The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A big-bodied extrovert, the 2011 MINI Cooper Clubman's the most desirable MINI for anyone beyond their single stage of life. A punchy turbo engine, crisp handling, and a dual-clutch gearbox give the 2011 Volkswagen GTI a performance profile that's anything but stodgy.
