There is a New MINI Clubman in Mini showrooms right now and it continues to combine the hallmark MINI driving fun with a flair for both day-to-day driving and long-distance travel.

Bold new look, classic MINI touch.
Arriving in the iconic MINI sporty style, the New MINI Clubman expresses a distinctive new design that is stylish, individualistic and exclusive. The New MINI Clubman features hallmark brand elements, such as the domed bonnet, the circular headlamps – outlined in Piano Black – and the hexagonal contour of the newly designed radiator grille which now extends across the entire bumper.
The modified headlamps also give the New MINI Clubman a characteristic frontal appearance. The new LED headlights and fog lights feature LED modules for enhanced brightness in both low and high beam. A white ring of light surrounding the headlamps serves both as daytime driving light and turn indicator. The powerfully modelled contours and a new structure for the air inlet now give the New MINI Clubman a distinctive appearance as well, which is further emphasised with a dynamically elongated roof line and a steep rear for a compact sporty look.
The laterally opening wings in the rear makes the New MINI Clubman the only model in the compact segment to feature six doors, along with outstanding versatility offered by the fully extendable luggage compartment that expands from 360 litres to 1,250 litres. With the MINI Yours offering, the New MINI Clubman will be fitted with 18-inch light alloy wheels in the MINI Yours British Spoke Two-tone design.
Powerfully fuel-efficient for MINI driving fun.
The New MINI Clubman arrives in the Cooper S variant, sporting a 2.0 litre MINI TwinPower Turbo engine that produces 192 hp and 280Nm of torque, enabling a century sprint in just 7.2 seconds. The New MINI Clubman can also reach a top speed of 228km/h while consuming 6.2 litres of fuel per 100 km of travel and outputting 141 g/km of CO2.
The engine is paired with a new Seven-Speed Dual Clutch Sports Automatic Transmission that provides fast gear changes, a high degree of shift comfort and optimised efficiency. The transmission is operated via a newly designed electronic selector lever which returns to its original position after changing between driving mode, neutral position and reverse mode. The parking lock is activated by pressing the P button and SPORT programme can be activated by shifting the selector lever to the left on driving mode.
Additionally, the electronic control system of the transmission offers increase in efficiency via multiple progressive functions, such as the Start/Stop function that avoids unnecessary fuel consumption when stopped at junctions. The coasting function is also available in both the MID and GREEN driving modes for the New MINI Clubman, where the drivetrain is disengaged as soon as the driver removes their foot from the accelerator pedal. This allows the MINI to roll along at idling speed – free of any engine braking effect and at minimum fuel consumption.
