The Mini Clubman is a small estate based on the Mini hatch. The current model is the second generation and was launched in early 2015 before going on sale in the UK later that year.

Like the Mini hatch, the Clubman models are built here in the UK at Mini’s factory in Cowley, Oxfordshire.

As an estate version of the five-door Mini hatch, the Mini Clubman doesn’t have any direct competitors. Exterior size is comparable to a Volkswagen Golf or similar, as is boot space, but interior space falls somewhere between a Golf and the smaller Polo and similar cars. The Clubman is also available in a high-performance John Cooper Works (JCW) specification.

The Mini Clubman has received generally positive scores from the UK motoring media, with fairly similar scoring for the Top-spec JCW model. It has received particular praise for its high level of personalisation and overall comfort. However, it has also been criticised for numerous styling clichés that compromise its functionality, as well as being relatively expensive. The JCW version has also been criticised for not being as good to drive as similarly-priced rivals.

In its 2021 owners’ survey, What Car? rated the Mini Clubman in a very creditable fifth place on its list of the most reliable family cars.
