Refreshed Mini Clubman drops fleet-orientated City model

Mini has taken the wraps off the new Clubman at Auto Shanghai 2019, which sees revised styling and options, but drops the fleet-focused City trim from the line-up.

On sale now from £21,200, three engine choices kick things off with the Mini Cooper Clubman, Cooper S Clubman or Cooper D Clubman – each available with manual or automatic transmissions. The diesel variant offers the lowest CO2 emissions of the range, with 113g/km on 16-inch alloys with manual transmission, or 111g/km with the automatic transmission. Fuel consumption is rated at a respectable 65.7mpg average (67.3mpg for the auto).

Petrol options range from 120-147g/km CO2 and 43.5-53.3mpg, depending on engine (Cooper 3-cylinder turbo or Cooper S 4-cylinder turbo), transmission (6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch transmission automatic) and alloy-wheel size.

The fleet-focused City trim has been dropped from the line-up after the company observed poor demand with fleets that instead opted for the more expensive Cooper models, which commanded a marginal increase in price yet retained better residual values.

Three trim levels now include Classic, Sport or Exclusive. Each features as standard the Navigation Pack that comes with a 6.5-inch sat nav display with real-time traffic updates and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Mini Connected Services are also standard thanks to in-built 4G connectivity and includes Intelligent Emergency Call (E-Call) and Bluetooth. A Navigation Plus Pack can be added that comes with an 8.8-inch touch display and wireless charging. Other options include a head-up display and Harmon Kardon Hi-Fi system.

The new Clubman’s styling refresh includes Union Flag-type LED rear lights as standard, similar to those seen on the hatch model, a revised front end with LED lights and distinctive grille, and 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels as standard or new 18- or 19-inch designs.

An entirely new sports suspension with a 10 millimetre height reduction or adaptive suspension options are also available, along with a host of customisations including two new colour choices.
