As expected, MINI is going to unveil an all-new version of the Clubman at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in concept form. Apparently they realized the previous version was a pointless car, because the new one is a lot more practical, featuring four proper doors and five proper seats. It is also significantly larger than the current model.

The new MINI Clubman is still funky and quirky, because it’s a MINI. The car is instantly recognizable, what with the hexagonal radiator grille, Side Scuttles, the Black Band, short overhangs and elliptical front and rear headlights; all signature dishes of MINI design.

The Clubman also makes use of an intelligent choice of colors to accentuate its iconic design features. The roof, featuring an F1-style rear spoiler, is finished in metallic grey that complements the Berry Red exterior color. The same theme is applied to the interior, which also features black soft nappa leather, Tweed Grey and Black Twill fabrics, and small details such as Union Jack embossment on the seats and central console, contrast stitching, piping or red accentuation surfaces in the sun blinds.

For the first time, though, funky design is mixed with great practicality. MINI confirms the new Clubman is 26 centimeters longer and just under 17 centimeters wider than the current model, but they don’t reveal any facts and figures about interior space and cargo volume. They do say, however, the car has enough space to support an active lifestyle.
