2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Mini Clubman Concept image

BMW’s British subsidiary, Mini, is ramping up the reveals for the new generation of its… Mini model – this time publicly unveiling the near production ready concept of the Clubman version.

After the Mini hatchback unveiling, next in line is the bigger Clubman model, which features a big change from the outgoing model – foregoing the use of the rather unorthodox lateral rear door in favor of four frameless front-hinged doors. Fortunately, the model will keep its fancy appel, as the rear-split doors have been retained. The soon to be in production Clubman will also become the biggest Mini model in production, snatching the title from the Countryman with its 4223/1844/1450 mm dimensions.

While the exterior looks just like it’s ready for mass production, the interior is more suited to the concept moniker, with extensive use of premium materials – while the overall design will certainly be mirrored in the production model. No word on the engines, but certainly the Clubman will simply take for granted all the offerings from the hatchback version.
