Mini, the iconic car brand, now owned by BMW, is all set to introduce yet another member to its product line up in India. This is to include the launch of the five-door 2016 Clubman hatchback in our country. The Mini range already includes the Mini 3-door, Mini 5-door, Mini Convertible and the Mini Countryman. The Mini Clubman is going to be the most premium offering from the UK based automaker and also to come loaded with a plethora of creature comforts and features on board.
The 2016 Mini Clubman price in india is expected to be slotted around INR 40 to 45 lakh (ex-showroom). The engine specifications of the Mini Clubman are to include two petrol and two diesel engines in the international spec model. However, when it comes to India, there is a chance that it only gets one out of the each variant. These will be four-cylinder motors producing around 150 Bhp at the least. The transmission responsibilities are to be handled by either a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic one. Read Also: India bound 2017 MINI Countryman Revealed!

Talking about the Mini Clubman’s exterior, the front end is defined by circular headlamps with chrome surrounds, the hexagonal contours of the radiator grille and the sculpted 'power dome' of the bonnet. The wide lower air inlet highlights the car's solid and purposeful stance, with the bumper trim serving as a number plate carrier and finished in high-gloss black. Towards the back, the Clubman gets large tail-lamps which are unique to this model along with a split open tail-gate.
On the inside, the Mini Clubman oozes of luxury with its leather wrapped upholstery and the otherwise use of premium materials. The centre console gets a circular infotainment system and placed between which are the controls for the air-con control module. Due to its humongous dimensions, one is to find no lack of space inside the Mini Clubman.
