The iconic New generation MINI Clubman has been launched in Malaysia. It comes with a unique combination of driving fun, premium charisma, functionality as well as MINI style individuality.
The New MINI Clubman was introduced in two variants: New MINI Cooper Clubman, and MINI Cooper S Clubman.
Introducing the New MINI Clubman, Mr. Han Sang Yun, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said, “The New MINI Clubman creates a new chapter in the story of MINI. The new car revolutionises the brand, taking the MINI appeal a notch higher with current trendsetters and drives the creative class social segment.”
The New MINI Clubman is the only six-door vehicle in its segment and its much-loved signature design feature – its split rear doors – are retained, while accessibility and everyday usability are further enhanced with four full-sized side doors and five fully-fledged seats. Along with the versatile interior, the New MINI Clubman meets all the requirements of the compact class in terms of functionality in its own unconventional way.
The matured character of the New MINI Clubman is reflected in the dimensions that are significantly larger than the predecessor model. The New MINI Clubman now has a length of 4,253mm, a width of 1,800mm and a height of 1,441mm. Its distinctive proportions is also made up of a wheelbase that measures 2,670mm, while the track width is 1,564mm at the front and 1,565mm at the rear. Indeed, the MINI Clubman clearly accentuates its status as the largest representative of the new MINI generation.

The New MINI Cooper Clubman houses a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder inline engine which ensures sporting performance figures: a peak output of 136 hp and a maximum torque of 220 Nm. The acceleration from zero to 100 km/h needs only 9.1 seconds with a top speed of 205 km/h. Regardless, the average fuel consumption of the New MINI Cooper Clubman is 5.4 litres per 100 kilometres.
The New MINI Cooper S Clubmancarries the spirited power delivery one step further. With a 2-litre 4-cylinder engine, it mobilises a peak output of 192 hp and a maximum torque of 280 Nm. The New MINI Cooper S Clubman sprints in 7.1 seconds from standstill to 100 km/h, reaching a top speed of 228 km/h. These figures are combined with an average fuel consumption of 5.9 litres per 100 kilometres.
The 4-cylinder engine in the MINI Cooper S Clubman is coupled with an 8-speed Steptronic Transmission, also another MINI premiere, that ensures an even more favourable basis for efficient, comfortable and sporty driving. This is made possible with a broader gear spread and smaller engine speed steps. The shorter shift times can also be operated by means of paddle shifters at thesteering wheel. With that, driving performance is maximised by merging the convenience of automatic driving with the thrill of manual shifting.
