The two new variants of the MINI Clubman comprise the updated MINI Clubman and the MINI John Cooper Works Clubman 306HP. BMW Group Malaysia also launched the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman 306HP.

He said the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman 306HP is priced at RM378,888.
"The goal is always to deliver more vehicles, we also always want to perform better than previous years. This position is a great result for a small premium brand like MINI, but obviously we want to move upwards," Sashi told reporters here today at the launch of the new MINI models.
Sashi said these new MINI models are imported from MINI's production facility at UK's Oxford city. He said Malaysia is the first market in Southeast Asia to see the new MINI Clubman model.
