The latest iteration of MINI Clubman is now available in India at Rs 37.9 lakh ex-showroom price in New Delhi. This is the second product which has been introduced in the country this year by the British car maker. It had earlier launched the MINI Cooper S Convertible. The Clubman is currently the longest model in the inventory of the English Carmaker.
The carmaker had announced its plans to launch the Clubman and the Cooper S Convertible in India during the 2016 Auto Expo. The latest iteration of the Clubman is based on the front-wheel-drive UKL platform much akin to its smaller cousins. It also borrows its design features from the Cooper S.
MINI Clubman Specifications
The latest version of MINI Clubman is 270 mm longer and 90 mm wider than the basic MINI -5 door and also has an added wheelbase of 100 mm also. This has translated into increased cabin space and has also augmented the boot capacity to 360 litres. By adjusting the rear seat, this can be further expanded to 1,250 litres.
The car has comfortable seats for four adults, and there is generous space for luggage. Under the hood, the car has a 2.0 petrol engine coupled with an 8-speed- automatic Steptronic transmission which produces 189bhp and 280Nm of maximum torque.
MINI Clubman Exteriors and Interiors
The next generation MINI has gone through a lot of change when it comes to its design and features. It bears a smooth new face complemented by a larger front grille and a honeycomb pattern. The characteristic sweptback headlamp cluster comes with added projector lights with LED daytime running lights with chrome bezels. The car also bears new round fog lamps along with redesigned ORVMs and door handles. The car looks much similar to its predecessors when viewed from the side. It also features swanky new alloy wheels.
The rear of the car has the typical two-door tailgate with chrome handles with the Clubman insignia below. The LED tail light has been redesigned and now features a bold chrome border and a fresh light pattern. The rear bumper has also been reworked, and the lower portions of the bumper get addition protection in the form of plastic claddings.
