The Clubman is another wagon version of the Mini. It's 11 inches longer, three inches wider, 300 pounds heavier, and $3,000 more expensive than the regular Mini Cooper four-door. And yet, it's still blessed with the brand's unique charm.
With more space and practicality than the Mini Cooper, the Clubman aims to appeal to those who want to bring family and friends along for the ride. And with the 2016 redesign, the Clubman has become more conventional. Gone is the two-door wagon look with its odd passenger-side-only rear-hinged door. In its place are two conventional rear side doors that provide easy access to a rear seat that's just roomy enough for adults.
Rest assured, the Clubman still oozes plenty of Mini-ness. For instance, the van-like, side-hinged rear cargo doors -- replete with a tiny wiper on each window -- look super cool. This design feature helps distinguish the Clubman, but it compromises both cargo loading and rear visibility.
