Let's start with a superlative. The 2016 Mini Cooper Clubman is the longest Mini model yet. Stretching to 168.3 inches from nose to tail, it's just over a foot longer than the previous-generation Clubman model. Heck, it's more than 6 inches longer than the Countryman CUV.
But it almost had to be this way. The dimensions of the new Cooper four-door that joined the lineup this generation are so close to the first-generation Clubman, that the new model had to grow significantly to justify its existence. . . .
