Best small car I have ever owned!

The 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman S is the best small car that I have every owned. I was more then happy to trade in my 2017 Subaru Impreza Premium for my fully loaded Clubman S automatic in Dynamic Red Metallic. From the first minute, the differences between these two could not be more stark. I love the acceleraton of having the turbo 2.0 litre engine, combined with the 8 speed automatic. I decieded to get a fully loaded car as I was tired to having such minimal amenties in my old Subaru. I'm so glad that I did as I just enjoy the car so much and it's a real pleasure to drive too. Years ago, I test drove a first generation Mini Cooper S and I thought the ride was too harsh much more towards sport. My current car is much more friendly for a long drive. I'm glad that I got the larger Mini as the extra space has come in handy for daily living, commuting, and shopping then smaller 3 door model. I have found that the car is as refined as the 3 series BMW too. I am happy to recommend the Mini Cooper Clubman S as a great all around vehicle and it's reliable too.

Get the S

Owned new clubman for 6 months after deciding between Mini Cooper S 4 door, Honda Civic, Audi A3, & Honda Accord. We went with the Clubman for the handling, storage capacity in the back, ergonomic rear doors, and the allure of being part of owning a Mini. Within the first 30 days started feeling buyers remorse due to incredible sluggish acceleration and even in "sport" mode the car lacks power (lack of horsepower almost felt dangerous in traffic and especially entering highways), which made us wishing we would've paid more for the S model. We went back to the dealership to trade it in and they wanted 35% less than what we paid (we knew there would be depreciation), but the dealership elaborated that Mini halted production of the Clubman for several months because they were unsure if they should keep producing the car because customers were veering more towards Mini Coopers or Countryman models. They also said that the value depreciated because of poor demand & potentially high cost of parts. We walked hoping that we would grow closer to the car. The car has an excellent cabin-feel, handles incredibly well, and the sunroof(s) are an amazing feature that make the cabin feel much bigger. During a snowstorm the car slid off the road and the suspension got ripped apart... I firmly believe most cars would've survived the wreck, but the tiny parts got mangled from the impact. We purchased a Mini Cooper S for the handling and speed. The regular Clubman is just too boring and doesn't seem like a car that Mini wants to continue making.

Fun, unique compact car

We bought this used 4 months ago, we looked at Honda CRV, Mazda MX5, Kia Soul and others, we love it. It is sporty, nimble, quick, and I love it's unique style, We have a rare color combination of Digital Blue with a white roof/mirrors and Satellite Gray interior that really stands out from other vehicles in its class.. It is comfortable to drive and roomy without being too large. Gas mileage is great. We recently took it on a 1000+ mile trip and found the storage space to be adequate for our luggage. The one thing that I really, really don't like is that they have manual seats. Seriously? You can't put an electric seat in a $40k+ car? Heated steering wheel would be nice as well. It is difficult to see out the rear window due to the pillar from the two doors, a camera that projects into the rear view mirror, like Cadillac, would greatly improve visibility.

Before you purchase a Mini Cooper, You need to know that underneath the quirky exterior of the new Mini's is a BMW! They are also not cheap cars. They are compact upscale small cars. They are extremely fun to drive, they are quick, and very nimble!
