What used Mini Clubman estate will I get for my budget?
Early models are really rather cheap these days; they go for as little as £2500. Trouble is, you’ll be getting a car that’s often covered over 100,000 miles and possibly has patchy service history, so instead spend upwards of £5000 to find a tidy One or Cooper model from 2009-2010 that will have covered about 75,000 miles.
Increasing your budget to £7500 will enable you to find a 2011 or 2012 car, while £9000 should get you into a mint 2012 or 2013 Clubman. Spend more than £10,000 for the very last vehicles of this generation from 2014 with below-average mileage.
