The Classic trim is reintroduced in the 2024 Mini Countryman. Customers can upgrade to Nanuq White or Midnight Black II from the standard Chili Red paint color. Moreover, Mini debuts a Final Edition with accents in copper and sage green, but fewer than 100 will be offered in the United States.
The John Cooper Works version of the Clubman is particularly entertaining to drive. We like how quickly torque is delivered off the line, how sensitive the brakes are, and how secure the suspension is.
We were astonished by the vehicle’s steadiness, precise driving, and powerful engine when we even drove it on the Autobahn. Despite some turbo lag off the mark, the S model has enough oomph to make you smile and is a fantastic canyon carver.
The Clubman was designed with some utility in mind because it is a wagon. The interior has enough room for four adults, and the second row has plenty of head and legroom, even for taller people.
Mini is not kidding when it refers to something as a “Final Edition.” The last of the unusual station wagons with barn-style rear doors, the 2024 Mini Clubman, will be sold in February 2024. Between the two-door Cooper and four-door Countryman EVs, there may be a place for an all-electric Mini, but it won’t be referred to as a Clubman.
Stefanie Wurst, the president of the Mini brand, said in a Top Gear interview that the Clubman wagon’s demise was due to a lack of sales. She added, “If you look at the sales stats worldwide, the Countryman doubles the Clubman.
I wouldn’t say the space is full, but we will not have a Clubman.” Wurst also claims that a compact Mini is on the way, but the Countryman and the Aceman, an all-electric crossover model for Mini that was unveiled as a concept in 2022, already control the five-door market.
You may now order the 2024 Mini Clubman Final Edition from your local Mini dealer, but supply is limited. Although it is based on the Cooper S All4 Clubman and carries a somewhat hefty price tag of $47,145, fewer than 100 of the Final Edition Clubman models are available in the United States.
There will only be 1,969 of these produced worldwide as a tribute to the first year Mini released the Cooper wagon model. The manufacture of the oddball six-door Cooper Clubman will end in February 2024, so you only have until that month to place an order, even if you don’t want the Final Edition.
