The three versions of the MINI Clubman are identical to their MINI hardtop brethren in their design and body structure up to the B-pillar. At the front, MINI iconic design elements include the characteristic, large round headlights, round corner lights, and the hexagon radiator grille. In addition, a chrome trim band extends around the entire car at shoulder level.
The MINI Clubman measures the same in width and hardly any higher than the MINI hardtop. The MINI Clubman design features many new renditions of classical design elements inspired by the classic models from the 60s. The specific design of the rear end is elegant, clear and very graphic, accentuating the compact rear look of the new model. The individual model variants are designated at the rear by their names “Cooper”, “Cooper D” and “Cooper S”, while the additional name “Clubman” is to be seen in the right-hand door cutout strip.

More than 40 color combinations for driving pleasure in beauty and style
Motoring in a MINI is more than just getting from A to B – it is an expression of ones’ lifestyle - a genuine attitude towards life.

The MINI Clubman now offers the enthusiast even greater options in personalizing her or her style, with more than 40 combinations of the exterior paintwork alone. This freedom of expression is enhanced by a wide range of accessories, options and special equipment geared specifically to the MINI Clubman.

With the interior, the MINI Clubman customer can choose his or her individual design, combining four interior colors and five Color Line variants with one another as desired. The seats are available not only in standard upholstery, but can also be chosen in a combination of cloth and leather as well as all-leather upholstery in a variety of styles and color schemes. A wide range of interior trim options helps to underline the premium character of the MINI Clubman. In addition to the two standard trim choices, customers can choose optional English Oak, Piano Black, Fluid Silver and Brushed Alloy interior trims.
Like the new generation of MINI hardtops, the MINI Clubman is the result of a modern interpretation of the classic Mini versions. Yet at the same time, the concept is independent and innovative, taking in account the thoroughly modern demands of today and the unique needs of MINI’s customers. Given its wide range of qualities, the MINI Clubman paves the way into a totally-new market segment, offering new opportunities for the MINI brand and once again underlining MINI’s leadership in the premium small car segment in terms of vehicle concepts, technical innovation and expressive design.
