- The 2024 Mini Cooper S Clubman Final Edition is a send-off to the brand’s funky station wagon.
- The Final Edition will be limited to 1969 examples, a reference to the first year of the original Clubman.
- The Cooper S Clubman Final Edition features special graphics and badging to differentiate it from regular variants.
It comes as no surprise the Mini Cooper Clubman is headed for the big farm upstate. Sales have been in a downward spiral since they peaked in 2016, with the Clubman now the worst-selling vehicle Mini makes. Before officially bowing out, though, the Clubman is celebrating the past with the 2024 Mini Cooper S Clubman Final Edition.
The Final Edition pays homage to its roots by limiting production numbers to 1969 units, a figure that representative the first year Mini introduced the Clubman nameplate. The special edition is only available with three exterior paint options: Nanuq White, Enigmatic Black, and Melting Silver. Its interior features a special Final Edition color scheme.
Special graphics running along the hood and doors of the car are intended to accentuate the classic Mini shape of the Clubman. Unique copper-colored badging is also found outside and in, denoting the significance of the Final Edition.
Inside the new Clubman, the Final Edition maintains an earthy tone, with dark brown leather bolstering and anthracite fabric inserts in the seats. The door sills along with the base of the steering wheel read “Final Edition.” The floor mats and dashboard feature a serialized badge (“1 of 1969,” for example) denoting the number of each specific car in the limited-production run.
The Final Edition is mechanically unchanged from the standard Mini Clubman, with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing a peppy 189 horsepower. Mini overlooked the Clubman when it added the manual back to the Cooper last year, so all Clubmans have a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel is optional.
After the 2024 model year, the Clubman will be put to rest, but the gap left in Mini’s lineup will be filled by a production version of the incoming fully electric Aceman SUV. The Clubman’s life was a bit rocky when it came to sales, but we’re always sad to see another wagon leave the U.S. market. So long, Mini Clubman, you will be missed.
