Just yesterday, Mini unveiled the new-generation Cooper and it looks like engineers are already out testing another variant of the lineup: the Cooper Clubman . Our spy photographers managed to catch it, while being towed to a test facility.
Just like with the standard Cooper , the new Clubman will grow in all directions and will feature regular rear doors on both sides. What will remain unchanged are the two access doors to the cargo area, which is not necessarily a good thing, but it does give the Clubman a unique look.
As for the engine lineup, the Clubman will carry the same engines from the standard Cooper, including the three-cylinder engine and the usual four-cylinder in the Clubman S. The diesel version, which will likely not make it to the U.S., will also get a three-cylinder engine. All the engines will mate to a standard six-speed manual transmission, with a six-speed automatic transmission offered as an option.
