How good does it look?

From the front, the Clubman looks like any other
MINI – curvy and cheeky, but on the driver’s side and rear, it’s all about those doors. The rear ‘barn-style’ doors are real headturners, while the Clubman’s other party piece – the rear opening ’suicide door’ gets overlooked – until it’s opened. The Clubman is evocative of the classic Mini Traveller, with its flat side window line, and boxy rear end and takes retro-cool to a new level.
