The all-new 2016 Mini Clubman has been teased ahead of its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
Codenamed F54, the second-generation Clubman is said to follow the mould of the Clubman Concept that was previewed last year in Geneva. It is expected to measure approximately 260 mm longer, 161 mm wider and 24 mm taller than the outgoing model, making it the largest model in the brand’s history.
Riding on the same front-wheel-drive platform as the BMW 2 Series, the new Clubman will come as a conventional four-door model, ditching the current rear ‘suicide’ door. Around the back, the car retains the infamous twin-hinged split ‘barn doors’.
Elsewhere, the Mini Clubman is set to feature the 2 Series’ independent rear suspension while engines will likely come in the form of three- and four-cylinder in petrol and diesel versions. All-wheel-drive and three-cylinder plug-in hybrid variants are said to be in the pipeline as well.
