The MINI Cooper Clubman incorporates almost all of its charisma from its shorter predecessor, the MINI Cooper hardtop. It is surprisingly fascinating and a great coupe to own and drive on. The car is brimming with character and delivers extremely comfortable rides. It is a spacious and splurging one. It can simply be defined as if it looks like a splurge and feels like a steel.
This coupe incorporates many changes and has become a good one amalgamating wonderful feature. From the front to rear there is a roof line that is divided into two sides. It gives a great physical as well as visual strength to the roof. The roof color is path driven towards the back bumper. There is an extra door on the right side which is designated with a name “club door”; that can be opened after the front door is opened. It can be used by installing toddlers into the safety seat integrated, or provides easier access when the rear seats are folded.
The Mini Clubman’s retro-styled interior appeals to most reviewers who say that the cabin is constructed with attractive materials. The entry-level Cooper is powered by a 1.6-liter inline-four cylinder that sports parent company BMW’s flexible VALVETRONIC variable valve timing technology and produces 121 horsepower and 118 lb-ft of torque at 4,250 revs. The space is an inevitable compromise of the Countryman’s compact exterior dimensions, but with a typical sedan’s trunk behind the rear seats and up to 40 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down, there’s still enough space for even a busy daily routine.
It has a very good performance, plus available ALL4 all-wheel drive; there are many ways to outfit a Countryman. Both manual and automatic six-speed transmissions are also available. Compared to other MINIs, the Countryman feels bigger from behind the wheel due to its increased ride height and width, and that dilutes some of the MINI’s trademark glued-to-the-road driving character.
The models of this coupe are integrated with the front sides and full length side curtained air bags to traction and stability control systems and a tire pressure monitoring system. Reviewers find that the front seats are adequately comfortable and say there’s a surprising amount of head- and legroom in the back seat, which can accommodate two adults. It has back to back safety equipments; this coupe is mechanically and structurally identical with the older ones when it comes to the safety point of view.
Incorporated with typical sedan’s trunk behind the rear seats and up to 40 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down, there’s still enough space for even a busy daily routine. This couple is like really versatile and exceptional. This coupe isn’t pretentious but owns good and flawless features with great speed, wonderful look and high-end performance. Once you own this coupe, it could garner a great comfort and appreciation for sure.
An impressive 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway for the stick-shifted model, while opting for the automatic dings highway mileage by one mpg. The MINI Cooper Clubman offers three engines. Base models use a 121-horsepower 1.6-liter 4-cylinder rated at 27 miles per gallon city/35 mpg Hwy with a manual or 25 mpg city/30 mpg Hwy with an optional automatic.
Comfort and Quality:
The Countryman is still extraordinarily surefooted, and you also get a more compliant ride than the MINI norm as a result of the extra suspension travel. If you want to be more glued to the road, the stiffer sport suspension is your ticket to ride, especially with the optional 18-in wheels.
