This Clubman is another successful spin off from the modern Mini revival. The Clubman is a stretched Mini hatch with a small third door at the rear. It may look unusual at the back but at the front it keeps the Mini's retro look. Being a larger Mini you get more space for greater practicality.
As you can see from the table below, the Cooper S sits in group 30. This is quite high compared to the rest of the range. The Cooper S has a more powerful engine. Engine size is a factor insurers look out when calculating an insurance quote.
If you're looking to buy a Clubman but have a mini budget it might be wise to pick the Mini One Clubman, this sits in insurance group 13 so insuring this model could be cheaper.
Another factor to consider is the tax band the Clubman sits in. The Mini One D (Sport Chili pack) sits in category B. 12 month road tax is only £20, whereas the Mini Cooper S sits in band E, which costs £125 to tax for a year (Tax rates correct as of 6/02/2014).
