MINI Goes After Business And Fleet Buyers With More Affordable Clubman City

MINI is targeting business and fleet buyers with a new entry-level version of the Clubman, called Clubman City.

Priced from £19,995 ($26,255/€22,422) in the UK, tax included, it’s available with a choice of two engines, a 1.5-liter petrol or a 1.5-liter diesel.

The most affordable variant comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, but there’s an optional automatic transmission. Pricing for the automatic petrol model starts at £21,555 ($28,304/€24,171), while the oil burner version begins at £23,855 ($31,234/€26,750).

MINI says their entire range of cars sold in the UK as of July 2018, including the new Clubman City, is now WLTP compliant.

“We’re well aware that many fleets operate strict CO2 limits, but also need to offer drivers vehicles that are versatile and suitable for everyday life; be that commuting, travelling with the family or using the vehicle for leisure purposes”, commented MINI UK’s Head of Corporate Sales, Steve Roberts. “MINI Clubman, one of the brand’s most versatile vehicles, offers all of these benefits alongside a great standard specification for the corporate market.”

The equipment list is said to be “designed for those who live their life on the go”, and includes air conditioning, cruise control and sports steering wheel, which are carried over from the previous entry-level Clubman.

The City derivative comes with standard 6.5-inch infotainment system, satellite navigation system, Apple CarPlay, DAB Radio, Bluetooth, Real Time Traffic Information, Intelligent Emergency Calling and Park Distance Control, too.

It sits on 16-inch Revolite Spoke wheels, which can be upgraded to 17-inch Silver Vent Spoke, Silver Net Spoke or Black Net Spoke. Run flat tires are available as well, at an extra cost.
