KUALA LUMPUR: MINI Malaysia refreshes the Cooper S Clubman and introduces a more potent John Cooper Works (JCW) Clubman performance variant.

At RM298,888 (on-the-road without insurance), the latest Clubman is also accompanied by a four-year unlimited mileage warranty with free scheduled service and a five-year roadside assistance package.

Colour options include Indian Summer Red (new), New British Racing Green, Pepper White, Thunder Grey, Melting Silver and Starlight Blue.

Powered by a 2.0-litre (1,998cc) turbocharged engine producing 192hp from 5,000 to 6,000rpm and 280Nm of torque from 1,350 to 4,600rpm, the engine has been gifted with an automatic start-stop system.

Thanks to a seven-speed Steptronic dual-clutch sports transmission, accelerating from 0 to 100kph takes 7.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 228kph - all while capable of consuming just 6.2 litres per 100km.

While rolling on 18-inch two-tone British spoke wheels with 225/40 series run-flat tyres, the front-wheel-driven Clubman can be further identified with a MINI Yours badge, piano-black roof and power-folding external mirror caps.

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have been equipped for the automatic headlights, daytime running lights, fog lights, Union Jack-designed rear light clusters and white dynamic indicators.

Access to the Carbon Black interior upholstery with an Anthracite headliner can be granted via a keyless-entry system with push-start button to reveal a 360-litre (expandable to 1,250 litres) boot as well as Frozen Blue illumination and Velour floor mats - all from the MINI Yours custom parts bin.

Owners will also find fitted, as standard, an interactive LED ring on the central instrument display, automatic dual-zone climate controls and electronic parking brake and steering system.

Also included are adaptive cruise control, powered sports seats with memory function, paddle-shifters, anti-dazzle rearview mirror and automatic wipers.

Entertainment comes from a 12-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system with Active Sound Design that's controlled by a 6.5-inch MINI Visual Boost LCD touchscreen display with a five-key controller, remote services, teleservices, navigation, connected services, intelligent emergency call, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port and Apply CarPlay.

For safety, the Clubman comes equipped with six airbags, anti-lock braking system with brake assist, cornering brake control, electronic brakeforce distribution and dynamic braking lights.

Further bolstering safety are dynamic stability control, traction control, an electronic differential lock control, pull-away assist, reverse camera, flat-tyre indicator and Attentive Assist.

As for the performance-oriented John Cooper Works (JCW) Clubman variant, the engine's output gets bumped up to a whopping 306hp from 5,000 to 6,250rpm and 450Nm from 1,750 to 4,500rpm.

Just like the output, the price too gets similarly bumped up to RM358,888 and includes all warranties and services found with the standard Cooper S Clubman.

With the up-tuned performance figures, acceleration from 0 to 100kph now takes 4.9 seconds and the top speed has been electronically limited to 250kph. Fuel consumption now stands at 7.7 litres per 100km on the combined cycle.

Now managing power to ALL4 wheels is an eight-speed transmission instead which has decided to tag its friends along - launch control and mechanical differential lock.

Due to the added performance, the wheels and braking system gets up-sized to 19-inch wheels wearing 225/35 run-flat tyres that try to partially hide the massive 18-inch discs with Chili Red callipers before dropping 10mm in ride-height due to the JCW Sport springs.

For better differentiation from the standard Clubman is the use of many JCW parts that include a 95mm exhaust system, aerodynamic kit, front and rear badges, rear spoiler side scuttles and a panoramic sunroof as well as Chili Red colour for the bonnet stripes, mirror caps and what's left of the roof.

The interior is upgraded with a larger 8.8-inch touchscreen MINI navigation system heads-up display and wireless charging, multi-function JCW leather steering wheel and a reverse camera that now possesses dynamic lines.

Other changes include JCW dial design, sports seats and door sill strips to act as constant reminders for its occupants that this is no ordinary Clubman.
