2016 Mini Clubman Release Date

Previewed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in concept form, the new Clubman will keep its signature split tailgate but see its single suicide-style rear door replaced by two conventional rear doors. The new Clubman will also feature different tail lights compared to those used on the third-gen MINI Hardtop, with which it will share the BMW Group’s new UKL front-wheel-drive platform.

2016 Mini Clubman Specs

Look for the new MINI Clubman to reach showrooms in the fall of this year, as a 2016 model. Other new MINIs in the works include a new generation of the Countryman plus a new sports model to replace both the MINI Coupe and Roadster.

Also, the interior standard features will be equipped with small updates as well. The features include steering wheels with leather wrappers, satellite navigation and automatic climate control. Hence, the inner space will have more supporting luggage space and possesses latest safety and security features.

We can expect the new version of the Clubman to be more closely related to the Hardtop than previous versions were, though instead of trying to hide its four passenger doors and the length that comes with it, this model will draw attention to its extra versatility. The rear passenger doors will be just a bit longer than on the 4 Door Hardtop and will feature a slightly different profile as far as shutlines go. The new Clubman will also have a longer rear cargo compartment, which will of course be accessible via two barn doors. The six-door Clubman will also ditch the 4 Door Hardtop’s clamshell trunk profile for a more squared-off tail section and a thicker D-pillar. The front fascia will be unique, to distinguish it from the hardtops, though we suspect that those not intimately familiar with Minis will once again have trouble telling which front fascia belongs on the Clubman and which one belongs on the Hardtop.

Unlike the concept Clubman, the production version will retain the door handle recesses of the Cooper Hardtops rather than switching to slimmer pop-out handles. The horizontally oriented tail lights on the production version will likely sit flush with the barn door surfaces, following the curvature of the doors, with individual round LED lights sitting behind clear frames. The horizontal tail lights will perhaps be the most prominent visual cue to those new to the brand when it comes to distinguishing the Clubman from the 4 Door Hardtop.

The reinvented second-gen Clubman will be slightly toned down over the concept displayed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show gaining conventional door handles, smaller wheels and less dramatically styled front grille and bumper trims.

However, it retains everything else, including the six-door layout with a pair of barn-style boot panels at the back, making the new model a more family-orientated estate proposal than the current Clubman with the unusual 2+1 side-door arrangement.

2016 Mini Clubman Engine

2016 Mini Countryman is being assumed that that the engine will come with different drive-train variety. For the base model of 2016 Mini Countryman, hopefully, it will need to have a slight change in its powertrain that is powered by 1.5 liter 4-cylinder engine, where the previous model had a 1.6 liter engine. However, this engine generates up to 135 bhp and 150 lb/ft of torque output. As per few unconfirmed reports, a diesel version engine may be offered with 115 bhp that is a bit less powerful than that of the petrol engine. However, it will produce better torque with improved fuel economy that suits for a small crossover rather well.

MINI’s third-gen Cooper was launched with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine delivering approximately 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque (169 lb-ft with overboost function) in the base model, while a 2.0-liter four-cylinder offers 189 hp and 206 lb-ft (221 lb-ft with overboost) in Cooper S trim. It’s likely the same engines will feature in the new Clubman. Further down the track, expect to see a more potent John Cooper Works model packing at least 228 hp and 236 lb-ft.

Furthermore, it will be the biggest MINI model to date measuring a little over 4.2 meters (+165 inches) in length, thus surpassing the Countryman that’s 4,110mm or 161.8 in long in Cooper S form. At 1,844mm (72.6 in) wide, the concept was also 55mm or 2.2 inches wider than MINI’s crossover improving not only its road presence, but more importantly, passenger space as well.

Built on a stretched version of the BMW Group’s UKL1 platform architecture, the new Clubman will offer a similar engine lineup to the three- and five door hatchbacks, so expect 1.5-liter three-cylinder and 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline and diesel units combined with either six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes. A John Cooper Works version is a given and it will feature a 228hp (230PS) 2.0-liter turbo unit.
