At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, MINI is going to unveil its latest concept car. Named MINI Clubman Concept, the car is 26 centimeters longer and 17 centimeters wider than the currently available MINI Clubman. The concept car as just as radical looking as you can expect, while carrying most of the familiar MINI elements.
The Clubman concept is a four door, five seater vehicle which would aim at supporting the active lifestyle of urban consumers.

Proportion wise, the concept is 4223 mm in length, 1844 mm in width and 1450 mm in height.
Externally, the design of the Clubman Concept is very appealing and features a range of elements which not only look good but have a function too. The highlights include black chrome bumper, 3D chrome ribs, AirCurtains in the front apron – an aerodynamic feature, a long wheelbase, a Waistline Finisher, Black Chrome and Chrome finished 19-inch light alloy rims, glossy accents and much more.
Coming to the interior or cabin of the Clubman concept, it is available in a combination of upholsteries including light Sky Blue nubuck leather, Berry Red patent leather and black soft nappa leather. Accentuating the fine materials is a plenty of patinized silver elements, which provide the needed decoration.
Perhaps the most striking component of the cabin is the leather-covered instrument pane which is surrounded in blue limed ash grain and white porcelain finish, delivering a lovely ambience for the driver and front passenger. Other highlights include linear silver-plated air vents, Black Chrome area between the air vents with a backlit feature, Faded Diamonds rhombus pattern and more. Providing a pleasing contrast to the upper half of the instrument panel, the lower side is finished in Berry Red patent leather.
