The interior is a nice evolution of the Mini theme to a more 'grown-up' premium look. A shame the same can't be said of the exterior - it's nice and cutesy et al, but lacks detail (IMO) to match the inside.

Not quite sure why they decided to go with horizontal tailights - they look wrong. The whole rear end pretty much looks rubbish IMO.

They'll have to make the next one bigger, there's no room for any more badges on the back of this one.

I think this is a great evolution of the current Clubman. Very sophisticated! Good job on this one Mini.

Agreed. In no way does it say "Mini" from behind. It's not unattractive, but the outgoing Clubman is the better looking one.

I love it. If it had been out a month ago instead of a year from now, I might have bought this instead.

Horizontal taillamps aside, I love this.

I adore this. It looks classy and I actually like the horizontal tail-lamps. A huge step up from the previous Clubman.

I agree as well. It actually fits the purpose quite well. Though, it pretty much renders the Cooper Hardtop 4-Door absolutely useless.

The New Clubman

I vastly prefer the Clubman and I'm confounded as to why Mini has them both. Mini just keeps slicing its pie smaller and smaller.
