Used Mini Clubman 2007- 2014 review

Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mini Clubman estate?

If you’re a fan of weird door layouts, check out the Hyundai Veloster coupé. It too had one door on one side and two on the other, except Hyundai had the decency to arrange them so that two of them were on the kerb side. It’s not exciting to drive, though, even in Turbo form.

Perhaps those looking for a more practical Mini would be better suited going for the Countryman SUV. It still has all the styling motifs of a Mini, but it has five doors in the usual places and a big boot.

Verdict

Quirky looks and the extra doors do make this a more practical Mini, but there are a number of flaws that prevent it from taking class honours

  • Handling
  • Fuel economy
  • Classy image
  • Odd door design
  • Firm ride
  • Early diesel engines
