Mini has just launched the Clubman model in India and prices start at Rs 37.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Clubman joins the Mini family in India that until now consisted of the Cooper, Cooper Convertible and Countryman. This iteration of the Mini is basically a station wagon and is underpinned by the BMW UKL2 platform which is known to offer more interior space.
A unique trait of the Clubman are the rear barn doors that open up to reveal a boot capacity of 360 litres which increases considerably when the rear seats are folded flat. Under the hood of the Clubman Cooper S is the 192bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine that spins out 280Nm of torque and is coupled to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Like the rest of the Mini line-up, the Clubman is loaded inside out. You get LED headlights, LED fog lights, multifunction leather wrapped steering wheel, sports seats, rain sensing wipers, different driving modes, 17-inch alloys and lots more.
The Clubman is expected to take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the Volvo V40. It is priced at Rs 37.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the Cooper S trim.
