Currently reading: Mini Clubman City revealed as new sub-£20k entry-level model
Sat-nav and parking sensors are included on newest Clubman trim to attract fleet and business buyers

Mini has launched its latest Mini Clubman trim, City, that aims to attract fleet and business buyers. 

The name gives a nod to the classic Mini range, which featured a City trim. The Clubman City gets sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth as standard and takes the entry-level price of the Clubman down to £19,995, making it a more attractive offering in terms of benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax for business users than the £21,085 1.5 Cooper. 

Emissions are as low as 109g/km on the diesel-engined car, rising to 130g/km and 131g/km on the petrol automatic and manual versions respectively. These are claimed to return 49.6mpg and 48.7mpg, while the diesel returns 68.9mpg. The diesel model’s emissions are the lowest of any car in the Clubman range. 

Mini’s head of corporate sales, Steve Roberts, said: “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. The Clubman, one of the brand’s most versatile vehicles, offers all of these benefits alongside a great standard specification for the corporate market.”

The variant launches amid falling fleet and business registrations in the UK across the year so far. Up to the end of June, business registrations declined by 11.6% compared with the same period in 2017, although for the month of June they grew by almost the same percentage. Fleet registrations fell by 6.4% in January-June. 

The year-to-date fleet and business decreases are worse than the total registration year-on-year decline of 6.3% in the first half of the year. Despite the focus on fleet and business customers, the Clubman City will be available to private buyers as well.

Clubman City? How could BMW

Clubman City? How could BMW miss the obvious oxymoron? But ofcourse, the history of Mini is to be abused not respected.

The original Mini City

The original Mini City was devoid of all extras. No radio, keep fit windows, no headrests, drum brakes, 4 speed ‘box. I saw a Metro City at a display last year and that even had its glovebox deleted. In the 80s poverty spec really was minimal.

Load room...

Would have made sense to try an offer a flat load area, the Rear Seats still don’t fold flat, and that’s the case in most Cars nowadays........!
