The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Caliber has a very practical layout and quite a few innovative features to get excited about, but it's lacking in driving enjoyment or refinement--even compared to its low-priced competition. More space plus the MINI Cooper’s same extroverted personality make the 2009 MINI Cooper Clubman desirable.
