MINI launches the new Clubman

The new MINI Clubman is based on the new five-door Mini, with proper front and rear passenger doors, however it boasts an extra 27cm of length and 9cm of width over the standard car.

The Clubman is bigger than an Audi A1 and, thanks to a shooting-brake profile ending in split rear doors, it’s also much more practical.

It offers 360 liters of luggage space with the rear seats in place and as each of those seats can be folded down individually, there are a host of solutions on offer for those struggling to transport everything from shopping to skis. With all 3 seats down that space jumps to a massive 1250 liters

The split rear doors will also get remote opening and closing while slightly more egocentric elements include projectors integrated into the wing mirrors that will shine a Mini logo-shaped light on the ground when the doors are open as a way of illuminating the ground at night.
