MINI at IAA Frankfurt 2015
MINI is continuing the generation change in its model program.
With the latest addition to the range of the British premium brand, further target groups can now get to enjoy the distinctive MINI feeling. The new MINI Clubman, which will see its world premiere for the public at the International Motor Show 2015 in Frankfurt (IAA), is now entering the premium compact segment thanks to its increased interior space and versatility as well as its driving properties. It combines the technological advances of the latest model generation with sophisticated vehicle characteristics and numerous equipment features available in a MINI for the first time.
Outstanding driving fun, distinctive and highly expressive design as well as innovative functionality further emphasise the individual style which is typical for the brand. This is what makes the new MINI Clubman so instantly appealing and an exceptional phenomenon in the face of the competition. With innovative concepts and a new level of diversity, MINI is highly successful in the premium small car segment, too. The original in this class of vehicle is enjoying increasing popularity not only as the MINI 3 door, but also as the MINI 5 door. Both models will be on display at the IAA 2015 motor show together with the latest generation of the extremely sports-oriented MINI John Cooper Works.
At the world’s most important motor show, to be held from September 19th to 27th 2015, the British brand will also be presenting innovative services as part of MINI Connected in-car infotainment as well as the current range of new optional extras and Original MINI accessories which enable the customer to tailor their vehicle to suit their own personal style. The new MINI Clubman: traditional concept, unique qualities, additional engine range variety. With its four doors, the characteristic split doors at the rear, five seats and the large and versatile interior, the new MINI Clubman not only transfers the classic concept of the shooting brake to the 21st century, but also to the premium compact segment.
The most recent model is also the largest one of the new MINI generation. It is 27 centimetres longer and 9 centimetres wider than the MINI 5 door, and its wheelbase is 10 centimetres larger. Its luggage compartment has a volume of 360 litres and can be extended to as much as 1250 litres by folding down the rear backrest with its 40 : 20 : 40 split. The new MINI Clubman offers the highest level of everyday practicality, long distance suitability, versatility and ride comfort ever seen in a MINI. The market launch of the new MINI Clubman will be on October 31st 2015 with three engine variants, the latest generation of engines featuring MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology for sports-style temperament and outstanding efficiency.
