Engine & Performance
The Clubman concept will have two engines to from; the first is a 1.5 liter inline 3 that gives 136 horsepower at 4,500 rpm to 6,000 rpm to go with 162 pound-feet of torque at 1,250 to 4,000 rpm.
The other is the bigger 2.0 liter, inline-4 engine which produces 192 horsepower at 4,700 to 6,000 rpm and 206 lbs ft of torque.
The hatch concept is expected to go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds with a top speed of about 130 mph.
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 â€“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.
The cabin is different from a regular Mini. Itâ€™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 Round air-vents have been replaced by a horizontal version that gives its cabin a different look.
