Spy Shots: 2015 Mini Clubman Testing in the Cold of Sweden
We’ve already seen the official details on first versions of the new-generation Mini Cooper, but others are still out there testing. One of the models still in the testing phase, the Clubman version, was caught testing is the crisp air of Sweden.
Even though the prototype wears lots of camouflage, it’s pretty clear that the next Clubman will grow in size — just like the standard Cooper — and will have regular-size rear doors. What Mini didn’t change was the two-door setup for the cargo area, which is one of the many features that makes the Clubman so unique.
The 2015 Clubman will come with the same engine lineup as the base Cooper, which includes a 1.5-liter, three-cylinder engine for the base version and a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine for the S version. In Europe, customers will also get a series of diesel engines to choose from.

The prototype caught testing today still wears lots of camouflage, but even so, it easy to see that the new Clubman will feature the same design elements we saw on the recently launched Cooper.
These elements include a revised grille with a smooth, one-piece chrome frame, new headlights, a revised nose and larger taillights.
