2019 Mini Clubman – Automotive Review

2019 Mini Clubman – Automotive Review

A small car with a big personality. “Even Barbie would trade in her hot pink Volkswagen beetle for a more sophisticated Mini Clubman.”

Summary

From the outside, the Clubman looks like a small vehicle that would be a tight fit, but once inside, you would be pleasantly surprised. The best part is while driving; somehow, everything coming at you doesn’t feel like it’s a monster truck! Mini Clubman’s signature bubbles are just a part of what makes this vehicle fun, just look at how many cars are bringing on that slick circular look. While the touchscreen and Apple Carplay, will have those speakers and you singing some sweet summer tunes all the way to a golf tournament. The unique trunk is what first caught my attention.  The Clubman’s exclusive vertical split, double doors open nice and wide, providing easy access to a compact space just big enough for those items you found at the farmers market. However, if you need any more room than that, the 40:40:20 split back seats will have to come down. To give you an idea of how much space there is in the back, my compact umbrella stroller wouldn’t fit without the backseat being folded down. Those with multiple kids would not find this vehicle very efficient for their needs, but then again, not every car is made to be a mom mobile. Driving the Clubman was fun and free, making me feel like I was always headed to the beach on a perfect summer day. It’s peppy, relaxing, and gets you to where you are heading. I bet even Barbie would trade her hot pink Volkswagen beetle for a more sophisticated Mini Clubman.

Highlights

Have you ever looked at the nose of a vehicle and thought that is one mean looking car? Well, I guarantee that will never happen with the Mini Clubman.  What it will have is a brand new hexagonal radiator grille, and LED fog lights.  The car is meant to be customized and made to perfectly suit your taste, with things like; LED rear lamps that can come with the optional union jack design or a range of stripe designs and roof colors and graphics.

Tech & Safety

Combine that with the standard ALL4 All-Wheel Drive system and you have a car that can react faster than the best race car driver.
