Look at the latest overweight MINI spotted on German streets. The rear is a split gate. Expected to use the same motivation as the Cooper crew.

I really dislike that tail light position on the clubman. ALL that needs to be done to fix it is have it positioned vertically. Horizontal doesn't work.

Anyone going to a 'Preview' ?

Be one of the first to meet the impressive blend of stylish design and innovative functionality that is the new MINI Clubman.

Surround yourself with its luxurious finishes and clever technology ahead of its worldwide premiere, while enjoying hospitality to match in the Clubman Lounge, with refreshing cocktails, craft ales, and canapés.

Only one word describes it - UGLY

I could go into detail but all the aesthetic MINI elements - from angle of roof line to balanced curves - are completely lost on this model. What a complete and utter failure from BMW. Even the Countryman looks great (as at least it is bigger proportionately) compared to this Sausage Dog's Breakfast of a station wagon car.

Agree on tailight but disagree that anything could fix the weird shape of the car. The long sweeping lines of the central section are totally out of context with the rounded rear and front. This looks like one of those children's games where you can switch animal parts and connect together. The front and back are obviously from a smaller aesthetic egg shaped MINI but the middle section looks like it came from a Subaru Outback. Looks like a stretch limo - just a real freak of a car!

The rear is an obvious copy of the Volvo design over the last 10 years - except for the tailight being rotated - perhaps they are targeting Volvo owners?

Uh, are you talking about the crappy photoshop job above or the REAL Clubman? Because I think the actual Clubman looks great, especially the new interior. Very classy. I can't wait to see some of the hands-on impressions when it makes its public debut this month.
