New Entry-level Mini Clubman for the UK Market

At the Geneva Motor Show in March, MINI will unveil a new entry-level version of the Clubman.

The MINI One Clubman will be affordable but it will also feature the additional interior room of the Clubman.

The engine will be a 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with 95-horsepower, and this will allow the 0-100km/h to come in 11.6 seconds. The low power figures will allow the fuel-economy and emissions to be set at reasonable figures. There will also be brake regeneration, auto start/stop and a shift point display which will tell the driver when he should change gears to get maximum fuel economy.

The result of all of these technologies will mean that the driver will be able to get around 52.3 mpg and CO2 emissions of 130g/km.

Pricing in the UK will start at £13,290 and all models will feature new exterior paint combinations and standard air conditioning.

The MINI One Clubman will be unveiled at the International Geneva Motor Show on 03 March 2009. The new entry-level model in the Clubman range gives customers the chance to take advantage of MINI’s renowned low running and ownership costs, and carries a list price of £13,290 OTR.

Powered by the 1.4-litre, four cylinder petrol engine found in the Hatch version of the MINI One, the newcomer possesses all the characteristics that make driving every MINI a grin-inducing experience. With an engine producing 95 hp and the same steering and suspension as its sporty Cooper-badged sibling, the MINI One Clubman boasts trademark go-kart handling and razor-sharp cornering capability.

Outstanding fuel efficiency and low CO2 emission figures are ensured through the standard fitment of MINIMALISM technologies. Brake Energy Regeneration, Auto Start Stop and Shift Point Display are all standard features on the car. Fuel bills will be minimised due to a combined fuel consumption figure of 52.3 mpg, and the cost of an annual road fund licence will be just £35 because of the MINI One Clubman’s impressive CO2 emission figure of just 130 g/km, placing it in VED tax band C.

A short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission is standard, with the option of a 6-speed auto with manual-shift capability.

New exterior colour combinations will be available for the MINI One Clubman. It will be possible to specify Silver or Black variants of this model with the same colour C-pillars. Previously the C-Pillar was always supplied in a contrasting shade.

From 01 January 2009, air conditioning is supplied as standard with every new MINI. UK dealers are ready to take orders for the MINI One Clubman now.
