The new Mini Clubman Concept will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The Mini Clubman Concept features six doors in total: four conventional doors for entering the cabin and two more forming a vertically split tailgate. Rest of the design is a typical MINI styling, with the hexagonal radiator grille, elliptical shaped lights and floating roof.
The new Mini Clubman, is expected to go on sale in international markets by the end of the year. The concept seen here concept features some exaggerated exterior proportions, but it is claimed the concept bears resemblance to the production model.
On the inside, the car features the familiar MINI shapes and colors, but in a more premium way. Soft leather is used for the trim with silver accents featuring on the dashboard and door inserts. The traditional Mini round center dial houses a high-resolution screen.
Coming to the exteriors, the car measures 4223 mm in length, 1844 mm in width and 1450 mm in height. The concept’s overall is highly enhanced by the recessed headlights with daytime-running lights that form a continuous ring within the housing and 19-inch wheels.
The car rides on the stretched version of BMW’s front-wheel drive UKL platform, which made its debt in the 2014 MINI Cooper. The UKL platform has been designed for both three and four pot motors. Powering the Clubman will be the 1.5-liter three pot and 2.0-liter four pot petrol and diesel mills mated to either a standard six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic gearbox.
