For 2016, Mini has done a complete rethinking of its Clubman model, increasing its size and introducing a new, more premium attitude. Along with this reimagining comes a new price, as Mini has now announced that the 2016 Mini Clubman starts at $24,950 for the standard model, and $28,500 for the Clubman S.
That’s a big jump of $2,755 over the previous Clubman’s base price, but does include a lot more car; in fact, the new Clubman is longer and wider than any other Mini ever made. It also now has four full doors, or six if you count the split-opening cargo doors in the rear. The standard Mini Clubman is powered by a 134-hp, 1.5-liter turbo three-cylinder that mates with a six-speed manual transmission with a rev-matching function. Other standard features include a Mini connected infotainment system with a 6.5-inch screen, dual-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, leatherette upholstery, and automatic headlights.
Stepping up to the $28,500 Clubman S model brings a more powerful, 189-hp, 2.0-liter turbo-four, which also pairs with a six-speed manual. It also includes sport seats, larger 17-inch wheels, fog lights, and a slightly different front fascia.
Of course, as with all Mini models, these base prices are just a starting point. Mini will offer its usually wide array of option packages, in addition to accessories that allow for a personalized look. Options like navigation, a panoramic sunroof, a Harman-Kardon audio system, and an adaptive suspension are all bundled in the various Premium, Technology, and Sport option groups.
Stay tuned for full pricing on these extras as we get close to the 2016 Mini Clubman’s arrival in January of next year.
