Behind the Wheel
If you've spent whatever fourth dimension behind the bike of a MINI Cooper, you'll await the Clubman to offering a lot of driving enjoyment -- as well as it sure as shooting delivers. Its larger size sure as shooting dulls its agility, but its treatment as well as steering are first-class inwards virtually all forms. While acceleration is lackluster inwards base of operations models (134 hp only isn't a lot for a motorcar this big), the Cooper southward Clubman has roughly serious pop. The John Cooper Works is fifty-fifty better.
More importantly, the Clubman offers roughly practicality to become along amongst its performance. In back, the Clubman touts 2.5 to a greater extent than inches of legroom than inwards a criterion Cooper model, which is no pocket-sized feat.

They're also non the only funky matter most the Clubman, which boasts enough of interior quirks similar toggle switches as well as circular styling details that whatever MINI fan would similar a shot recognize. Thankfully, this trend doesn't come upward amongst every bit much of a functional or character penalisation every bit the terminal Clubman did -- the cabin is to a greater extent than premium as well as less toylike. The improver of an optional touchscreen for 2017 increases functionality further, since the console-mounted infotainment controller tin travel awkward to reach.
