MINI has released new details about the 2016 Clubman following a preview earlier this year.

Set to go on sale in Germany on Halloween, the redesigned Clubman is essentially an enlarged version of the Cooper five-door as it's 27cm longer, 9cm wider and rides on a wheelbase that has been stretched 10cm.  The larger dimensions create a more accommodating cabin and cargo compartment which can hold up to 1250 liters (44.1 cubic feet) of luggage when the rear seats are folded down.

On the performance front, the entry-level One D Clubman has a 1.5-liter three-cylinder diesel engine with 116 PS (85 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque.  It's not exactly fast as it takes 10.4 seconds to accelerate from 0-100 km/h but on the upside it averages between 3.8- and 3.9 L/100km.

The Cooper D Clubman is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine which develops 150 PS (110 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque.  This allows the model to run from 0-100 km/h in 8.5 - 8.6 seconds

The most powerful diesel variant is the Cooper SD Clubman which features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 190 PS (140 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.  It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.4 seconds.

On the petrol side, the entry-level One Clubman has an anemic 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that churns out 102 PS (75 kW) and 180 Nm (132 lb-ft) of torque.  Acceleration is unsurprisingly slow as the dash from 0-100 km/h takes between 11.1 - 11.7 seconds.

Moving up to the Cooper Clubman rewards buyers with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 136 PS (100 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque - 230 Nm (169 lb-ft) with overboost.  In terms of performance, the car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 9.1 seconds and return between 5.1 - 5.3 L/100km.

Last but not least, the Cooper S Clubman has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 192 PS (141 kW) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque - 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) with overboost.  This allows the model to run from 0-100 km/h in as little as 7.1 seconds.
