MINI – STYLE MEETS FUNCTIONALITY.
INDONESIAN PREMIERE: THE NEW MINI CLUBMAN.
Jakarta. MINI Indonesia today celebrates the premiere of the new generation of the MINI Clubman. Together with the introduction of this MINI model, BMW Group is also realigning the MINI Brand's product and brand strategy.
At the Indonesian premiere of the NEW MINI Clubman, Karen Lim, President Director BMW Group Indonesia, explained about the realignment of the brand and the NEW MINI Clubman: 'Since its creation in 1959, the MINI brand has always stood for ideas, inspiration and passion. That will not change. The New MINI Clubman is the symbol of our refined brand philosophy. We will open ourseleves up to new ideas and new business areas. We will develop the brand's visual identity. We are expanding our products in the premium compact class, which will attract new customers and even more avid MINI fans. I firmly believe that this comprehensive realignment will enable us to continue the MINI Brand's unique success story'.
The New MINI Clubman offers the best everyday practicality, long distance suitability, versatility and ride comfort ever seen in a MINI. “With four doors and the characteristic split doors at the rear, five fully-fledged seats and a generously sized, versatile interior, the New MINI Clubman meets all the requirements of the premium compact class in terms of functionality in its own unconventional way. Individual style, outstanding driving fun and the quality level of a premium automobile make it an exceptional phenomenon that will appeal to additional target groups and give them a taste of the distinctive MINI feeling” added Karen.
Exterior design: distinctive proportions, typical brand features, innovative details.
The mature character of the New MINI Clubman is reflected in dimensions that are significantly larger than the predecessor model, a distinctive body concept, high-quality materials and finish quality and also new features in the areas of drive, suspension comfort, safety, controls and connectivity based on the latest MINI generation. It is also the largest representative of the new MINI generation, outstripping the MINI 5 door.
The latest addition to the MINI family also features split doors at the rear, consisting of two side-opening wings. These effectively give the New MINI Clubman a unique status as a six-door model, emphasising its outstanding versatility in typical brand style. For the first time, the New MINI Clubman combines this leading-edge concept with the functional qualities of a modern automobile in the compact segment.
The New MINI Clubman is 27 centimetres longer and 9 centimetres wider than its predecessor, while its wheelbase is 10 centimetres larger. Its luggage compartment has a volume of 360 litres, which can be extended to as much as 1.250 litres by folding down the rear backrest with a 40:20:40 split. These dimensions create a stylish, individual and exclusive appearance. The car is also extremely agile, and - thanks to clever space utilisation in typical MINI style – boasts a roomy interior as well. Classic design features and its appealing style mark the New MINI Clubman as part of the brand's model family while at the same time setting it clearly apart from its competitors.
For optimum visibility: LED headlamps, adaptive light distribution, and LED fog light.
The New MINI Clubman comes with LED headlights and fog lights. These LED units emit bright, white light for both the low and high beam. They are surrounded by an LED daylight driving ring, the lower section of which reaches down to the white turn indicators. In conjunction with the LED headlamps, the rear light clusters also come as LED units.
New MINI features: Air Curtains and Air Breathers optimise air ducting.
The aerodynamic properties of the New MINI Clubman are optimised by means of precisely conceived air ducting elements - applied to the brand for the first time. The so-called Air Curtains consist of narrow, vertically arranged openings in the outer sections of the lower air inlet. From here, air is selectively channelled around the wheel arches. It flows along the wheels with reduced turbulence, escaping once again through Air Breathers in the rear section of the side panels. A model-specific roof spoiler also helps lower aerodynamic drag.
Split doors and rear lights in novel design.
The split doors with their striking metal surrounds are the most striking feature at the rear of the New MINI Clubman. The split doors are opened by means of a dual-section door handle finished in chrome. Non-contact opening of the split doors is possible in combination with the Comfort Access function, which is standard for the models offered in Indonesia. If the driver has the car key on them, it is sufficient to make a foot movement under the rear apron to trigger automatic opening.
