Once upon a time, upgrading to a larger vehicle to accommodate your growing family meant settling for a cumbersome and inelegant minivan — and the attached perception that driving one would make you less cool. No such problem exists today when it comes to the family-friendly and beautifully crafted 2018 MINI Clubman. Not only is the Clubman perfect for your adult needs, but it satisfies your inner child’s need for excitement.

With seating for up to five adults and considerable front- and second-row headroom and legroom, the 2018 MINI Clubman is a spacious and comfortable choice for your family. Not only is it great for getting the kids to school and soccer practice, but with 17.5 cubic feet of cargo volume in the trunk and a maximum 47.9 cubic feet of cargo volume with the second row folded flat, it’s also useful for carrying all of their gear and goodies.

MINI makes sure that all of your storage needs are more easily met with the Clubman’s signature split rear doors, which serve the dual purposes of make loading and unloading easier and making sure that you look good doing it. Adding to that functionality is the MINI Clubman’s optional Comfort Access keyless entry feature, which allows you to open the rear doors by waving your foot beneath the bumper.

The functionality of the 2018 Clubman doesn’t come at the cost of MINI’s reputation for being fun to drive. The 2018 MINI Clubman is powered at base by a capable 1.5-liter MINI TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder that delivers 134 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. If you want more thrills, you can upgrade to the 2.0-liter MINI TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder, which delivers 189 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque for the Cooper S and 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque for the John Cooper Works ALL4.

The 2018 MINI Clubman also provides the same legendary go-kart handling that has been a MINI standard since its inception. With front MacPherson struts and a rear multi-link suspension, available MINI Driving Modes and optional ALL4 all-wheel drive system, the 2018 Clubman is as capable and as thrilling as any MINI ever built despite its clever disguise as unassuming family hauler.

Versatility and exhilaration are two of the key concepts at the heart of the 2018 MINI Clubman. Every time you start it up, whether it’s for a cross-country road trip or a crosstown grocery run, you’re sure to experience the thrill of the road as only MINI can deliver it.
