The most recent Mini Clubman range was launched in Europe towards the end of 2015 and a Mini Clubman All4 earlier this year (2016). Now there’s another automotive sibling.

It’s the Mini One D Clubman.

The newbie has all the specifications offered across the Clubman range, among them satnav, DAB radio, Bluetooth, cruise control and Mini Connected communications.

Mini UK sees the One D Clubman as being “of particular interest” to fleet and business buyers, especially given its low 99g/km CO2 emissions on the combined cycle to keep down the extra pollution charge in South Africa as well.

The model’s split rear doors – same as those on the Minivan and timber-beamed Traveller of the original Minis of the early 1960’s – have been retained, along with four passenger doors.

“The resulting car,” the Mini media release adds, “is a powerful fusion of sleek lines, innovative touches and first-rate materials with generous space for five people, excellent luggage capacity and classic Mini driving characteristics.”

First deliveries in Europe will be in April 2016.

The One D has a 1496cc three-cylinder turbodiesel engine capable of 85kW at 4000 rpm and 270Nm from 1750-2250rpm to provide a 10.4sec 0-100km/h dash and top speed of about 190km/h.

Average fuel consumption is listed by Mini as 3.85 litres/100km/h.

Unfortunately this model will not, according to BMW SA, reach South Africa – but we thought you would like to know about it.
