Motoring Grown up, Meet The New MINI Clubman


Irvine MINI is excited to confirm, the latest addition to the MINI family, the new Clubman, was unveiled yesterday.† It has grown up in both size and maturity compared to its predecessor launched in 2007. Completely redesigned and engineered from the ground up, the new MINI Clubman features premium quality and craftsmanship in every detail, creating a sleek and sophisticated interpretation of the brandís iconic style.

In fact, for the first time since the Clubman name was introduced in 1969, the new MINI Clubman has been developed as a separate model from the iconic MINI Cooper Hardtop, taking the legendary MINI sporting feel into a larger class of vehicle. The new MINI Clubman continues in the tradition of renowned British estate cars, offering a rare combination of passenger comfort and elegant styling while being fun to drive.

ďThe new Clubman strikes a perfect balance between MINIís heritage and future,Ē said David Duncan, Vice President MINI of the Americas. ďAs our flagship, the Clubman represents everything MINI does best while showing-off a more mature and refined side. Its premium styling and functional design will play a critical role as we reposition the brand over the next few years.Ē

Longer and wider than any other MINI, the new MINI Clubman offers exceptional versatility. Particular attention has been given to the comfort of rear-seat passengers, who enjoy generous leg-, elbow-, and shoulder-room. For carrying items rather than people, the cargo area can be significantly expanded by the flat-folding rear seats. The MINI Clubmanís hallmark split-rear doors are thoughtfully engineered for convenient access, whether in tight spaces or loading bulky objects. The rear doors can even be opened when oneís hands are full, with an optional foot-activated sensor.

This interior practicality is complemented by beautiful design and near-bespoke levels of customization. Several new upholsteries have been developed specifically for the new MINI Clubman, including a smooth-grained Indigo blue-dyed leather with diamond-stitching in the pattern of classic English Chesterfield sofas, and a rich Burgundy leather with environmentally friendly Dinamica trim. A host of other options take the MINI tradition of curated design to a new level of sophistication.

The new MINI Clubman, available in both Cooper and Cooper S variants, will go on sale at the beginning of 2016 at MINI dealers across the U.S. Pricing will be announced in September.

Irvine MINIís helpful and knowledgeable staff, expert factory-trained technicians, state-of-the-art service department, comprehensive parts department and one of the nationís largest selections of new, used and certified pre-owned MINIís have made Irvine MINI a landmark in Southern Californiaís automotive landscape.
