Usually, the saying "Great things come in small packages" is uttered by very silly people, and liars. But on a few sweet occasions, it bears out majestically -- as with the champion of very small cars, the MINI. Introducing an even mightier MINI: the MINI Clubman.
Now making its American debut, the Clubman brings with it everything that's made the MINI line great, starting with its staggering "you-ification" capacity: over 44 exterior color combos and optional roof graphics like the checkered flag or Union Jack -- so even KJLZ traffic reporter Jim Guttierez'll see you're a man with unique aesthetic sensibilities. Just as crucial, the Clubman sport model's 172 turbocharged horses are catlike in their responsiveness, allowing you to smoothly navigate amongst bulky vehicles, oblivious bike messengers, and cats. What sets the Clubman further apart from its brethren? 32.8 cubic feet of cargo space, a passenger-side Clubdoor for easy backseat access, and '60s-style Split Rear Barn Doors -- which, along with your revealing mesh jersey, will make your tailgating party the boldest in the parking lot.
