The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A big-bodied extrovert, the 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman's the most desirable MINI for anyone beyond their single stage of life. The 2009 Volkswagen GTI is the most conservative-looking of sporty hatches—and a bit pricey for a dressed-up Rabbit—but it redeems itself with the driving experience.
