The 2016 MINI Clubman S Has "Controversial Looks"

evo asks, "can the way it drives make up for those controversial looks?" It decides:
. . . The Clubman has a better ride than its hatchback cousins, with additional suppleness to how it deals with harsh surfaces. The longer wheelbase adds an additional level of body control when the undulations come thick and fast and the corners are long and open. The only issue is from the standard-fit Pirelli Cinturato tyres. As we’ve found on our JCW long-termer, they simply aren’t up to the task, relinquishing grip far too early in corners with a sensation of the sidewalls falling in on themselves. It’s enough to make you back off and stop enjoying all that the Clubman has to offer. . . .
