Preparation is in full swing for the next generation MINI Clubman and our spies where on hand to catch a prototype as it was being transported on a trailer.

Preparation is in full swing for the next generation MINI Clubman and our spies where on hand to catch a prototype as it was being transported on a trailer.

The most striking change is the size of the model which has clearly grown for the new generation. This is to make room for the full sized conventional front-hinged rear-doors as a posed to the rear-hinged half-door seen in the first generation.

We expect further evolutionary styling changes to differentiate it from the current model and give it a unique look, but nothing too drastic.

The recently revealed MINI Cooper provides a glimpse of the probable engine options set to be employed in the Clubman. This could include the 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 189 bhp (141 kW) and 206 lb-ft of torque.

Watch this space as more information surfaces.
