The redesigned Clubman has taken BMW's English brand into new territory where Mini previously dared not tread - would you believe C segment? That'll add fuel to the fire for the numerous 'Bini' haters out there (at least on my Facebook page) who, 14 years on, have still not grasped the idea that Mini is now a brand and not a model description. Now just 2mm shorter than a Volkswagen Golf, the latest Clubman - insiders call it the longest and biggest Mini - is 27cm (almost a foot) longer than the five-door hatchback version on a wheelbase 100mm larger, and 7cm lower with 81 litres more luggage space. And it now has four 'proper' doors. Overall length is 4,253mm, width 1,800mm and height 1,441mm. The wheelbase measures 2,670mm (D segment territory in the 1980s!) while the track is 1,564mm front and 1,565mm rear.
