2020 Clubman vs 2021 Clubman

The 2020 Clubman vs. the 2021 Clubman: What's the Difference?

At Tom Bush MINI, we know that buying a new car in the Jacksonville area can sometimes be frustrating. It can be easy to think, "Why would I buy a new car when the one from the previous year is virtually the same?"

But the people at MINI are different. Each year, MINI continues to innovate with their models, and the Countryman is no different. Let's dive into the differences between the 2020 MINI Cooper Clubman and the 2021 MINI Cooper Clubman so that you can determine which is best for your drive around Daytona. Comparisons are between front-wheel drive models.

Comparing Performance

First up is performance. This includes any differences between the engine and the transmission.

2020 Clubman

The 2020 MINI Cooper Clubman has a 2.0-Liter intercooled turbo premium unleaded I4 engine, giving the ability to provide great performance for cars of its class.

The standard transmission is a seven-speed STEPTRONIC Sport DCT, which is great for cruises around Fruit Cove. This transmission provides the 2020 Clubman model with low gear, which is great for acceleration, like when you want to zip along busy streets.

2021 Clubman

The 2021 MINI Cooper Clubman's engine is the same as the previous year, since it provided fantastic performance.

The transmission, though, has been refined to be more efficient that its predecessor. With a standard six-speed manual transmission, you'll have a nice, smooth ride around Jacksonville Beach. This manual transmission provides the new Clubman model with high gear, which is perfect for cruising at higher speeds on the highway.

Comparing Safety

Next up is the safety features. MINI continues to upgrade its newer models each year with top-of-the-line safety features so that you can be sure that you and your family in Palm Coast are safe no matter where you're driving.

2020 Clubman

With the 2020 Clubman model, you can expect some standard safety features to be equipped. The forward collision warning system will bring to your attention anything in front of your car so that you have time to react accordingly. The lane departure warning feature will let you know when you're drifting out of your lane so that you can correct.

2021 Clubman

Thanks to some advances in technology over the past year, MINI has given the new Clubman model an upgrade. The lane departure warning are both the same, alerting the driver when the vehicle is in danger so that they can react accordingly. The difference, though, is the addition of the adaptive cruise control feature. Adaptive cruise control is an advanced system which allows your car to automatically control its speed so that you are always at a safe distance from the car you're following.

Gas Mileage

Gas mileage is one of the most important things to consider when you're on the hunt for a car to purchase. How do these two models, new and old, compare in terms of gas mileage?

2020 Clubman

Right off the bat, we're going to tell you that the 2020 model does a little bit better in this regard. With an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon City and 34 miles per gallon Hwy, you'll get to where you need to go in Riverside without breaking the bank at the gas pump.

2021 Clubman

Even though the previous year's model beats the 2021 Clubman in terms of gas mileage, this year's is still nothing to scoff at. The EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon City and 32 miles per gallon Hwy will save you plenty of money on long trips to Saint Augustine.
