The MINI Clubman was launched in 2007 as a bigger variant of the MINI hatch. The first generation was designed with an increased length, legroom, cargo space, and a longer wheelbase. It was manufactured and engineered by automobile giant BMW and was offered under the MINI marque.
In 2012, the automobile company previewed a concept car in the Geneva Motor Show named the MINI Clubvan, a commercial panel van. It went on sale in 2013 but was withdrawn in July of the same year due to low sales.
The second-generation Clubman debuted at the Frankfurt IAA Motor Show in 2015 bearing a revitalized look.
A distinct feature of this classy automobile is its elegant body which measures 4,253mm long, 1,800mm wide, and 1,441mm tall. It features a sporty silhouette with broad shoulders that goes well with its trademark dual chrome doors.
Displayed on its front are a curvy bumper, sleek fog lights, round headlights, and a chrome grille.
Its rear is affixed with LED tail lights, chrome-plated dual tailpipes, and the acclaimed split doors which can be opened using the Comfort Access System and Easy Opener function. The cargo space at the back allows 1,250-liters of load.
Its sophisticated cabin offers a roomy head and legroom that can accommodate five fully grown passengers. For its interior, the legendary automobile company allows buyers to specifically choose what type of leather and fabric will be used.
Drivers will be delighted with the multifunctional steering wheel and the elegant dashboard complete with features such as the speedometer with voice instructions, screen maps, and directional arrows.
