Few cars come as close to conveying the pure joy of driving like a MINI. From the more practical base model to the thrill-a-minute S, and with virtually every conceivable option under the sun available, the MINI Clubman can be ordered to suit virtually any driver. And though their price may seem high for what these cars are, try to find a MINI driver who regrets the purchase.
All new for 2008, the Clubman represents the third model line for the MINI brand. Designed to exhibit all the handling characteristics of the highly revered Cooper, the Clubman is built on the same platform with a three-inch longer wheelbase and six-inch longer rear overhang. The lengthened body does little to diminish what can best be described as go-kart-like handling, but does translate to more comfortable seating for rear passengers and a larger, more practical cargo area. Standard and optional equipment mirror those of the Cooper and Cooper S hatchbacks, so with a slightly higher base price, one gets all the fun of a regular Cooper in a more user-friendly package.
The 2008 MINI Clubman was a highly anticipated model, as it added more versatility to the popular line. The length of the Clubman is more than nine inches longer than the MINI Cooper, which means the interior seating and cargo spaces are much more useable. Visually, the coupe's rear hatch has been replaced by what can be endearingly referred to as 'barn doors.' Instead of one large door that rises up, these split doors swing to the side independent of each other, similar to the Clubman's ancestors from decades past. Also, on the passenger side of the car is the 'Clubdoor,' a small rear hinged door which greatly benefits passenger ingress and egress.
