Mini Clubman 2015

The British from Mini will bring the concept that anticipates the future Clubman to the Motor Show in Geneva.

Mini, the BMW owned brand, will undergo a dramatic change. After the new generation of the legendary hatchback called simply “Mini”, the British presents a new concept called Clubman, which will be exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show.

The new concept comes with an increased length of 26 inches and a width increased by about 17 inches as compared to the current generation. That translates into a higher level of interior space.

We notice a futuristic interior, inspired by the new hatchback from the Mini, but with some new elements. All analog clocks are replaced by digital displays and clocks showing speed tmp are mounted inside the wheel, as in a conventional car. Beyond that, we have no drastic changes. Let us remember that it’s a concept, so the production model will probably not benefit from the same changes.

The tremendous, round focus screen immediately transforms its functions based on upon what the driver is doing, and three flip switches underneath it could be altered to control any function that the driver wishes. A wide, adjusted focus support emphasizes an extensive red flip switch to begin the motor, and a stubby movement lever bested by an expansive, round handle.

Unlike other concepts, we have no assertion about the engines that will equip this new model.
