clubman is available from April 2019 from £21,200.