Meanwhile, the newly designed, horizontally positioned rear lights are integrated in the wing doors and have chrome surrounds. Additional lights arranged below the doors perform a signalling function when the split doors are open. A powerful impression is also emphasised by a contour edge in the rear apron as well as the downward increase in width at the rear that is typical of MINI. The New MINI Cooper S Clubman has an aerodynamically optimised bumper including a diffuser element and two exhaust tailpipes that are set wide apart.
Powerful engines with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology.
Engines with the latest generation of MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology power the two model variants of the New MINI Clubman. The technology package of the petrol engines comprises turbocharging, petrol direct injection with centrally placed injectors, fully variable valve control in the form of VALVETRONIC and variable camshaft control on the intake and exhaust side (double VANOS). This combination gives the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine of the MINI Cooper S Clubman particularly sporty performance figures. Peak output of 192 hp is achieved and a maximum torque of 280 Nm goes on stream at just 1.250 rpm. The New MINI Cooper S Clubman sprints in 7.1 seconds from standing to 100 km/h, reaching a top speed of 228 km/h. These figures are combined with an average fuel consumption of 17.2 km/l and a CO2 emissions level of 134 grams per kilometre (EU test cycle figures).
Robust delivery is also a characteristic of the 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine in the MINI Cooper Clubman. With a peak output of 136 hp and a maximum torque of 220 Nm at 1.250 rpm, this engine also ensures sporty performance figures. 9.1 seconds is all that is required with Steptronic for acceleration from zero to 100 km/h, and it has a top speed of 205 km/h. The average fuel consumption of the New MINI Cooper Clubman is 19.6 km/l, while its level of CO2 emissions is 118 grams per kilometre (EU test cycle figures).
The 4-cylinder engines in the models are complemented by an 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission for the MINI Cooper S Clubman and a 6- speed Steptronic transmission for the MINI Cooper Clubman. This all results in a high level of shift comfort, as well as optimized shift dynamics for sporty driving. In addition to the auto start/stop function that can also be used in conjunction with the automatic transmission and extensive measures to optimise weight and aerodynamic drag, the MINIMALISM Technology in all of the New MINI Clubman models also features a shift point display, brake energy regeneration, active cooling air flaps and needs-oriented control of the fuel and coolant pump as well as other ancillary components. The MINI Driving Modes are activated by means of a rotary switch at the base of the gear or selector lever. In addition to the standard MID mode, there is a choice of SPORT and GREEN modes.
Enhanced go-kart feeling: characteristic MINI suspension technology with completely newly-developed components.
The large track width and long wheelbase of the MINI Clubman benefit the model-specific design of the suspension. The car's weight has been reduced by the use of aluminium swivel bearings as well as front axle supports and wishbones in highly rigid steel. The particularly stiff wheel suspension on the rear axle also enhances the agile handling properties of the MINI Clubman. In addition, spatial economy is achieved by the separate arrangement of springs and dampers, impacting positively on the room available at the rear and in the luggage compartment.
Complete safety features are available in the New MINI Clubman. These include the anti-lock system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), Cornering Brake Control (CBC) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), which also includes a pull-away assistant, braking readiness, dry braking function and fading compensation, And DTC mode (Dynamic Traction Control), which permits controlled slip so as to facilitate pulling off on loose sand. The New MINI Cooper S Clubman is fitted as standard with 18-inch light alloy wheels Star Spoke in black or silver and the 17-inch light alloy wheels Vent Spoke in black or silver are available for the New MINI Cooper Clubman.
Interior: generous space, new design.
Five fully-fledged seats, convenient access, plenty of freedom to move for all occupants and a versatile luggage compartment are some of the most prominent features of the MINI Clubman. The generous space and comprehensive redesign of the interior ensure that the brand’s hallmark driving fun can be enjoyed in a unique ambience. A clear signal of the more sophisticated character of the MINI Clubman is its exceptionally wide instrument panel.
The central instruments are integrated in the instrument panel of the New MINI Clubman in especially harmonious style. Fitted with a 8.8 colour screen in the MINI Cooper S Clubman (6.5 for the MINI Cooper Clubman), the instrument panel serves as a display for infotainment, phone and navigation (standard for the MINI Cooper S Clubman) functions and has an LED ring surround which can optionally respond to the current situation on the road and to specific operating procedures by means of an interactive lighting display. The selection and control of all the functions is facilitated by a Controller in the centre console which comes in conjunction with the Radio MINI Visual Boost (Wired package for the MINI Cooper S Clubman). The speedometer and engine speed display are located in the instrument cluster on the steering column, as in the New MINI 3-Door and the New MINI 5-Door.
