Mini Clubman City targets fleets
Mini has revived the ‘City’ trim level, first used in the 1970s, as a version of the Clubman aimed at fleet and business customers.
The Mini Clubman City features an equipment list tailored to high-mileage drivers, including satellite navigation, rear parking sensors, Apple CarPlay connectivity and cruise control. It is fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels as standard, with 17-inch wheels as a no-cost option.
This can be paired with a choice of two 1.5-litre, three-cylinder engines; one petrol, one diesel. In Mini One guise, it gets the 101bhp petrol engine and either a manual or automatic transmission. The latter offers CO2 emissions of 130g/km with 49.6mpg fuel economy, and priced at £1,560 over the £19,995 entry-level manual model.
The One D version gets a 115bhp diesel engine, and is only offered with an automatic transmission. It’s the most efficient model in the Clubman City line-up, at 68.9mpg and 109g/km, but also the most expensive at £23,855. Ordering starts from today.
Steve Roberts, head of corporate sales at Mini UK, said: “We’re well aware that many fleets operate strict CO2 limits but also need to offer drivers vehicles that are versatile and suitable for everyday life; be that commuting, travelling with the family or using the vehicle for leisure purposes. Mini Clubman, one of brand’s most versatile vehicles, offers all of these benefits alongside a great standard specification for the corporate market.”
