A new trim level adds cosmetic flourishes to Mini’s estate, but with no mechanical differences or extra kit it’s an affordable luxury, not a necessity
Mini buyers take a favourable view on customisation. Every eight in 10 Mini Clubmans are specced with the optional Chili Pack added – highlights of which include 17in alloys and interior mood lighting – and the success of that optional package has lead to the creation of the Black Pack.Initially only available in the Clubman estate, it can be ticked on the options list of the entry-level Cooper and Cooper D models. It adds black 17in wheels, black bonnet stripes and a piano black trim inside.Those options have been available before, but opting for them as part of the new pack costs £700 rather than £900. That brings the price up to £21,430 in total for this Clubman, which gets sat-nav, cruise control, air conditioning and a turbocharged 1.5-litre engine with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. Mini’s stance is to sell as many as is demanded – it expects one in every 10 Clubmans to be chosen with the Black Pack.
