Forget the Countryman, if you want a cool, soft-road Mini, you'll be begging the British brand to put the new Clubman All4 Scrambler Concept into production.
MINI Cooper Clubman News
The John Cooper Works label is poised to spread to Mini's most grown-up car, but don't expect a jacked-up off-road version ever.
Mini has brought in some big stars to shine a spotlight on the new Clubman and "Defy Labels" in an ad to run this Sunday during the Super Bowl. Check it out here, along with a look behind the scenes of its making.
The Mini Clubman All4 finally adds all-wheel drive to the brand's practical hatchback.
Mini finally showed the all-new Clubman, the largest vehicle the company has ever built, to the motoring public at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Mini has officially taken the wraps off the all-new 2016 Clubman, longer and wider than any Mini before. It's also more luxurious, to serve as the brand's new flagship model.
Mini gears up to hit the virtual racetrack with its Vision Gran Turismo concept, based on the upcoming new Clubman and upgraded with a hefty dose of attitude.
Is Mini constricting its staggering array of model variants or expanding it? That depends largely on which way you look at it. Because while some models may not make the cut as the second-generation family is gradually replaced with the third, others appear to be joining the fold. They just might not bear different model names.
Contrary to popular belief, it seems that Mini's growth plans do have a limit both in size and number of models. During the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, it unveiled the six-door Clubman concept (pictured above) that was 4.4-inches longer and about two-inches wider than even the current Countryman crossover. Mini design chief Anders Warming says that this is the new size limit for its models, and the BMW subsidiary isn't building a larger, seven-passenger vehicle above the current Countryman.
