The Mini Clubman is a new version of the Mini Cooper. The clubman is longer than the original; it has got more leg room in the second row, and has a brand new backdoor. The clubman is much easier to get in rather than the original version. An improvement over the previous model which had a hunched back door, the new Clubman has doors which swing out to give you plenty of wide access to the cargo space. If that is not enough, with an easy one-hand gesture, you can increase the cargo space by pulling the rear seats down. This increases the cargo capacity to 32.6 cubic feet.
Overall, style-wise, it is a worthy contender for the top spot. On the whole, it is a family car. Seat belt buckles are easy to buckle and also the latch connectors are easy to install. The only thing that might bug a user is that the Mini Clubman has its club door only on the right side of the vehicle.
