2010 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This vehicle is just plain fun the drive. Traded a G35 and wrongly thought I'd miss the performance. The rear, with seats down, is larger the many bigger cars trunks. There are 2 levels of storage under the floor in the rear. The barn doors are easy to use and better then a swing up door in tight places. Parking is a breeze. I now have about 4 more feet of usable space in my garage. The back seats lack leg room but are very comfortable with the front seats moved a bit forward. The roof rack system will carry just about anything I can think of and is much easier to reach then a SUV. This is a well thought out vehicle with lots to offer regardless of its size or any size.
Styling, mileage, handling, wide doors for entry & exit, key fab, ability to set dash computer to your needs, auto climate center, heated seats, driving lights & bright lights the really project, paddle shifting automatic. The laser blue color has gotten lots of positive comments.
Larger armrest with more storage, one more power port and larger storage in the doors. An OEM trailer hitch option would be nice.
