2010 Mini Clubman Owners Manual – The 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman is drawn from the very same taffy as the MINI Cooper hatchback and convertible, but it’s extended out and brings entrance doors in an effort to make the endearing MINI Cooper a bit more useful. With a base price of $19,105 for the Clubman and $22,545 for the Clubman S, the excellent competition for the MINI wagon includes the loves of the 2010 Volkswagen GTI, the 2010 Audi A3, and the 2010 Mazda3 and Mazdaspeed3.
All the styling hallmarks of the Cooper hatchback bring more than on the 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman, with a few more cutlines and a more top to the bottom rear end. The timeless put-eyed headlamps, the chromed grille’s “Smile,” the top to the bottom windscreen, and reduced, the flat roof structure of the classic Mini Coopers are right here.
The Clubman’s elongated body remains real to make even in the back again, in which the entrance doors and tail are modeled following the 1960s wagons like the Mini Countryman and Traveller. A few cues separate the base Clubman from the S, most noticeably the quietly domed hood more than the S’ turbocharger. The respect to the MINI’s earlier is significantly less accurate inside of the Clubman, where a duplicate of the existing Cooper’s dash hangs. In certain techniques, it’s just plain crazy.
The big, optimistic 160-mph speedometer in the middle of the dash is lifted from aged Minis, but it’s simply annoying there, with a razor-sharp glare and lots of inlaid shows out of the driver’s sightlines. The dash also has lots of little toggle changes, switches, and levers rendered in chrome, as nicely as some plasticky, lightweight-sensing switchgear. It’s chaotic-but it’s for some reason single about a sectors-and-wings theme that charms aside its main ergonomic and high-quality mistakes.
Sprightly performance carries over nearly undamaged from the Cooper hatchback into the MINI Clubman wagon. The engines and gearboxes, in addition to nearly all of the mechanicals, are replicated here, and also with the added weight, the Clubman is a nimble performer. Car and Driver do explain there is “no added energy from both engines to counteract [the] additional heft” of the MINI Cooper Clubman. LeftLane Information says the length and entrance doors “include just over 200 pounds to the bodyweight of the car.”
