Mini revamps the 2016 Clubman Range


The MINI Clubman continues to evolve with the latest arrival based around the popular shooting brake concept. The new Clubman is a significant improvement over its predecessors, offering greater practicality, spaciousness and that trademark MINI driving experience we have come to love.

The new MINI will starts at a base price of $34,900 plus on-roads, and is offered in two variants – a three-cylinder 1.5-litre twin turbo Cooper or a four-cylinder 2.0-litre Cooper S. The three-cylinder cooper generates 100kW, while the Cooper S builds up to 141kW. Both models come with a whole host of premium features as standard equipment.

Featuring an updated front wheel drive platform, the Cooper now benefits from broader proportions; the length has been increased by 292mm and it comes 117mm wider. The outcome of these dimensional changes results in a more functional interior delivering greater comfort to driver and passengers, while also increasing usable storage volume.

Both variants of the Clubman arrive with the same set of safety and curtesy options such as automatic start/stop, Servotronic steering, Dynamic Stability Control, Dynamic Traction Control, Forward Collision Warning and six airbags for the driver and front passenger. Reversing cameras with dynamic guidelines and rear park distance control are also standard across the two models.

The new MINI’s are covered by a three year/unlimited Km warranty and also provide the option of a single, one-off advance payment of $980 for selected maintenance and servicing via MINI TLC. The TLC plan covers servicing up to 70,000km or five years, whichever comes first.
