Which Clubman does Edmunds recommend
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating4 / 5
The original Clubman was a slightly stretched version of the Mini Hardtop with a reverse-opening side passenger door and a distinctive swing-out tailgate arrangement. The latest-generation Clubman takes a more conventional approach to car design, though. Regular rear doors take the place of the reverse-opening one, and it's now significantly larger than the four-door Hardtop. It's 3 inches wider; it rides on a wheelbase that's 4 inches longer; and it's nearly a foot longer end to end. Predictably, these changes have resulted in a lot more weight, and the Clubman feels blunted somewhat as a result.
Yet the Clubman rides better than the Hardtop, and it will carry a lot more. Life is full of compromises, and this car is an example of that. At least the trim levels on offer don't hold anything back: You can option out a Clubman in a variety of ways to suit a variety of dispositions. At the base end, the Cooper sips the least fuel to the tune of 27 mpg in combined city/highway driving. The fastest Clubman is the John Cooper Works. But we reckon the sweet spot in the range is the Cooper S, which balances performance with value.
trim levels & features
The 2018 Mini Clubman is for people who love the driving and handling characteristics of a Mini but need more rear-seat room and cargo space than the four-door Hardtop model provides. It's available in three trims that are mostly differentiated by the engine lying underhood. The Cooper and Cooper S are relatively close in price, while the John Cooper Works version is significantly pricier (though its list of additional performance items is impressive). A staggering number of styling, performance and luxury upgrades are available on all models.
Powering the Cooper is a turbocharged three-cylinder engine (134 horsepower, 162 pound-feet of torque) paired to your choice of a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. It's got a ton of standard features, including 16-inch alloy wheels, run-flat tires, automatic headlights and wipers, heated mirrors, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, selectable driving modes, height-adjustable front seats, simulated leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 60/40-split folding rear seat and multicolor ambient lighting. Among the standard tech items are Bluetooth, a 6.5-inch central display, smartphone app integration, a rearview camera, and a six-speaker sound system with HD radio and a USB port.
Stepping up to the Cooper S adds a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (189 hp, 207 lb-ft) mated to the six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic (steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters are optional). It also gets 17-inch wheels, dual exhaust tips, extra styling flourishes, foglights, and front sport seats with adjustable thigh support.
At the top of the Clubman range lies the John Cooper Works trim. Motivated by a more potent version of the turbocharged four-cylinder (228 hp, 258 lb-ft), this Clubman comes only with all-wheel drive. Upgrades include 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, a rear spoiler, a sport-tuned suspension, keyless entry, rear parking sensors, a sport steering wheel, and simulated suede and cloth upholstery.
Though some of the available packages are trim-specific, a few can be ordered on any Clubman variant. These include the Cold Weather (auto-dimming mirrors and heated front seats) and Premium (keyless ignition and entry, a panoramic sunroof, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and, for the John Cooper Works trim, adaptive LED headlights) packages. There's also a Technology package, which adds an automated parking system, front and rear parking sensors, an 8.8-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, a head-up display, Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and wireless device charging.
Both Cooper and Cooper S can be ordered with the Sport package, which adds 17-inch wheels (Cooper only), adaptive suspension dampers, LED foglights (Cooper S only) and LED headlights. These two trims can be ordered with a Fully Loaded package, which bundles the Premium, Sport and Technology packages. The JCW Exterior and Interior packages add special design flourishes from Mini's John Cooper Works performance division.
Many of these items can be ordered individually. Other notable options include adaptive cruise control, various wheel designs (17-, 18- and 19-inch), black or white hood stripes, roof rails, a rear foglight, power-adjustable front seats (with driver-seat memory functions), a 40/20/40-split rear seat, cloth upholstery, leather and cloth upholstery, full leather upholstery, various interior trim pieces, satellite radio and a space-saver spare tire.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2016 Mini Clubman Cooper Hatchback (turbo 1.5L inline-3 | 6-speed automatic | FWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Clubman has received some revisions, including touchscreen functionality for the upgraded central display. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Clubman.

The 2018 Mini Clubman is a five-seat compact wagon that offers more passenger and cargo room than Mini's smaller Hardtop model yet provides the fun driving experience the automaker is known for. As with other vehicles in the Mini lineup, the Clubman's trim levels primarily relate to what kind of engine lies underhood. A number of option packages are available across all trim levels, so you can get a fully loaded Clubman with the least powerful engine if you desire. There's also a stunning number of stand-alone features, ranging from black hood stripes to adaptive suspension dampers. We'll help you make sense of the Clubman's offerings.
The Clubman comes in three trim levels: Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. Each is powered by a different engine and offers a choice between a manual or an automatic transmission. The Cooper and Cooper S are front-wheel-drive, but if you live in a place with a lot of rain or snow, you'll appreciate the availability of all-wheel drive. (It's optional on the Cooper and Cooper S and standard on the JCW.)
For power, the Clubman Cooper has a turbocharged three-cylinder engine producing 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. We think it's a fine engine for around-town driving, but Mini enthusiasts won't be blown away by its lackluster acceleration.
We think the turbocharged four-cylinder engine (producing 189 hp and 207 lb-ft) in the Cooper S is an affordable upgrade. It comes with all the Cooper's standard features, such as dual-zone climate control, ambient lighting and simulated leather upholstery. The Cooper S adds performance bits such as a dual exhaust, sport seats and an aggressive body kit.
The John Cooper Works is the most powerful Clubman available, with 228 hp and 258 lb-ft on tap and a handful of performance enhancements, including larger wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and a rear spoiler. It's a fairly pricey upgrade from the Cooper S, though some of that is due to the inclusion of the all-wheel-drive system. On the bright side, fuel economy estimates are nearly identical to those for the Cooper S.
No matter how you slice it, the Clubman is expensive compared to rival hatchbacks and wagons. But its BMW-grade interior materials and construction, sporty handling characteristics and fun-to-drive demeanor help elevate it above the rest. And while the options list is admittedly dense, the packages and features are nearly identical across the trims, so the Clubman is highly customizable. With so many options to choose from, you can ensure that your Mini stands out in the crowd. Use Edmunds' acclaimed shopping tools to configure, price and find your perfect Mini Clubman.
