Like the rest of the Mini range, the Clubman is a shrine of customization, so each of the three Clubman models share most their standard equipment. That includes:
- Bluetooth connectivity
- A toggle starter switch
- Multifunction steering wheel
- Automatic climate control
- Sport, Normal, and Eco driving modmes
- Adjustable ambient lighting
Optional extras are too vast to cover here. Suffice it to say, like the rest of the Mini family, the Clubman is customizable on a level normally reserved for much more expensive European exotics. This is not always a good thing, as prices for even the base Cooper Clubman, which start at just under $25,000, can end up cresting $43,000 for a fully loaded example. And that's before we dive into the powertrain differences.
Like the rest of the Mini range, the Clubman is available with three separate power levels. The base Cooper Clubman uses a 1.5-liter, turbocharged three-cylinder to produce 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. The quicker Cooper S Clubman gets a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder that pumps out 189 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Finally, a John Cooper Works model boosts the 2.0-liter's output to 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
Six-speed manuals are the order of the day, unless you pony up for the eight-speed automatic, a $1,500 expense across the range. The Clubman is notable because it's the first non-Countryman in the Mini range to get the All4 all-wheel drive system. It demands an $1,800 premium on the Cooper and Cooper S Clubman, but is standard with the JCW.
