SPLIT REAR BARN DOORS
Roomy [room-ee]; Having plenty of room; to be spacious; 32.8 cubic feet of cargo space including a 100% flat-load floor and hidden storage compartment.
Accessible [ak-ses-uh-buhl]; Easy to reach, enter or use.
Ingenious [in-jeen-yuhs]; The Clubman's rear split-doors with left and right hinged swinging doors. Taken right from a page in MINI's history book, the split-door design was first introduced in the 60's on, quite literally, the original minivan. The Classic Mini-Minor Traveller was a small, utilitarian hold-all with a spartan charm that was enthusiastically embraced by British postal workers, police, mobile engineers and even the army for its versatility and can-do attitude.
Fast-forward some 40 years and the Split Rear "Barn" Door design is back on the new Clubman. Efficient and distinct, it lets you open one door or both and can turn your curve pouncing companion into a stuff-hauling legend in one (okay, two) fell swoop. Of course, there have been a few modern updates as well. Instead of simple hinges, each door now features hydraulic struts to help manage the opening and closing swing. And to help maintain the design of our "floating tail lamp", each door has a cutout that allows the tail lamps to stay integrated with the body instead of the rear doors.
