The Clubman is not a mini car in any sense and measures close to 4.3 meters in length. The wheelbase measures 2670mm and the Clubman is 1800mm wide. The Clubman is a 6-door estate (body style) with 2 doors at the rear which Mini calls split-doors that open in almirah-like fashion. The doors open up the 360-litre boot that can be expanded in volume to 1250-litres when the rear seats are folded.

The Mini Clubman Cooper S that we get in India is in its second-generation and gets an 8-speed automatic transmission paired with a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that dishes out 192PS of maximum power and 280Nm of maximum torque from as low as 1250 rpm. The FWD Clubman is no slouch when it comes to outright performance, it can do a 0-100kmph in 7.2 seconds while fuel efficiency is claimed to be 13.8 kmpl.

The Mini Clubman Cooper S is relatively loaded as well. It gets features like park assist, HUD, active cruise control, LED headlights and easy Opener for the rear doors allowing contactless access with just a wave of the foot underneath.

Other big luxury hatchbacks like the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and Volvo V40 CrossCountry are priced significantly lower than the Clubman.
