The Clubman is a longer and wider version of the four-door Cooper and shares its platform with the BMW X1. Engine choices include a slightly wheezy-sounding three-cylinder turbo in the base car and a more powerful and enjoyable-sounding four-cylinder turbo in the S. The base Clubman we tested posted a very good 28 mpg overall. Handling is quite nimble, but the ride is very firm and road noise is pronounced. Unlike the regular Coopers, the Clubman's backseat is habitable. Controls take some getting used to, and the rear view is compromised by the two rear barn doors. With typical options, the Clubman is priced in the low-$30,000s and the S can easily get to the high-$30,000s. All-wheel drive is available on the S trim.

Mini Cooper Clubman 2018
The Clubman is a longer and wider version of the four-door Cooper and now shares its platform with the BMW X1. Engine choices include a slightly wheezy-sounding three-cylinder turbo in the base car or a quicker and more enjoyable-sounding four-cylinder turbo in the S. The base Clubman we tested posted a very good 28 mpg overall. Handling is quite nimble, but the ride is very firm and road noise is pronounced. Unlike the regular Coopers, the Clubman's backseat is actually habitable. Controls take some getting used to, and the rear view is compromised by the two rear barn doors. An all-wheel-drive version is available on the S.

Mini Cooper Clubman 2008
The larger and somewhat more practical Clubman arrived in 2008 with a small third door and a useful back seat and more cargo space, but it seats just four. It has a small door on the passenger side of the car that opens rearward, easing rear-seat access. The rear doors are hinged on the sides and open like a gate, but they hamper rear visibility. Otherwise it feels and drives just like the regular, fun-to-drive Mini. Fuel economy is excellent, ranging from 29 to 33 mpg depending on the version. A high-horsepower JCW version is also offered starting from 2009.
