2014 MINI Clubman review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Mini stretched the length of its Cooper hardtop by about 9 inches to make the four-seat Cooper Clubman. The extra length creates more legroom for the Clubman’s two rear passengers, and cargo room behind the backseat is larger. There’s a pair of split-opening rear doors that swing out to either side, rather than the regular Cooper’s conventional hatchback. There’s also a rear-hinged access door on the passenger side.

The Clubman comes in two trim levels: Cooper and turbocharged Cooper S. It competes with sporty hatchbacks ranging from the Mazda3 to Volkswagen Golf.

Fast and Fun

This beast of a car will corner and hug the road at very high speeds, plus comfort and great style, add economic , terrific automobile.


It suits me!

It is perfect for me...not too big, not too small. Packs well for trips, and is a great road warrior. Perfect everyday car. Love the “spaceship” interior appointments. This is my second Clubman.


Most nice small car

Here are reviews rated as useful by other users. Drives Like A Lexus by WayneNH After driving the Pilot, Ridgeline, Highlander, Santa Fe, and several others, the Sorento EX V6 was by far the best value for my money. It is solidly built, quiet, and smooth. The ride is like a Lexus and it handles almost like a sedan. It's just the right size, has very comfortable seats and is loaded with technology! On my first 500+ mile trip, I averaged 28.8 mpg. If you're looking for a new crossover in this segment, put this one on your short list to test drive.
