Which Cooper Clubman is the Best?

Order your car. Don't get stuck paying for stuff you don't want or a color combination that's not exactly your cup of Earl Grey. In one to two months, you can have the exact Mini Clubman you like -- you should even be able to get a similar price to one that's just sitting on a dealer lot. And if we were ordering, we'd go with the Cooper S Clubman. While we'd add a few options and extras, we'd try to stay around $32,000. Any more than that and it becomes a lot of money for what is effectively a compact hatchback -- no matter its many virtues (and door count) Find a Mini Clubman for sale

How Much Does a 2018 MINI Cooper Clubman Cost?

There are three versions of the 2018 Mini Clubman available: Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. Each mostly differs by engine, though there are some feature content differences.

Base-level Cooper models ($24,800) come standard with 16-in alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, selectable drive modes, rear parking sensors, a backup camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver seat, leatherette vinyl upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, a 6.5-in display with a console-mounted controller, HD radio, a USB port, various smartphone integration apps and a 6-speaker sound system.

The sporty Cooper S ($28,450) adds the more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, along with 17-in wheels, sportier styling details, foglights and front sport seats.

The John Cooper Works ($35,900) gets a more powerful version of the Cooper S engine, plus standard ALL4 all-wheel drive, a sport-tuned suspension, special styling details and a special upholstery consisting of cloth and simulated suede. It also gets 18-in wheels, LED headlights, a backup camera, rear parking sensors and keyless ignition and entry. These items are available on the other trims.

Options are in abundance. Many are available as either stand-alone options or within packages. The Premium package adds a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition and entry and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system. The Cold Weather package adds heated front seats and auto-dimming mirrors. The Technology packages brings with it a driver inattention warning system, an 8.8-in center touchscreen, an upgraded center console controller, Apple CarPlay and integrated navigation. The Sport package (Cooper and Cooper S) add an adaptive suspension, LED headlights, LED foglights (Cooper S) and 17-in wheels (Cooper). The Fully Loaded package adds all of the above and is the only way to further opt for the Active Driving Assistant, which includes adaptive cruise control and forward-collision warning with automatic braking.

You can also add separately 8-way power front seats with driver memory functions, a 40/20/40-split rear seat, a head-up display, satellite radio and a variety of upholstery, trim and exterior styling upgrades.

Safety

Is the 2018 MINI Cooper Clubman a Safe Car?

The 2018 Mini Cooper Clubman comes standard with front-side airbags, side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control and a backup camera. A forward-collision warning with automatic braking is available, but only once the pricey Fully Loaded package is specified. It does not offer some common modern safety features like lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert or a blind spot monitoring system.

Competition

2018 MINI Cooper Clubman vs the competition

2018 Volkswagen GTI and Golf R -- Given its size, performance, price tag, premium cabin and available all-wheel drive (Golf R), VW's hot hatches are the best point of comparison for the Clubman. It's bound to be cheaper when equally equipped.

2018 Audi A3 -- If you're just looking for a premium small car, the Audi A3 could be your best alternative to pricier Clubmans (Clubmen?). Although it effectively only comes as a sedan, the handsome A3 has a beautifully designed cabin, superb tech features and a refined driving experience.

2018 Mini Countryman -- Although we could suggest checking out the 4-door Mini Cooper, if you need the sort of space provided by the Clubman, it's also worth considering the Countryman compact SUV. The price is similar, you'll sit higher and have a more versatile cabin.

Used BMW 3 Series Wagon -- This is a pretty good luxury car alternative to the Clubman given its superior driving dynamics, premium cabin and added versatility. It's also produced by the same company -- BMW. It'll cost more new, so considering a used or pre-owned model is recommended.
