The engines are the same as the three-door Mini line-up, the 1.6 diesel, the 1.6 petrol and the turbocharged 1.6 in the Cooper S. Fortunately, all of them give high performance, especially the diesel and the turbo. Six-speed manual gearboxes are standard.
The Mini Cooper Clubman has better suspension settings with a little more body balance from the three-door car. The car gives not a good performance at sharp turns and corners. The car is famous for its nice and enjoyable drive.
The engines of the Clubman are pretty smooth and more or less noiseless. Wind noise can be heard pretty much during the ride especially in the rear seats and road noise also makes its way inside the cabin.
Like all Minis of the range, this Mini Clubman is pretty expensive, even more expensive than three-door. This Mini like any other Mini has superb resale value without any doubt. Fuel costs are pretty economical too.
The Mini Clubman gained a five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating. All models have front, side and cabin-length head airbags. ISOFIX child seat mountings and stability control is also available as a standard feature. The security features are even better than BMWs.
The seat is nicely padded with adjustable steering wheel giving great comfort to the driver. However, the features and control systems available are more than required and pretty-clattered and not so user-friendly with unmatched design with the size of the car. The material is soft-touch plastic with good use of leather and decent material.
There’s more rear knee room and a minimum of 100-litres more luggage capacity in the boot than in the three-door. The Clubman can easily seat four adults with their much luggage for more than a week’s luggage making the Clubman pretty good in this field.
The variety in cars is available, which are, the Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper D and Works trims. Each of these has almost same specifications and of same range that are available in the equivalent three-door car. A few Clubman exclusives also have a third rear headrest and black or silver rear door pillars. There are more than enough options and paint schemes to get yourself a fully-personalized car with lots of attractive option packs to make the experience more fun and unique for every customer.
