Used Cars Mini Clubman

Mini Clubman Started Life In 1969 And Now Its Retired Second Time

In 1969, the first Mini Clubman arrived in England

This Clubman was the result of the efforts of chief stylist Roy Haynes to turn the Mini into a more up-to-date small car for the 1970s.

The idea was to create a more grown-up and assured appearance by means of a heavily modified front end. The Clubman ranked above its Mini siblings in the brand’s hierarchy and was available in Saloon and Estate versions.

The exceptional car with style caused a sensation from the start between 1969 and 1981 with its characteristic split doors at the rear. At that time, the Mini Clubman conquered the automotive market as a station wagon with a long wheelbase and extended shooting-brake body.

Then BMW Group took over the Mini brand and a new edition Clubman was introduced in 2007. This BMW re-invented Mini Clubman delivered a modern interpretation of the classic shooting-brake concept. Introduced in 2007 as the third variant of the re-launched Mini, it has become known and loved for many things, most notably its unique split rear doors

For access to the rear, there is only one door on the right side of the vehicle, which opens to the rear.

With the third model generation from 2015, the Mini Clubman grew again to a now 4.25 meters in length and becomes more spacious and comfortable thanks to the longer wheelbase and two full-sized rear side doors.

Together with the unique split rear doors, the Mini Clubman remains one of the most versatile MINI models to date. The spacious load opening makes it easy to load the luggage compartment, which currently holds up to 1,250 liters.

Now we have been informed that the Clubman is to be retired for good (yes, just like the Mini Paceman) and there is a limited edition version that will have just 1,969 units produced for the world market (the year the first clubman appeared was in 1969).

We are told that only a handful of units are allocated for Malaysia at RM318,888 and this Final Edition Clubman cites the year in which the legendary Mini Clubman was created and combines the specific brand tradition with exclusive design elements and strong characteristics.
