Over the past several years, mini has grown its brand to tremendous heights, becoming one of the most recognizable, and highly praised “rally-esque” cars on the market. Whether you have been a long time fan of mini, or are largely unfamiliar with their cars and reputation, the 2016 Clubman is definitely a car that is worth checking out.
The Clubman boasts an additional 17 inches in length and 3 inches in width than the two door hardtop, allowing roof for four sized adults and all of their personal effects in its 18 cubic ft2 cargo hold.
The mini has a standard 1.5 cylinder turbo charged engine that produces 134 horsepower and allows for about an 8 second 0 to 60 miles per hour time. While the six speed automatic packs enough torque to make for an enjoyable and wheel screeching ride, the engines power tapers off rather quickly making for a slightly less thrilling ride than its competitor the Golf GTI.
As far as fuel economy goes, the Mini has a 24 mpg average in the cities and a 34 mpg average on the highway which is a bit low for a diesel.
The Clubman also boasts impressive handling for a car that totes around so much extra weight and space allowing for a rather fun and zippy ride.
Style and Comfort
Like all Minis, the Cooper Clubman looks great and as a sporty, distinctive interior that most car fanatics will love. The car itself has ample room in the front seat, allowing for a comfortable drive without sacrificing its historically petite frame.
