2011 Mini Cooper Clubman Review

The 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman is a good choice for shoppers who want a small car that’s fun to drive and don’t need a lot of passenger or cargo space.

Pros & Cons

  • Sprightly performance
  • Many interior features
  • Strong list of standard safety features
  • Cramped back seat
  • Less cargo space than competitors

New for 2011

  • Performance-oriented Cooper S and John Cooper Works trims
  • Standard HD and satellite radio
  • Introduction of Mini Connected and Mini Connected with navigation

2011 Mini Cooper Clubman Overview

The 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman is the slightly-stretched version of the Mini Cooper. Each version of the Cooper Clubman (Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works) has a variation of a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. For the best performance, choose the Cooper S and John Cooper Works models, whose engines are turbocharged. Though it is the least powerful, the base Cooper Clubman gets the best fuel economy, at an EPA-estimated 28/35 mpg city/highway with the standard manual transmission.

Although the Cooper Clubman has more passenger room than the 2011 Mini Cooper Hardtop, its interior accommodations may still be too small for some buyers. Reviewers said front-seat comfort is okay for the class, but the rear seat is only comfortable for short trips. With the rear seats in use, there’s very little cargo space (only 9.18 cubic feet), but its cargo capacity does increase significantly when the rear seats are folded.

Inside, the 2011 Cooper Clubman has a lot of interior features. Each model comes with satellite and HD radio, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and keyless entry. If you want USB connectivity or Bluetooth, those features were optional, so you’ll have to hunt for a model with them. Mini Connected, which is Mini’s infotainment system, was new for 2011. It comes with a USB port and Bluetooth, and some versions have navigation.

The 2011 Cooper Clubman wasn’t crash tested, but it has a lot of safety features, including six airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control and cornering brake control.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2011 Nissan Juke is a small crossover that stands out with outstanding safety ratings, available all-wheel drive and good performance. But like the Cooper Clubman, the Juke comes up short for rear passenger and cargo space. Inside, the Juke has more standard features than the Cooper Clubman. The Juke also has great handling, but its fuel economy is low for the class.

The 2011 Volkswagen Golf is a good alternative to the Mini Cooper Clubman because in addition to having high safety scores and great performance, it has lots of room for people and cargo. Inside, the Golf also has a quality interior and a list of standard features that’s typical for the class. The Golf’s fuel economy ratings are lower than the Cooper Clubman’s, but the Golf TDI, which has a diesel engine, has very high ratings.
