CNET Contends MINI Clubvan Is A Mistake

CNET believes MINI droppedthe ball when it designed the upcoming MINI Clubvan from their Clubman.  Writer Wayne Cunningham asserts:
The Clubvan is essentially a panel van. Mini covered up the rear side windows, painted a company logo on the side, then apparently went to the pub and called it a good day's work. In glowing text, Mini's press release suggests that the Clubvan would be a great delivery truck for urban boutique stores.
But no matter how many windows the company covers up, it won't make the Clubman any bigger, so most companies would be better served by something like the Ford TransitConnect.
