>With all the extra room in the rear, should we expect the Clubman to carry a spare tire and do without runflats?
As with the coupe, the MINI Clubman Cooper and One will be getting a spare under the rear of the car. And as with the MCS coupe, the Clubman S will not. Why? Simple answer: the front brake rotor on the MCS and MCS Clubman (or MCScm if you will) is too large to fit the space-saver spare. However the Cooper and One models have a slightly smaller brake set-up and thus the spare in the rear.
If you must go without runflats, we’d strong suggest a charged phone and a MINI Mobility kit (includes compressor and tire sealant) in the boot.
