For It's basically a Mini with more space, so with the Mini Clubman you get the same enjoyable drive, a ride that's never uncomfortable and strong residuals – with room for four adults

Against The one rear door is on the 'wrong' side and, as on the hatch, you have to pay for some things that should be standard. Even though the Clubman is bigger than the hatchback, its boot is still pretty small

It won't take much luggage and it's expensive to buy, but the Mini Clubman is still very much a Mini – and will be a joy to own

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The biggest mistake to make with the Clubman is to think that it's some sort of estate. Truth is, it's only a little more spacious and practical than the standard hatchback.

That said, the reasons for buying a Clubman rather than the conventional hatchback are sufficiently different that we think the most basic Cooper is all the Clubman you need, whereas there are strong arguments for choosing the Cooper S in the standard hatch. Ignore the less powerful Clubman One, though.

Whichever you buy, consider taking out one of the two very worthwhile low-cost fixed-price servicing packages: tlc and tlc xl. The £150 tlc covers you for a first service visit (oil service and micro-filter), brake fluid service after two years and a second service visit (oil service, micro-filter, vehicle check, spark plugs and air filter). Meanwhile, tlc xl costs £380 and covers a further brake fluid service, plus third and fourth services.
