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

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!!!
