What do you call a car with more cup-holders than seat-belts? A MINI Clubman. We’ve confirmed another small detail about the interior configuration of the R55 and thought it might be interesting to prospective owners. Of course there’s few things that enthusiasts disdain more than cup-holders in cars. However they are an essential part of interior design these days – for better or worse. So it must have been with some sarcastic pride that MINI designers were able to accommodate not three or four, but five full size cupholders throughout the car.

Obviously five makes a bit more sense in market that actually will have three seats in the back (the UK being one of them). However in the US, where there will only be four seats total, we can only imagine what the fifth will come in handy for. Fondue anyone?
