The hot selling Mini Cooper has been a boon to BMW. The Cooper is one of the few upscale compact cars to find sales success in the US market.
The Mini line is expanding to include the new Cooper Clubman model. The 4-passenger Clubman adds about three inches in wheelbase and eleven inches in overall length to the Cooper. The change adds about three inches of much needed legroom to rear seat passengers and about 40% more cargo volume with the rear seats in use. A curbside access door and dual hinged cargo doors ease access to the newfound space. The Clubman retains the same powertrain options and fuel efficiency of the Cooper.
