Exterior

The new 4-door is the first Mini to offer 2 sets of the cabin doors. The car actually sits 18 mm higher compared to the previous model.

The Clubman rides on a 19 inch alloy wheels. It uses a similar platform to new BMW 2 –Series Active Tourer; this gives this new Mini a longer wheelbase, much less weight and stiffer chassis.

Another Clubman concept feature is the AirBreather. A double roof spoiler has been added; a 3rd brake light has been integrated between the 2 wings of roof spoilers.

Interior

The cabin is different from a regular Mini. It’s anchored by large circular display with its own touch-screen interface. The driver is positioned to use the interface for terrain sensing sat-nav and the 2-stage adaptive dampers.

You will also find there are fewer buttons than the production Mini. The dash designs are flatter and smother. Round air-vents have been replaced by a horizontal version that gives its cabin a different look.
