New Mini Clubman Buyers Guide
The Clubman is an estate car manufactured by the German car maker BMW under the famous Mini brand name. If you wish to buy yourself (or someone else) a new Mini Clubman car then it will cost from £14,430 for an entry level model up to £21,065 for the top of the range model. The insurance group that this car falls into will depend on which model you choose to buy, but range from group 13 up to 30.
As with any new car purchase you will be offered a choice of different engines when you buy a new Clubman car. These are the same four-cylinder engines which are also fitted to the Hatch, apart from the 89bhp One Diesel which is not being offered as part of the Clubman range. That leaves a 1.6-litre I4 for the One or Cooper variants, 1.6-litre Prince turbocharged I4 engine for the Cooper S and 1.60litre BMW N47 diesel I4 which is available for the Cooper D and One D. Buyers are also offered the choice between a manual or automatic gearbox, both of which are 6-speed transmissions.
The CO2 emissions for this car will obviously depend on which engine you choose to have fitted, but can range from 103g/km up to 152g/km.
There is a good range of safety equipment fitted as standard with this car, including 6 airbags and a range of driver assistance system such as stability control, electronic brake force distribution, and brake assist driving.
The main reason that many people choose to buy the Clubman rather than one of the other Mini cars that are currently available on the new car market is because of the extra space which it offers. Compared to its brand siblings this car offers more storage space in the boot for carrying your stuff around, and also more legroom for passengers in the back seats.
