Pros

Same maneuverability, more practicality; bigger, but still MINI.


Model Highlights

The 2008 MINI Clubman was a highly anticipated model, as it added more versatility to the popular line. The length of the Clubman is more than nine inches longer than the MINI Cooper, which means the interior seating and cargo spaces are much more useable. Visually, the coupe's rear hatch has been replaced by what can be endearingly referred to as "barn doors." Instead of one large door that rises up, these split doors swing to the side independent of each other, similar to the Clubman's ancestors from decades past. Also, on the passenger side of the car is the "Clubdoor," a small rear hinged door which greatly benefits passenger ingress and egress.

The same, much-lauded mechanical bits from the Cooper underpin the Clubman, though, meaning the ride is nearly as exciting and lively. A 1.6L I4 engine with variable valve timing cranks out 118 horsepower, while the Clubman S uses a turbocharged version of the same engine to the tune of 172 horsepower. A manual six-speed is standard in both models, with a six-speed automatic with Steptronic paddles is optional. In addition to the more potent engine, the S also has larger alloys, performance tires, exterior enhancements, fog lamps, and twin exhaust.

MINI offers thousands of color combinations coordinating exterior, body color or contrasting roof, and colorline interior trim. Unique to the Clubman is the contrasting rear trim. Even when ordering a body color roof, this trim, which surrounds the tail lights and covers the D-pillar and rear bumper, is available only in silver or black. Also unique to the Clubman is the Hot Chocolate exterior paint and interior leather seat trim.

Complementing a long list of standards are noteworthy, high-tech options such as Keyless Go entry, universal mobile phone prep, and Sirius satellite and HD radio. Rounding out the optional equipment are all manner of goodies, including heated seats, a navigation system, xenon headlights, a stiffer suspension, park distance control, and a plethora of alloy wheels. And if that isn't enough, MINI has a prolific aftermarket and dealer-supported accessories industry.

All MINIs come standard with six air bags, anti-lock disc brakes, cornering brake control, electronic brakeforce distribution, and daytime running lamps.

Commensurate with the increase in length and interior volume is an increase in price over the Cooper hatchback. The Cooper Clubman starts at $19,950, while the Cooper S Clubman lists for $23,450.


Model News

All new for 2008, the Clubman represents the third model line for the MINI brand. Designed to exhibit all the handling characteristics of the highly revered Cooper, the Clubman is built on the same platform with a three-inch longer wheelbase and six-inch longer rear overhang. The lengthened body does little to diminish what can best be described as go-kart-like handling, but does translate to more comfortable seating for rear passengers and a larger, more practical cargo area. Standard and optional equipment mirror those of the Cooper and Cooper S hatchbacks, so with a slightly higher base price, one gets all the fun of a regular Cooper in a more user-friendly package.


Value Writeup

Few cars come as close to conveying the pure joy of driving like a MINI. From the more practical base model to the thrill-a-minute S, and with virtually every conceivable option under the sun available, the MINI Clubman can be ordered to suit virtually any driver. And though their price may seem high for what these cars are, try to find a MINI driver who regrets the purchase.
