MINI has introduced the Clubman concept at the Geneva Motor Show.
Designed to preview the next-generation model, the Clubman concept measures 26 centimeters longer and approximately 17 centimeters wider than the current model. This creates an accommodating cabin which can comfortably seat five adults.
Most of the concept's styling will be toned down for production but the 2015 Clubman will feature four traditional doors which should improve access to the cabin. Despite this nod to practicality, the split rear door will be retained because MINI says it makes loading cargo easier.
MINI declined to say what powers the concept but the production model will likely share engines with the Cooper. This means choices should include:
- A 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol with 134 bhp (100 kW) and 170 lb-ft (230 Nm) of torque
- A 1.5-liter three-cylinder diesel with 114 bhp (85 kW) and 199 lb-ft (269 Nm) of torque
- A 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol with 189 bhp (141 kW) and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) of torque
