MINI Australia has used this week’s Motorclassica Concours in Melbourne as the venue to announce the preliminary specification and pricing for its new Clubman small hatch.

In typical MINI style, the Clubman flaunts its uniqueness by being the only six-door available on the market, offering four conventional doors in lieu of the previous Clubman’s ‘Clubdoor’ on the driver’s side - as well as a pair of side hinged rear barn doors.

Australia will get just two variants of the new Clubman, the Cooper Clubman and the Cooper S Clubman.

The Cooper features the same 100kW 1.5 litre three-cylinder engine as the more conventional five-door hatch, while the Cooper S inherits MINI’s 141kW 2.0 litre turbo four-cylinder.

 

Features

The Clubman’s biggest feature, but one that doesn’t appear on any spec sheet, is interior room, which has grown over the previous model thanks to the adoption of the BMW group’s flexible UKL1 front-wheel-drive platform.

For now MINI has only divulged a short-and-sharp version of the Clubman’s equipment, with full details to come at the car’s official launch in November.

Preliminary specs include:

Cooper Clubman

16-inch alloy wheels
Cloth upholstery
6.5-inch MINI Visual Boost infotainment system
Reversing camera
Rear park sensors
Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity
LED interior lighting
Auto air conditioning with rear air vents
Forward collision warning
Front and rear fog lights
Storage compartment package

Cooper S Clubman (in addition to Cooper)

17-inch alloy wheels
Cloth and leather upholstery
John Cooper Works leather steering wheel
Satellite navigation
MINI Performance control
Comfort access with contactless opening tailgate
Dual chrome-finished exhaust outlets

 

Powertrain

Under the bonnet of the new Clubman, MINI has employed the same engines as seen in the MINI hatch range.

Cooper Clubman arrives with the 100kw/220Nm 1.5 litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine from the Cooper hatch, coupled to a six-speed automatic.

Upgrade to the Cooper S Clubman and power climbs to 141kW with 280Nm of torque courtesy of a four-cylinder turbo petrol. The Cooper S also introduces an eight-speed automatic to the MINI line-up.

For those who like to row their own, a six-speed manual will also be available as a no cost option.

 

Pricing

Cooper Clubman $34,900
Cooper S Clubman $42,900
