This week Mini has brought the Clubman notion to the Geneva Motor Present, and even although it is officially a idea car for the functions of its appearance at the 2014 edition of the Salon Global de l’;Auto, the auto itself is generally production prepared behind the scenes.

The Clubman has grown unexpectedly for the 2015 model year redesign, to the level the place it may well be confused with the 5-door Hardtop, but that’;s a diverse model which we’;ll see later in the 12 months. Even though the Clubman now boasts 6 doors, it will be positioned somewhat differently from its 5-door Hardtop sibling, even even though in practice the 2 will be offering basically the very same package deal. The production Clubman will be positioned between the Countryman and the 5-door Hardtop models, and as the concept demonstrates it will be different on the outdoors from both designs.

The Clubman idea is a complete 10 inches longer than the recent model and 6.6 inches wider, which will make it a roomier option to the 5-door Hardtop, which itself was developed as a response to customers’; wishes for more area. The concept truly shares its platform with the BMW 2-series Energetic Tourer, which also manufactured an physical appearance at Geneva this week.

“The MINI Clubman Concept exhibits how the MINI Clubman could be taken a stage even more: more interior space, a better sense of high-end good quality and nevertheless even now clever, bold and distinctive. In quick: a lot more auto, more MINI,” mentioned Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design.

Mini has made no mention of the engines which will be supplied in the Clubman, even though we wouldn’;t be shocked to see the new 2.-liter 4-cylinder and one.5-liter 3-cylinder engines from the new 3-door Hardtop make an look in the production Clubman. The 2015 manufacturing version is expected to go on sale in the U.S. and other markets in the fall of 2014.
