Mini makes it official - new model to be dubbed 'Clubman'

Sorry to all of you (us) that were still holding onto the hope that Mini would name their new, longer model the 'Traveler' - it appears that trademark concerns have made that name impossible to get.

So, 'sometime' before the end of the year, Mini will bring out the Mini Clubman with dutch rear doors, a suicide door on the passenger side (to make accessing the new, bigger rear seat easier).

Executives promise to maintain the classic Mini go-kart driving feel...we'll see.
