The estimated retail price (on the road without insurance) of the MINI Clubman Sterling Edition is RM 268,888 and comes with the MINI 4 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty with Free Scheduled Service. It is also covered by MINI Malaysia’s newest 5 Years Roadside Assistance program, available for all new MINI vehicles with a comprehensive list of services that include a 24-Hour, 365-days-a-year Accident and Help on the Phone and On-the-Spot Hotline, Free Towing Services and when needed (over 200 km from your residence), Replacement Vehicle, Accommodation, Mobility Services Solutions as well as Repatriation services.
Mr. Han Sang Yun, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said, in introducing the Clubman Sterling Edition, “The MINI Clubman was the car that created a new chapter in the story of MINI. Not only did it revolutionise the brand by taking the MINI appeal a notch higher, it also introduced us to the new creative class social segment. Today, the New MINI Clubman Sterling Edition, is a modern take on one of the most iconic cars in the world. Limited to only 20 units made available in Malaysia, this MINI is exceptionally well-made with unique versatility to its body concept and individual style. Known as the car for the gentlemen of the modern age, this limited edition MINI is bound to excite and make its mark in the premium compact segment”.
The MINI Clubman Sterling Edition wears the Melting Silver body color with subtle Matte Black Jack mirror caps and roof décor. This is complemented by Black Union Jacks on the side scuttles and roof, paying homage to its glorious British origins. The wheels are bespoke 18” MINI Yours Masterpiece in burnish black.
The cabin wears a combination of Indigo Blue and Pure Burgundy. The Pure Burgundy interior is made available with MINI Yours Illuminated Interior, which allows you to choose from 12 preset colors to the trims, to match your mood. The seats are luxurious Chester Leather upholstery in Indigo Blue crafted to deliver a smooth feel of the leather against your hand with its diagonal quilting. The steering wheel is wrapped in soft Nappa leather with a hand-finished aluminum colored stitching; the bottom of the steering wheel also houses the signature Union Jack insignia.
Additionally, the Clubman Sterling Edition is equipped with the Parking Assist function which automatically steers the MINI into any parallel parking space, with you working the gears, throttle and brake pedals. There is also a rear-view camera for reversing into and out of tight spots.
There is also the MINI Connected infotainment which features over 30 million songs which can be streamed live to the MINI. Intuitive Spotify Interface, and other control functions, on 6.5” high resolution LCD screen are easily accessed with the MINI controller which is small, but comes packed with features; you rotate the stick to scroll through menus, tilt side to side to move around the interface and then press to select items. Additionally, standard readings such as current fuel consumption, current fuel range and last known locations can be viewed via the MINI Connected phone App.
The MINI Clubman Sterling Edition will be on display at the MINIFest in Desa ParkCity on 20 August (Sunday). MINIFest 2017 will be the first-ever MINI-styled marketplace where vendors and owners will be selling fashion, accessories and lifestyle items right from the boot of a range of MINI vehicles. The festival will also have a host of activities for family and friends to enjoy, including test drives, hot air balloon rides, food trucks as well as car boot flash sales. For entertainment, MINI Malaysia will also be inviting bands and DJs to perform throughout that day.
