Fun x functional: The new MINI Clubman launches in Malaysia
It packs a punch
Not-so-mini, yet oh-so-powerful; MINI Malaysia has unveiled the new MINI Clubman, the newest member to the MINI family, and the only six-door-vehicle in the premium compact segment. In true MINI style, the Clubman embodies the combination of driving fun, premium charisma, functionality and unique individuality. It is introduced in two variants—the 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 Clubman retained its much-loved signature design feature, the split rear doors, while accessibility and every day functionality are enhanced with four full-sized side doors and five fully-fledged seats—boasting dimensions that are significantly larger than the predecessor model. It now has a length of 4,253mm, a width of 1,800mm and a height of 1,441mm, all packed in a sleek, commanding silhouette.
There is no compromising on power, as the new MINI Cooper Clubman houses a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder inline engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo technology, ensuring mighty sporting performance for its segment: a peak output of 136 hp and a maximum torque of 220 Nm—acceleration from 0-100km/h takes only 9.1 seconds with a top speed of 205 km/h. The MINI Cooper S Clubman, on the other hand, takes power delivery one step further. With its 2-litre 4-cylinder engine, it boasts a peak output of 192 hp and a maximum torque of 280 Nm, while 0-100 km/h takes merely 7.1 seconds with a top speed of 228 km/h.
The estimated retail price (on the road without insurance) of the new MINI Cooper Clubman is RM203,888, while the MINI Cooper S Clubman is priced at RM253,888. For more information, visit www.MINI.my.
