MINI’s new Clubman will be making it’s debut at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but here are three teaser images of the new 5-door MINI shot by professional photographers for the press kit. It shows the front, rear, and the new enlarged boot space of the new MINI Clubman variant clearly.
Although the Clubman is a 5-door, it’s 5 doors aren’t in the usual space you’d expect. You have 1 on the driver’s side, 2 on the passenger’s side, and 2 more at the rear because the boot opens refrigerator style, with two doors split in the middle hinged on both sides of the car. The badge on the rear of the Clubman says Cooper S, which probably means this new variant will still be called the Cooper and Cooper S but with an additional Clubman prefix or suffix tagged on.
Engine options are similiar to the 3-door variants – a 120 horsepower naturally aspirated inline-4 for the Cooper and a turbocharged version with 175 horsepower for the Cooper S. There will also be a Cooper D Clubman using a 1.6 litre turbodiesel with 110hp.
