The MINI Clubman, through its truly surprising design, stands out clearly from conventional concepts and categories. Unmistakably a MINI from every angle, the MINI Clubman, through its unique rear end and exceptional proportions, captures maximum awareness right from the start.

The MINI Clubman is truly fascinating through its qualities typical of the brand and the many possibilities it has to offer. At the wheel of this unique car the driver will enjoy pure driving pleasure with the same sporting performance and thrilling behaviour as in every MINI. And behind the front seats the passengers at the rear will discover a new MINI experience, with enhanced inner values and extroverted flair. For the combination of that typical MINI feeling with lounge-like seating comfort at the rear, flexible use of space available and a unique door concept makes the MINI Clubman quite unmistakably an unparalleled car in its own right.

The unique character of the MINI Clubman is obvious at first sight. The roofline of the car extends across all three pillars, merging smoothly into the striking rear section where the innovative, two-piece split-door with its two halves opening to either side sets not only an optical highlight through its frame in contrasting colour. The generous luggage compartment may be further extended in flexible configuration, offering very easy and convenient loading options thanks to the two rear doors.

A further important point is that the MINI Clubman is entering the market as a five-seater, the passengers at the rear enjoying 80 millimetres or 3.15" more legroom than in the "regular" MINI. Access to the rear "lounge" is facilitated by an additional door, the Clubdoor hinged at the back on the right-hand side of the car. Through its diversity alone, the MINI Clubman provides an up-to-date interpretation of traditional shooting brake concepts incorporating the smooth flow of the rear section and the steep rear end to highlight both the car's sportiness and function.

All this makes the MINI Clubman the modern successor to three legendary classics, the Morris Mini Traveller, the Austin Mini Countryman, and the Mini Clubman Estate, thrilling customers side-by-side with the original Mini, the grandfather of all compact cars, back in the 1960s.
