New images of the Mini Clubman have turned up, with the car captured by spy photographers without any disguise as it was being filmed for a commercial. The images reveal that the Clubman will have a split-opening tailgate, a single suicide-style rear door on the passenger side only, and a corresponding stretched window on the driver’s side.

Other features new to the range include plastic moulding that surrounds the taillights, matched with the same color as the roof, plus the double exhaust tailpipes integrated into the rear bumper and the stretched glass sunroof. Optional extras include ski-racks, and a new roof mounted storage bin.

We’ll have to wait until the official reveal next month to get a look at the Clubman’s interior, and interested buyers will have to wait until the car makes its world debut at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show. In the meantime, head over to km77 for several other shots of the new Clubman on the road.
