2011 MINI Cooper Clubman Comfort & Quality

7.0
Comfort & Quality

Like the original Mini Countryman and Traveller, the 2011 MINI Cooper Clubman adds essential rear-seat room and cargo space to the Cooper hatch's platform, making it easier to access and use.

Despite the minimal road noise, every MINI we've tested have had their share of creaks, squeaks, and rattles from the interior plastic trim pieces--an indication that the style and panache of the interior's design comes at the cost of material and build quality, and something you don't expect given the MINI's steep price tag.

A few inches of wheelbase gives the 2011 MINI Cooper Clubman a far more practical rear seat and cargo area; quality's still an issue.
At 9.4 inches longer overall and 3.2 inches longer in wheelbase than the Cooper hatchback, it's still compact enough to be small, while improving comfort throughout the cabin.

Access to the 32.6 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded or 9.1 cubic feet with the seats up is provided by the rear split-opening door, and made truly useful with a flat load floor.
