Mini Clubman

by | Jul 17, 2019 | Mini | 0 comments

Universal Mini Clubman second generation has become the largest in the history of the brand.

Unlike the former three-door Clubman, the five-door version of the hatchback was taken as the basis of the novelty, so the car turned out to be unusually large. The wagon kept the scheme with two rear hinged doors, used in the first generation Clubman.

The length of the car is 4253 mm, and the width and height are 1800 and 1441 mm with a wheelbase of 2670 mm.

Thus, the Clubman turned out to be 270 mm longer and 73 mm wider than the first generation model.

The wagon is designed to carry five passengers and 360 liters of luggage (82 liters more than the five-door hatch). If the rear row of seats folded, then this figure will grow to 1,250 liters.

Since the Mini Clubman is built on the same platform as the Mini hatchback and the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer compact van, the car received a line of power plants similar to these models with three- and four-cylinder engines.

In Europe, the wagon can be ordered with gasoline engines of 1.5 or 2.0 liters (134 and 192 hp) or with a two-liter diesel engine (150 hp). Engines can be paired with a six-speed “mechanics” or FRG with six or eight ranges.

The least productive motor can accelerate a wagon to 100 km / h in 9.1 seconds, and a more powerful gasoline unit in 7.2 seconds. With a diesel engine, acceleration to “hundred” will take 8.6 seconds.
