2020 MINI Cooper Clubman Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 7.6

The 2020 Mini Cooper Clubman is one of the sportiest vehicles in the subcompact car class. It offers snappy acceleration, spry handling, and a firm but comfortable ride. However, the Clubman’s fuel economy is low by class standards.

  • "If you've spent any time behind the wheel of a Mini Cooper, you'll expect the Clubman to offer a lot of driving enjoyment -- and it certainly delivers. Its larger size certainly dulls its agility, but its handling and steering are excellent in virtually all forms. The Cooper S Clubman has some serious pop. The John Cooper Works is even better." -- Autotrader
  • "This maximum Mini is still low-slung and feels like it hugs the road, but cornering isn't as sharp as the regular Mini Cooper. The Clubman has slightly softer demeanor. While the steering is quick and possesses a dash of feedback, a spirited drive reveals the car's limitations, with a less precise nature than smaller Minis." -- Consumer Reports (2017)
  • "Minis are known for being youthful and fun, but 'youthful' was just a nice way of saying noisy, unrefined, and stiff-riding round town. We were pleased to find the latest ... Mini Clubman is still fun and engaging, but without those downsides. It's quiet, with little wind noise at speed, and even the engine growl at full throttle is nicely subdued." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)

Acceleration and Power

The entry-level Mini Clubman Cooper S has a 189-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard; an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are available. This engine feels punchy and has plenty of power to hustle the Clubman around town and up to highway speeds.

The Clubman John Cooper Works has an uprated version of this engine with 301 horsepower, as well as standard all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine puts the Clubman in true hot hatchback territory. It can slingshot the Mini from zero to 60 mph in under five seconds.

Neither engine is very light on fuel though, at least compared to other models in the subcompact car class. The Cooper S gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway (23/32 mpg city/highway with all-wheel drive). The John Cooper Works model gets 23/31 mpg city/highway.

  • "Unleashing 301 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque could conceivably overwhelm the front wheels, but that's when the All4 all-wheel-drive system sends as much as 50% of that power to the rear wheels. You'll feel a slight tug of torque steer to the right if you stomp the gas pedal from a standstill. But it requires minimal wheel correction to maintain your intended path. The proportioning of that power is seamless as far as the driver is concerned. Shifts are quick in automatic mode, and the Clubman gathers speed with ease." -- Edmunds
  • "The Cooper S version sports a gutsier 189 horsepower and we find this an ideal middle ground in terms of power, ride quality, refinement, equipment and cost." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Handling and Braking

The Mini Clubman rewards drivers with spry and athletic handling. The steering is quick, and the car remains stable around turns. The brakes provide assertive stopping power. The Clubman’s ride quality is firm and somewhat jittery on rough roads but not to the point of discomfort.

  • "The Cooper S Clubman scores high marks for its athletic handling, but this sometimes comes at the expense of ride comfort." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Clubman is a stopping superstar. The brakes are smooth to operate in everyday driving and feel stable and confident under panic-stop conditions. In performance testing, the Clubman needed only 107 feet to stop from 60 mph, a commendable result considering the all-season tires." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Handling isn't quite as sharp as the regular Mini Cooper, but the Clubman still hugs the road nicely, turns into corners with verve, and snakes through the avoidance maneuver at our test track with ease." -- Consumer Reports (2017)
