The 2008 MINI Cooper S Clubman is not a car that's easily classified.
And because the Cooper S Clubman has a backseat and room for cargo, it's not a pure sportscar like a Mazda RX-8.
Experts from TheCarConnection.com recommend these "other choices" for the 2008 MINI Cooper S Clubman because they offer practicality in a high-performance package.
The excellent MazdaSpeed3 is truly anonymous next to the MINI Cooper, but it performs better.
The A3 is another out-of-class MINI competitor, though with a few options, a Cooper S Clubman will quickly be in Audi pricing territory.
