Which used Mini Clubman estate should I buy?
Because the Clubman isn’t exactly cheap to buy, we reckon keeping it simple is the order of the day. That means picking a Cooper, which gives you all the equipment you need and none you don’t. If you do fancy a few extra fripperies, though, we’d suggest finding one with a couple of options packages rather than upgrading to the Cooper S.
Of the two engines available with the Cooper, and given the current climate surrounding diesel engines, we reckon the 1.5-litre petrol is the best choice, unless you spend enough time doing long-distance trips that the fuel economy savings you’ll make outweigh any potential additional expense in the future.
