Our friend Gary Anderson recently wrote a review for Leftlanenews.com that’s worth a read for both the diehard Clubman fan or the skeptic. Here’s an excerpt:
If you’ve been intriqued with the cute look of the new MINI, but just couldn’t justify it because it just wasn’t suitable as a family car or practical all-purpose daily driver, the Clubman is definitely worth a closer look. All you need to decide is whether you’re going for performance or economy in your purchase, to help you decide whether to opt for a manual-transmission turbocharged Clubman S Clubman, or at the other extreme, an automatic transmission Clubman.
No matter which you select, you can be sure of three things. The design will be unique, the MINI you order will express your individuality, and you’ll have a car that handles more like a go-kart than anything else that nearly as practical on the road today.
