Yesterday we brought you the Full Mini Monty including all the details we had on the Clubman... at the time. Now we can make it a Fuller Mini Monty by telling you that the European Mini Clubman will sell there for £14,235, a £1,210 increase over a comparable two-door Mini. With current exchange rates, that's about $28,900 in U.S. currency. Gulp.

A better way of deducing what the Clubman will cost us in the U.S. might be to look at the percentage of price difference between European hatchback and Clubman models. In that case, a European Clubman costs about 9.1% more than a two-door hatchback. With a U.S. spec, base-model Cooper starting at about $18,050, that could mean a comparably equipped U.S. Clubman might come in under $19,700. Much better, but all speculation, of course.

Starting Nov. 10, Brits will be able to choose between the diesel version at £15,400 and a higher-performance petrol engine with 173bhp at £17,210. Our sale date has yet to be announced, and we haven't heard any plans of a diesel option here. Yet.

      Do you mean that there's still a possibility of a diesel MC in the USA in 2008? Or we just don't know if they'll ever bring the diesel models to the USA at all? Or is "here" somewhere else?

      About the US$ cost.
      You do know in UK, the price of the car includes the tax. + when they get it over here, the big (additional) cost is the shipping, which shouldnt be much more given its about the same size.

      By my estimate from the base 1210 pounds + considering end-of-year currency estimate (dollar/pound - mini's made in UK), I think it will cost an additional US$ 2,541, from the base mini Cooper - bringing the total to about 21,000$.

      My guess is Clubman S would cost round about US$24,000 , placing it in competition with the Volvo C30 Turbo5.
