Preview: The 2014 Mini Clubman

October 16, 2014

Iconic British car manufacturer Mini revealed their latest Mini Clubman at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show – and it looks bigger and better than ever! Its sumptuously stylish design is a big improvement over the previous model, while the ‘barn-door’ style boot at the rear makes the Clubman a six-door offering. The new model will go on sale later this year – and we’ve got all the juicy details in our Mini Clubman review!

  • Bigger and better than before

  • New and improved styling

  • Available with a gutsy 2.0-litre turbocharged engine

Design

The Mini Clubman 2014 is undoubtedly better looking that its previous model, with a sporty sloping roofline, curved back end, horizontally mounted tail-lights and a Clubman badge running across both boot doors. In spite of its changes, the Mini still manages to keep the classic looks that made the original Mini so iconic. Clearly the most recognisable change to the Clubman’s aesthetic is the addition of two passenger doors, making it a six-door car if you include the unique boot doors – bringing an end to passengers having to clamber over the front seats.

The cabin of the new Clubman is packed full of quality materials and futuristic technology – providing a level of refinement that puts the Mini firmly above the competition. Wood, leather and metal are used throughout, giving the Mini a classy touch – while a large central screen adorns the dashboard beautifully. According to early details, the unit will be touch screen, displaying terrain sensing sat-nav in unison with the new Mini’s two-stage adaptive dampers.

Performance

The 2014 Clubman will offer the same choice of engines as the rest of the Mini range, which means a 136bhp 1.5-litre triple in the Cooper model, a 1.5-litre diesel and a larger 2.0-litre turbo for the flagship Clubman John Cooper Works – which will be the pick of the bunch for serious Mini enthusiasts. This British classic will be available with either a 6-speed manual, or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Price

The new Mini Clubman is set to go on sale towards the end of 2014 and you can expect prices around £16,000 mark. If you’d like to get your hands on a Mini Clubman of your own, then you’re in luck!
