Some might argue that there's not much that's Mini about the the Mini Clubman. After all it's a Golf-sized compact estate, even if it does take its design cues from the Mini Traveller and Countryman estates of the 1960s.
It’s also the most spacious car offered by Mini and, thanks to its size, four doors and a unique twin rear door arrangement, one of the most practical. It’s also a far more distinctive and customisable option than many of its alternatives, such as the Audi A3 Sportback.
Buyers can pick from petrol or diesel versions, all of which are well equipped, and there are a wide range of options available.
