What is a MINI Cooper Clubman?
You may not be familiar with the MINI Cooper Clubman, even if you’re familiar with the classic MINI Cooper. While most people recognize the Cooper for its timeless design and small stature, the Clubman is more difficult to recognize right away. It’s a family car with seating for up to five people. While still small for a family car, it’s notably larger than the 2-door or 4-door and has a number of additional features.
The Clubman is a very affordable car, starting at only $24,900 for a base price. It offers everything that people love about the classic MINI, like TwinPower Turbo engines, all-wheel drive, and great performance. It’s available in Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works styles. Prices vary according to the style and performance of the car, with the Cooper acting as the most basic model and the John Cooper Works style offering a significant increase in performance.
Most notably, the MINI Clubman is a family car that’s built to be roomier and more accessible for more people. These cars are available with manual or automatic transmission and a number of safety features like brake assist and stability control, as well as six airbags. It’s a car that’s intended to keep loved ones safe, all wrapped up in a classy package that car enthusiasts love.
MINI Coopers are known for being attractive and sporty little cars, and the Clubman is no exception. However, it offers safer handling and more cargo space, making it a better everyday vehicle for small families. The current generation of Clubman cars are the largest MINIs ever manufactured. The first generation didn’t have all-wheel drive available, but you can now enjoy a better level of drivability based on your preferences by choosing either two-wheel or four-wheel drive.
You might have noticed that the name “Clubman” isn’t quite in line with other MINI Cooper models, like the Countryman. That’s because the Clubman began production after the merger with BMW, and Clubman is a BMW naming choice. There’s a fun fact for trivia night!
