Spy shots that are reportedly of a new Mini Clubman model have been captured in Munich.

Mini, which recently trimmed its lineup by two models, plans to launch the F54 Clubman at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, according to BMW Blog via Bimmertoday. The model believed to be the new Clubman wore BMW-Mini camouflage while being tested on Munich's streets.

A four-door model, the F54 Clubman measures around 7 inches wider and 10 inches longer than its predecessor, BMW Blog reported.

The new Mini will get new infotainment technology and safety systems that include parking assist and active cruise control that senses distance.

The Clubman is expected to be available for sale in early 2016.

BMW recently announced that it is closing production of the Mini Coupe and Mini Roadster, a move that will reportedly help streamline the brand and boost profitability.

The automaker calls the shift a "change in generation" at its Oxford plant that closes out the Coupe and Roadster's journey as Mini promotes the Mini 3-Door Hatch and Mini 5-Door that rolled out a few months ago.

"The two individual two-seater athletes Mini Coupe and Mini Roadster will finish their career together and as planned," BMW Group said in a statement.
