Now in its third year of production, the 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman offers more room and added versatility over the base MINI Cooper.
The Clubman is just over 10 inches longer than the base MINI Cooper and boasts 8.8 more cubic feet of cargo space. Access to this additional space is provided by rear courier barn doors, while easy access to the rear seat is provided by a passenger side half door.
The base engine for the Clubman is a 118 horsepower 1.6-liter inline-4. A 172 horsepower turbocharged version of this engine is also available on the Clubman S and is tuned to 208 horsepower on the range-topping John Cooper Works model. Power is sent to the front wheels through either a 6-speed manual or available 6-speed automatic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
Here are the highest and lowest EPA estimates for fuel economy:
Base MSRP for the 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman is $20,450. A John Cooper Works model will start at $31,000. The Clubman is backed by a 4-year, 50,000-mile powertrain warranty.
With undeniable MINI styling, added room, and available turbocharged powerplants, the Clubman makes for a terrific blend of iconic styling, peppy performance and practical versatility.
