The facelifted Clubman will only carry cosmetic changes and nothing related to mechanicals, dimensions and structural changes
Minni has been extensively reworking on its models ranging from Cooper S and D along with the latest Countryman. Now, new spy shots reveal the Mini Clubman facelift which has been spotted in India.
Mini Clubman facelift spotted in India features camouflaged front and rear fascia of the car. This 5-seater Mini will mostly get visual changes and will continue with the same structural, mechanical and dimensions with the facelifted version.
As we can say, this facelifted Clubman will come with an updated grille, LED headlamps featuring matrix high beam and LED fog lights for better illumination. LED lighting treatment will be present in the taillight section too and an optional Union Jack lighting tail light design will be available.
Furthermore, there will also be a sports suspension setup which will lower the ride height by 10 mm. This provides superior driving dynamics to the car.
The interiors of the facelifted Mini Clubman will get a larger touchscreen along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as connectivity features. It will also receive new upholstery design along with additional options so the occupants stay connected.
Under the hood, it will carry the same 2.0-litre, petrol engine which produces 189 bhp on tap along with 280 Nm of peak torque at 1,250 rpm. Transmission option includes an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The facelifted version is expected to launch early next year.
The ongoing Clubman Cooper S comes in a total of nine colour options – Midnight Black, Pepper White, Blazing Red, Melting Silver, Digital Blue, British Green Racing II, Moonwalk Grey, Lapislluxury Blue and Pure Burgundy.
The Mini Clubman measures 3,850 mm in length, 1,727 mm in width and gets a height of 1,414 mm. The kerb weight of the ongoing Clubman sticks at 1,220 kg with a wheelbase of 2,495 mm.
We can expect features like Sport and Green Driving mode, Cruise Control, Park Assistant, Rearview camera and a heads-up display. In terms of safety, it gets front and passenger airbags, Brake Assist, DSC, Crash Sensor, ABS, Cornering Brake Control and Run-flat tyres as standard.
With the introduction of a facelift, the prices of the Clubman is expected to increase. The ongoing model is priced at Rs 41.15 lakh and it comes in only one trim. This mentioned price relates to ex-showroom, Delhi.
