Behold, our first view of the 2015 F57 MINI convertible, 2015 F55 Five door hatch and the upcoming 2016 F54 Clubman. The photo, taken this week at the Nurburgring where the trio were undergoing suspension evaluation, shows us just how much larger the new Clubman will be next to the standard MINI and the new five door hatch. Also noticeable is the different design of the Clubman S front bumper as compared to the other two cars (both Cooper S models). And those changes are just the start. Lets take a closer look at each car, the changes we’ll see and exactly when we’ll see each in showrooms. continued →

MINI and BMW executives keep dropping more and more indicators that several current MINI models don’t have a future in this new generation of cars. This latest round of revelations came via Oliver Friedmann, head of MINI brand management, in a conversation with Auto News. Instead of a wide cross-section of model variants, Friedmann says MINI’s new strategy is to focus on three “pillar” cars to ground the product lineup in what MINI is all about. Those models? The F56 hardtop hatch, the next generation Countryman, and the next generation Clubman which we saw in concept at Geneva.

With the weather warming, we’re seeing more and more spy shots emerge of the upcoming 5-door MINI Hardtop Hatch. Internally designated the F55, this is a slightly stretched version of the F56 Hardtop Hatch which incorporates four conventional passenger doors. While spy shots have been coming in at at more steady rate, this set over at GMotors are the first to give us a view of the open doors. As expected, the rear doors are small, but look like they’ll serve just as well as any other small 5-door like a Honda Fit.

As always, check out our F55 Section for the most info on the web about MINI’s next model.

According to sources the F54 four door will debut in Geneva lightly disguised as a concept with an imminent internet debut.

Right on schedule MINI will be killing off the Clubman model at the end of the 2014 model year after a seven year model run. If the rumors we’re hearing our true, the last month of production will be June of this year giving prospective buyers just a few more months to plan our their purchase.
