Here is a brand new comparison we haven’t seen before. Cars.com pit the MINI Cooper Clubman against the new Scion xB and the Smart ForTwo. The results were interesting.
Did the Clubman win biggest head-turner? That went to the ForTwo. It didn’t win the performance category either. In fact, you have to scroll down to the ride and handling category before you see a Clubman victory.
>The compliant suspension offers the comfort expected by everyday drivers without diluting the car’s handling abilities, which are impressive.
It also won best cabin aesthetics, which shouldn’t be surprising. But, that’s all it did win, yet still managed to pull off the Editor’s Choice award. I’m not saying it shouldn’t have won. I am, however, questioning the math used to calculate the outcome.
