2010 MINI Cooper Clubman 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)
This is my first Mini and I have really enjoyed it so far. The Clubman version offers just the right amount of extra space for me. I am an avid bowler and can easily fit two two-ball bags in the back without lowering the seats. The extra space in the rear seating area is perfect for the grand kids and occasional adult. In general the interior is comfortable but there are few quirks. I don't like the placement of the power window controls which are right in back of the cup holders. With cups in the holders you can't reach the controls. All in all a great little car with good pep and super economy: Averaging 28+ mpg in city driving.
MPG, performance, road grip, comfort, dual glass sunroof, sound system, cargo capacity (for a small vehicle), wide doors for ease of entry/exit, lots of accessories to jazz up the styling.
Change location of power window controls to doors rather than on lower dash behind cup holders, unlock trunk when vehicle is unlocked rather than separate unlock button for rear doors (would rather have hatchback than two cafe-style doors anyway).
