MINI dealers open doors to first Clubman customersPublished 8 November 2007
A new chapter in the MINI success story begins on 10th November 2007 as the new MINI Clubman goes on sale in the UK and across Europe. Dealers across the nation will be celebrating in style as this will be the first opportunity on British shores for the public to see the new car in the metal. The Clubman is the next body style in the MINI range to join the successful Hatch and Convertible models, which have sold over one million models since 2001.
The new MINI Clubman is 24cm longer than the Hatch, signifying 8cm more legroom for rear passengers and the opportunity for MINI to enter the market with five seats. Boot capacity has increased to 260 litres with the seats in place and up to 930 litres with the rear seats down. Access to this extra space has been made easier via the split rear doors and innovative Clubdoor on the right-hand side.
A range of engines combining performance with fuel efficiency and low carbon emissions features across the MINI Clubman line-up. Auto Start-Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration and a Gearshift Point Indicator are standard on all variants and helps the MINI Cooper D Clubman to achieve a low emissions figure of 109 g/km CO2.
