We first saw the MINI Clubman concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005. The MINI Clubman range went on sale in the UK some two year's later in November 2007, a year after the second generation MINI was launched and six years after the reincarnation of the MINI hatch.
Based on the MINI hatch and taking inspiration from the original MINI Traveller, the Clubman or MINI Estate is 24cm longer with increased rear legroom, and is designed to sit five with easy access to the boot via the twin rear doors.
The MINI Clubman is currently offered in three derivates - the Cooper, Cooper D and Cooper S all with their own 1.6 engines. The Cooper comes with a 120 bhp 1.6 litre Petrol, the Cooper D a 110 bhp 1.6 litre Diesel Turbo and the Cooper S a 175 bhp 1.6 litre Petrol Turbocharged engine.
Prices start at £14,245 for the MINI Cooper Clubman and go up to £17,220 for the MINI Cooper S Clubman, which we are testing.