New options: atmospheric lighting, electrically adjustable seats.
With the new MINI Yours Interior Styles (standard for MINI Cooper S Clubman), this striking door trim design is highlighted by means of indirectly illuminated decorative strips. These are combined with interior trim finishers available in various types.
The lighting package, with LED interior and ambient lighting, also creates an atmospheric ambience. Together with the special equipment feature MINI Excitement Package, this offers continuously variable colour changes and has also been extended to include a light display that is activated when opening and closing the car. On activation of the remote key, the MINI logo is projected onto the ground for 20 seconds from an additional light source in the exterior mirror on the driver's side. These special features are standard for the models offered in Indonesia.
Another new option is the electrical adjustment of the driver and front passenger seats, including a memory function on the driver's side (standard for MINI Cooper S Clubman). For the first time, seat height, longitudinal position, seat surface angle, backrest angle and lumbar setting can be adjusted at the press of a button.
The integrated MINI safety concept also includes a standard fitting of six airbags, three-point automatic belts on all seats including belt tensioners, as well as adaptive belt force limiters at the front and ISOFIX children's seat attachments at the rear. Tyre pressure display for each individual wheel is also included as standard.
Low weight, stable passenger cell, comprehensive safety features.
The New MINI Clubman also offers intelligent lightweight construction, ensuring maximum safety, agility and acoustic comfort by means of a rigid but also weight-optimised body structure. Highly resilient load-bearing structures, deformation zones in optimum design and an extremely stable passenger cell provide an excellent basis for keeping impact energy away from passengers and ensuring maximum occupant protection. Meanwhile, impact absorbers and precisely defined deformation elements ensure optimised pedestrian protection.
MINI Head-Up Display and MINI Connected.
The New MINI Cooper S Clubman also comes with the Head-Up Display which extends above the steering column, as well as the complete MINI Connected in-car infotainment program. In intelligent style, the MINI Connected XL Journey Mate helps the driver plan journeys and also provides individualised information and routes, as required. Numerous other social network and infotainment functions can be integrated in the car by means of smartphone apps, allowing them to be used intuitively, conveniently and safely via the MINI operating system. These are available for both the Apple iPhone and for smartphones using the Android operating system.
The MINI Head-Up-Display promotes concentration on the road, as it projects driving-related information onto an extendible display in the upper area of the instrument panel between the windscreen and steering wheel. Here it can be read quickly and conveniently without the driver having to divert their eyes from the road. The information that can be shown includes speed in figures, navigation directions in the form of arrow graphics and junction sketches, Check Control messages and entertainment program details such as radio channels and track titles.
The New MINI Clubman also encompasses features such as electrically adjustable exterior mirrors, the MINI Radio including AUX-IN socket and USB interface as well as a Bluetooth hands-free phone facility. A wide range of high-end options in the areas of comfort, functionality and individuality are available to allow drivers to match the car precisely to their own personal style. A panorama sunroof and Harman- Kardon HiFi loudspeaker system are also available for the New MINI Cooper S Clubman. Other options include a sports leather steering wheel (for the MINI Cooper Clubman) and a John Cooper Works leather steering wheel (for the MINI Cooper S Clubman).
MINI reinvents itself - with new corporate design.
MINI is a brand that captures and drives the spirit of the times. It is in the brand’s DNA to constantly reinvent itself. Now is the time for another such reinvention, as MINI creates a new visual identity for itself. At the heart of the brand design is the unique brand and product experience MINI has always stood for. The original idea behind the MINI design was to develop a highly-efficient vehicle focused on the essentials, but which had the agility to offer a one-of-a-kind driving experience.
This combination of clear, emotional design with a focus on the essential will now also define the brand’s new look. A two-dimensional logo, new typography and new tonality underscore the basic idea of clarity and authenticity and will ensure the brand continues to shape the spirit of the times.
