Occasionally, I go on the MINIUSA site, and build a MINI. Went on there today, and they had added the new MINI Clubman.

Build one, or take a look at it online, and give us your take.

I was in the UK last week and they are bombarding the public with ads for it on TV. I think it looks pretty good, I still wouldn't buy one though.

I like it! It's really practical for road trips...enough space for bags for two. Big grin It has the horsepower to do a crosscountry trip! I wouldn't mind having one if I have the money  tongue  . Right now, maintaining one car on my own is bad enough.


Cheers,

I think they are ok but isn't the back door on the wrong side for right hand drive markets?

The Mini Clubman is completely useless for the UK (and anywhere else with right-hand drive cars). The rear door is on the right-hand side so when mother is dropping off the children at the school gate they'll clamber out on the right-hand side and then will get run down by a passing bus...I can see it now!

Mini says that if the door was put on the left-hand side they would have to move the fuel filler cap and the fuel line leading to the tank, blah blah blah! To me it's laziness on the manufacturer's side, and this car is meant to be British!!!
