The per­fect union of Bri­tish crafts­man­ship and flaw­less Ger­man engi­neer­ing, the new MINI Club­man is un­doubt­edly the big­gest and the most so­phis­ti­cated MINI.

The ex­te­rior of the new MINI Club­man be­longs to a genre that com­bines iconic MINI de­sign lan­guage with en­hanced func­tion­al­ity. This is re­flected by means of a stretched sil­hou­ette, a long roof line and a steep rear. The most eye-catch­ing de­sign el­e­ment is the hall­mark rear split-doors that im­me­di­ately el­e­vate the style quo­tient. Cir­cu­lar head­lamps with in­te­grated LED day­time run­ning lamps with chrome sur­rounds, hexag­o­nal con­tours of the ra­di­a­tor grill and the vig­or­ously arched power dome of the en­gine com­part­ment lid add more flair to the al­ready im­pres­sive front fa­cia. The newly de­signed LED head­lights and LED rear-lights fur­ther en­hance the car’s sleek ap­pear­ance.

The broad stance of the rear is ex­hib­ited in pow­er­ful shap­ing of shoul­der con­tours, pro­nounced wheel arches and ex­haust tailpipes that are set wide apart. To­gether, th­ese high­light the breadth and sta­ble stature of the new MINI Club­man.

Im­pos­ing spa­cious­ness is an out­stand­ing qual­ity, thanks to clever space util­i­sa­tion in typ­i­cal MINI style. All oc­cu­pants en­joy a roomy in­te­rior. Ad­justable rear seat back­rest and gen­er­ous legroom

guar­an­tee first class com­fort for rear pas­sen­gers as well. Op­tional elec­tri­cally ad­justable seats with mem­ory func­tion for the driver and front pas­sen­ger have been in­tro­duced for the first time in a MINI.

The in­te­rior of the new MINI Club­man blends modern aes­thet­ics and re­fined crafts­man­ship with prac­ti­cal func­tion­al­ity. A clear sig­nal of the more so­phis­ti­cated char­ac­ter is the ex­cep­tion­ally wide in­stru­ment panel with cock­pit fa­cia frame. The cen­tral dis­play is in­te­grated into the vis­ually ap­peal­ing yet er­gonomic dash­board. Sur­rounded by an LED ring and avail­able with the 6.5-inch Ra­dio MINI Vis­ual Boost as stan­dard, it serves as the most aes­thetic dis­play for man­ag­ing func­tions re­lated to in­fo­tain­ment, tele­phone, driver and the ve­hi­cle. The selec­tion and con­trol is fa­cil­i­tated by a Con­troller in the cen­tre con­sole.

Multi-func­tion sport leather steer­ing wheel and sports seats for driver and front pas­sen­ger en­hance the unique ‘go-kart’ feel. The op­tional panorama glass roof, largest in the MINI range, al­lows am­ple amounts of nat­u­ral light and fresh air, and in­creases the feel­good fac­tor of the cabin.

For en­hanced per­son­al­i­sa­tion there is also a choice of nine up­hol­stery op­tions, in­clud­ing the new vari­ant Leather Ch­ester in an ex­clu­sive Indigo Blue shade. With their di­ag­o­nal quilt­ing, th­ese new-gen­er­a­tion seats evoke the look and feel of the clas­sic Ch­ester­field sofa. With in­te­grated sports seats, the all-new MINI Club­man de­liv­ers a con­tem­po­rary in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the Ch­ester­field di­a­mond pat­tern in an au­to­mo­tive con­text.

The MINI Ex­cite­ment Pack fea­tures LED in­te­rior and am­bi­ent light­ing which il­lu­mi­nates the cabin with a choice of se­lectable colours as well as the pro­jec­tion of the MINI logo from the ex­te­rior mir­ror on the driver’s side when open­ing and clos­ing the car door. With the new op­tional MINI Yours In­te­rior Style sur­faces, the door

trim de­sign is high­lighted via il­lu­mi­nated dec­o­ra­tive strips.

Sleek as it is savvy, the all-new MINI Club­man is the epit­ome of ‘form meets func­tion’. The in­te­rior is as prac­ti­cal as it is strik­ing with nu­mer­ous stor­age fa­cil­i­ties: a large glove com­part­ment, stor­age com­part­ments in split doors, and door pock­ets. Us­ing the cargo func­tion, boot ca­pac­ity can be in­creased from 360 litres to 1,250 litres by fold­ing down the rear back­rest with its 40: 20: 40 split. An­other ex­cit­ing fea­ture is Easy Opener which al­lows the driver to open the boot via re­mote or sim­ply by a foot waved be­low the rear bumper. The op­tional alarm sys­tem il­lu­mi­nates the red LED sta­tus light in­te­grated in the fin an­tenna al­low­ing the car to be lo­cated eas­ily in a crowd.

Driv­ing ex­cite­ment gives you a raft of tools to keep the adren­a­line pump­ing in the new MINI Club­man. The 2-litre 4-cylin­der en­gine with Twin­power Turbo Tech­nol­ogy makes the MINI Club­man higher on per­for­mance and lighter on fuel. It mo­bilises a peak out­put of 141 kw/192 hp and a max­i­mum torque of 280 Nm torque. It sprints from 0 to 100 km/hr in 7.2 sec­onds and the top speed is 228 km/hr.

The stan­dard 8-speed au­to­matic step­tronic trans­mis­sion is avail­able in a MINI for the first time, pro­vid­ing for even more ef­fi­cient, com­fort­able and sporty driv­ing due to a broader gear spread and smaller en­gine speed steps. The op­tional sports au­to­matic step­tronic trans­mis­sion with shift pad­dles makes for even sportier driv­ing.

MINI Driv­ing Modes en­able an in­di­vid­u­alised ve­hi­cle set-up fo­cus­ing on ei­ther ride com­fort, sporti­ness or ef­fi­ciency, ac­cord­ing to driver’s pref­er­ence. In ad­di­tion to the stan­dard MID mode there is a choice of SPORT and GREEN mode.

Driver as­sis­tance sys­tems in­clude Cruise con­trol and op­tional fea­tures like rear view cam­era, Park­ing As­sis­tant and Head-up Dis­play.

The ex­cit­ing world of MINI Con­nected comes with Ra­dio MINI Vis­ual Boost. Full func­tion­al­ity is avail­able through the app down­loaded via itunes or Google Play Store. Blue­tooth mo­bile con­nec­tiv­ity, AUX-IN socket, and a USB in­ter­face guar­an­tee round the clock in­fo­tain­ment. The op­tional MINI Wired pack­age of­fers an 8.8 inch touch screen with Touch­pad con­troller, Nav­i­ga­tion Sys­tem Pro­fes­sional, MINI Con­nected XL and a 20 GB in­ter­nal hard drive for all me­dia stor­age.

The new MINI Club­man is stacked with cut­ting-edge safety tech­nol­ogy. The stan­dard safety equip­ment com­prises Front and Pas­sen­ger Airbags, Brake As­sist, 3-Point Seat Belts, Dy­namic Sta­bil­ity Con­trol, Crash Sen­sor, Anti-lock Brak­ing Sys­tem, Cor­ner­ing Brake Con­trol and Run-flat In­di­ca­tor.

The stan­dard MIN­I­MAL­ISM tech­nol­ogy in­cludes an auto start/ stop func­tion, brake en­ergy re­cu­per­a­tion, ac­tive cool­ing air flaps and electro­mechan­i­cal power steer­ing.
