A bigger Mini may sound like an oxymoron, but the Mini Cooper Clubman succeeds in offering slightly more passenger and cargo room while remaining compact and nimble.
This elongated Cooper is a spiritual revival of the Morris Mini Traveller, a station wagon version of the original Mini produced during the 1960s with double swing-out rear doors. Although the concept version that first appeared at the 2005 Frankfurt Auto Show initially bore its predecessor's namesake, the car was later renamed the Clubman after another Mini model that was made throughout the late '60s and 70s.
The modern-day Clubman is a four-seat, two-door hatchback that's a bump up in size and price from the iconic Mini Cooper. Its body is 10 inches longer and features a third, passenger-side rear-hinged door to allow easier access to the backseat. On the inside, the Clubman has 2.5 inches more rear legroom and 3.5 more cubic feet of cargo space than its more diminutive sibling. While these additions don't exactly make the Clubman roomy, the car might just be the answer for those who crave the classic styling and handling of a Mini along with a little extra breathing room.
Used Mini Cooper Clubman Models
The Mini Cooper Clubman was introduced for 2008 and is related to the second-generation Mini. The JCW edition wasn't available that first year.
Until 2010, the base engine produced 118 hp while the Cooper S produced 172 hp. There are other differences between Clubmans produced prior to 2011. The steering was more prone to torque steer, the styling was ever-so-slightly different and the Clubman's audio controls were even more perplexing (the volume knob was placed a good 6 inches south of its audio comrades). All the center stack buttons and knobs were also painted silver, which gave them a less substantial, toylike look. Prior to 2010, cruise control and a multifunction steering wheel were optional.
