Second generation MINI Clubman teased

The second generation MINI Clubman is being teased in the attached image ahead of a full reveal later this year. Set to become the biggest MINI ever made, the new Clubman will have four side doors along with two barn-style split rear doors granting access to the biggest trunk ever seen on a MINI. The second generation Clubman was previewed last year through a near-production concept which was 4.23 meters long, 1.84 meters wide and 1.45 meters tall. If the production version will carry over these dimensions, this means it will be 26 cm longer, 16 cm wider and 2.4 cm taller compared to its predecessor.

As you would expect, the 2016 MINI Clubman will use the same UKL platform and is going to be powered by a variety of 3- and 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines. It will be available upon launch in a hotter Clubman S version with 192 PS and 280 Nm (300 Nm with overboost) generated by a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo. The same engine will also be found underneath the hood of the Clubman John Cooper Works where it will churn 231 PS and 320 Nm.

The second generation MINI Clubman will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and will likely go on sale this fall.
