2019 Mini Cooper Clubman

Pros: Fun to drive; roomier than most Minis; available all-wheel drive

Cons: Quirky controls; pricey for a small car

CG Says: The 2019 Mini Cooper Clubman is essentially unchanged. The Cooper Clubman was redesigned for 2016 and gained a door. The previous 3-door Clubman had a rear-hinged, right-side door. The new Clubman is true 4 door. However, Clubman still retains the previous generation’s dual “barn door” rear cargo doors. The Clubman is larger than both the model it replaced and the Cooper 4-door Hardtop. Compared with the 4-door Hardtop, it’s almost 11 inches longer on a 4-inch-longer wheelbase. It is also 2.9-inches wider, which permits increasing passenger capacity from four to five. (Mini also sells a similarly sized, but taller Countryman crossover SUV.) Two engines are offered. The base model has a 134-horsepower turbocharged 3-cylinder engine, while the S model is powered by a 189-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder and the John Cooper Works ALL4 has a 228-hp version of that engine. There is a choice of 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmissions. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel-drive models are badged ALL4. The longer, heavier Clubman retains most of Mini’s driving-fun quotient, but has more passenger and cargo room than the Hardtop—along with a better ride. As with other Minis, the controls are quirky and can be difficult to master. The Clubman is a good choice for Mini loyalists who need more room, but keep in mind that prices quickly escalate when options are added and can be quite high for a small car.
