Another great review of the Clubman from the streets of Madrid. This time, it’s Canadian Driver.
>Think of it as the Mini Mullet – business in the front and party in the back.
>Although not a traditional five-door, the Clubman does indeed have a unique configuration of five hinged portals. Opening the passenger door gives access to a small rear-hinged “club” door (a la Honda Element) that makes accessing the roomier back seat less of a chore. Rounding out the count are two van-style rear doors – just like the ones on the original Traveller. I must confess, seeing those cute doors swing open for the first time had me flopping helplessly on the deck of Mini nostalgia.
