MINI Clubman to be launched in 2007 in Europe
At the International Automobile Salon in Geneva, MINI announced that the next derivative in its model range will be called MINI Clubman. Based on a concept first shown in Frankfurt in 2005, a ‘Shooting Brake’ body-styled car will be launched before the end of 2007 in Europe, Canadian launch dates to be confirmed.
The new car promises to be distinctive, yet authentically embody the MINI character. Offering more versatility without compromising the revered chassis of current Hatch models, the production version of the car is further evidence of MINI’s aim to break boundaries in car design.
Historically, ‘Shooting Brake’ models are so-called due to a combination of premium two-door styling, with added interior flexibility and comfort for owners leading active lifestyles.
