    How stupid of Mini to have the door design only work for left hand drive markets… The Countyman can’t come soon enough. This car will disappear from the new car price lists very soon in my opinion.

  • bangel

    You know i have never seen a mini on the move with more than 2 up , makes the rear doors a non issue , most are bought by single chics or dudes .

    The clubman is not that attractive , but no doubt it drives well .

  • Shak

    This car doesn’t seem to have had very much thought put into it. The door being on the wrong side is a mistake than can be forgiven, but the fact that its design requires the drivers door to be open is just plain stupid. And also the way the left barn door must be closed for the right to close is just a really big pain.

      The drivers door probably has to be opened first because of the safety – the doors lock in to make a B (??) pillar – similar to the Mazda RX8, the front door must be open before the rear (suicide) door can be opened and the rear door must be shut first so that the doors lock together to form a B pillar

    Beautiful car.

    To all those whinging about which side the 3rd door should be on – Try loading a wheelchair from the drivers side without the extra width of the 3rd door.

    gOOD LUCK WITH THAT! lol

    I have owned a Clubman for 3 years (in the UK), in fact have just ordered another one. I can tell you that the club-door on the RH side is a non-issue, in fact it’s very convenient because as the driver you can so easily put things on the back seat rather than walk round the car. On the rare occasion when someone is in the back, you simply park where it does not matter. It is amazing how this one feature of what is an excellent car, gets so much bad press, usually from people who never owned one.

      Billy, as I said in the review, it’s the only thing that is worth noting as the car itself is very good. More importantly, you can get in from the passenger side rather easily anyway.

    Quite a cool car, for smaller people and singles I suppose.

    I am a fat bast@rd and I own 2 Minis and space or comfort isn’t an issue. One of the Mini’s is a Clubman S and I also like the door arrangement.

  • SC

    I love the look of minis, but I could never bring myself to own one because they are just too girly for my taste. I cop enough girl car jokes driving a Golf GTI so would hate to think of the comments I’d cop for rocking up in one of these…

    THIS MINI IS SO GAY ITS SO RETARTED

  • Flanderz

    Well I just bought one, due to pick it up in a few days. So I’ll let you know if the 3rd door is such an issue. Sure it’d be good to have the door on the left hand side, but in reality for me, on the rare occasion I would use the back seat for a 3rd or 4th passenger. They would usually be loaded up in a driveway, and unloaded at a parking lot. So the whole oncoming traffic problem is no issue for me. And besides all that, I’ve always LOVED the little panelvan look.
