Report: Next Mini Cooper could get rear-hinged door like Clubman

Mini Clubman

Recent spy shots of the third-generation Mini Cooper suggest that the compact hatchback could get a Clubman-style third door when it hits streets next year.

The spy shots show a second shutline, covered by tape, behind the driver’s door.

BMW Group received a lot of criticism for the use of a single rear-hinged club-door on the Mini Clubman in the UK, since it was on the wrong side for right-hand-drive cars. To rectify the situation, Mini will add a rear-hinged door on both the Countryman and the second-generation Clubman.
