The R56 Hatch came out in 2006 and the Clubman in 2007. I'm guessing the hatch is due out in late 2012 or early 2013. The Clubman will be here in 2013 or early 2014.
We've seen spy shots of the F56 Hatch. Firm rumours are that BMW will unveil the F56 Hatch at MINI United in the late summer of 2012.
I've heard less about the Clubman and haven't seen credible spy shots. That is consistent with the new Clubman being about a year behind the hatch.
In Europe the new BMW 116i is serious competition to the current Clubman. They are about the same price, but the F20 1 series is a better car.
