Facelifted Mini Cooper Clubman revealed for 2019

The British brand has given the Clubman a facelift for the new model year, with updated styling, trim levels and engine specs

Though it might take an expert eye to spot differences between the updated and previous car, new to the Clubman is a re-styled front grille, adopting a BMW-esque approach by extending it across the entire bumper, alongside sharper front and rear lights, the latter retaining the unique Union Jack design. If you opt for Sports suspension you’ll also get a 10mm reduction in height over the previous car.

Though a hardcore John Cooper Works Clubman will join the range at a later date, three model variants are available currently. The range starts at the three-cylinder, 136bhp Clubman, moving through to the current range-topping Cooper S Clubman with a 192bhp, four-cylinder unit capable of a 7.3sec 0-62mph sprint and a top speed of 142mph – a diesel model is also available. Although a six-speed manual ’box comes as standard on all models, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is also offered as an option.
