This Clubman is built on a platform like the MINIs 4-door Cooper, which means it comes with four full-size doors. The Clubman also carries on the tradition of rear center-split "barn doors." These doors open to reveal 12.7 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the rear seats down and it becomes 44.1 cubic feet.
The usual MINI look and feel carries through the interior. The large center pod doesn't have a speedometer as seen in previous years models, but it does carry the vehicle's entertainment and navigation systems. Rounded corners, metal trim and toggle switches complete the MINI experience.
Standard equipment includes 17" alloy wheels with run-flat performance tires, a rear lip spoiler, LED headlights and fog lights, heated mirrors and rain-sensing wipers. Standard inside is a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a proximity key with push button start, a 6.5" screen as well as all the usual power accessories.
Standard safety equipment includes stability and traction control, tire pressure monitors, front seat mounted, 1st and 2nd row curtain airbags and driver and passenger knee airbags.
Wheels and tires on the Cooper S model are 17" alloy wheels while the JCW is complete with larger 18" rims, front sport buckets with 8-way manual adjustment and piano black interior trim. Heated and power adjustable mirrors are also standard across all models.
Options allow a lot of customization in typical MINI fashion. No fewer than three alloy wheel choices are available, as are three different colored roof and mirror caps and both white and black bonnet stripes. A Premium package adds auto-dimming interior rearview and exterior mirrors, 8-way power adjustable front seats, a 40/20/40 split rear seat, cargo net, SiriusXM Satellite radio and chrome trim on the front and rear bumpers along with a chrome grille. A Touchscreen Navigation package includes MINI TeleServices, Apple CarPlay and integrated navigation with real-time traffic information, wireless smart-phone charging and an additional USB port. An alarm system is also available.
A Driver Assistance Package adds park distance control with automated sensors, active cruise control and a heads-up display.
