Review: 2017 Mini John Cooper Works Clubman ALL4
Sep 27, The Mini Clubman JCW comes with a horsepower turbocharged engine and a whole bunch of nicely executed quirks to match its fun.2017
So who is the Clubman JCW for? Well, maybe a person who loves the Mini brand like myself , and wants more room for people and belongings. Snap, crackle, pop. Under the hood of the JCW Clubman is a turbocharged 2. The sprint from miles per hour comes in a respectable, but not blistering, 6.
Oct 5, Minis stopped making fiscal and literal sense when they ceased being mini in size or price. That isn't to say all Minis lack fundamental appeal.

Minis stopped making fiscal and literal sense when they ceased being mini in size or price. Take, for example, the Clubman. It has distinct styling and avoids the harsh ride quality that plagues much of the Mini lineup, thanks in part to its longer wheelbase. The sporty John Cooper Works package unravels that appeal. Where lesser Clubmans exist at the precipice of reason due to being more expensive and tighter inside than other small hatchbacks and wagons, the JCW sails over the edge.

And I will admit that at first, I was disappointed. I like Mini Coopers. I had a R56 that I dumped after monstrous repair bills, only to promptly buy a new F56 immediately after, because I am an idiot. I parted ways with that car when I moved to New York and have missed it ever since. It would have made a great city car.
You might think that its snorty hp turbocharged engine and sport-tuned suspension would enhance the Clubman's already fun and funky personality, but instead the JCW's tepid acceleration and harsh ride spoil the experience. While its retro styling is evident inside and out, the aesthetic doesn't appeal to everyone. The cheaper and cheekier Clubman S offers a better balance of price, performance, and driving enjoyment than the ultimately unsatisfying JCW version. Not much. Mini has included its telematics system as standard across the Clubman range, including the Clubman JCW model.
