The newest member of the MINI family - 2019 MINI Cooper S Clubman has been given a multiple refreshments, splashed with a brand new colour choice at the grand price of RM 298,888 - imported from Oxford, England.
MINI’s facelift Clubman now sports new LED headlights and fog lamps. The LED lamps are a surrounded with white light rings that serves as both daytime running lights and turn signals.
Perhaps the most distinctive change on the 2019 MINI Clubman is the redesigned air inlets on the front radiator grille.
Mechanically, no changes were made to the 2-litre MINI TwinPower turbo engine that produces 192 PS and 280 Nm of torque that is capable of make the 0-100 km/h sprint in 7.2 seconds and cruise at a top speed of 228 km/h.
But MINI engineers have swap out the previous car's 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission for a new 7-speed dual-clutch unit, which MINI says offers faster gear changes, better comfort and also optimised efficiency with a claimed fuel consumption of 6.2-litres of fuel per 100 km.
The new transmission is operated via a new shift-by-wire gear lever that returns to its original position after switching between Drive, Reverse and Park, just like BMW models.
On the inside, MINI has decorated the Clubman with MINI Yours Walknappa Leather Lounge Carbon Black seat upholstery complimented by a steering wheel wrapped in the same leather.
New on the inside is the new music experience that comes in a form of 12 Harmon Kardon speakers that are exclusively customised for the new Clubman.
Good news for the tech wizards as the Clubman now also comes with the latest host of MINI Connected app.
So not only do you have access to the Concierge Service and the services of MINI Online but also the use of Apple CarPlay.
Another notable new feature on the Clubman is the ability to send navigational information from your phone to your car via MINI Remote Services.
This facelift 2019 MINI Clubman comes in 6 colour options including the brand new and very spicy Indian Summer Red.
