2015 MINI Clubman caught with new navigation screen?

We saw the next-generation MINI Clubman for the first time back in November on a flatbed truck in Munich, revealing a familiar design, but big changes to size and also new forward hinged rear doors in favour of the current “suicide” type rear door.

Next Clubman is now going through winter testing in extreme cold near the Arctic Circle.

The prototype was caught in the dark and at first there are no new details, but we did notice what looks to be a new navigation screen in the middle of the dashboard.

Usually the navigation screen on MINI models is in the middle of the round speedo instrument.

Riding on the new enlarged UKL platform the new Clubman is almost as big as the BMW 3 Series Touring, offering more room for the rear passengers and stepping into a new market segment.

update! This is most likely just the HUD (Heads-up display), seen also on the current model.

    am I seeing this right – are rear lights placed ONLY in the rear bumper? nothing on side pillars? omfg what is it? for real??

    • I like it

      I think that is just rear reflectors. I think the actual tail lights are hidden.

      But there is no way those are F31 dimensions. At most it’s E46 wagon/X1 sized. My guess is that it fits somewhere between Lexus CT200h and E46 wagon/X1.

    The screen in the middle is the hud, which is found on f56 models too, what’s new….
