Mini Clubman dimensions

All the vital measurements for the Mini Clubman family car, including length and width, boot space and interior dimensions

It might be a Mini but there’s nothing compact about the Clubman. It’s a five-door hatchback, with enough space for a family, just like an Audi A3 or Ford Focus. But is it the right size for you? Will your passengers fit in the back? Read on to find out.

 

Mini Clubman dimensions: exterior

The Clubman is around the same length as a VW Golf: roughly 10cm (4in) shorter than the average family car. This will make it a little easier to squeeze into parking spaces, but it’s not compact enough to feel like a little city car.

It doesn’t have a noticeable impact on the space inside because the distance between the front and rear wheels - known as the wheelbase - is average for a family car. This measurement is a good indication of how spacious a car will feel to passengers.

Mini Clubman boot space

The boot opens in style, with two side-hinged doors, but there’s nothing radical about the space inside. At 360 litres with the seats up, it’s pretty average for this type of car. With space for two suitcases and a couple of small bags, you’re unlikely to miss the extra 20 litres you would get in an Audi A3 or VW Golf.

Mini Clubman dimensions: interior

There’s plenty of headroom in the Clubman, thanks to a roof that doesn’t curve down over the rear seats, but remains level until it meets the back window of the car. There’s a good amount of interior space for four adults, but it does feel cramped if you’ve got a tall passenger sat behind a tall driver who has pushed the seat back. The 820mm of rear legroom is noticeably less than the 903mm in the VW Golf and 909mm in the Mazda 3.

Mini Clubman towing capacity

Few Mini Clubmans will be used for towing, but the option is there. Some four wheel drive models, called All4, have the largest capacity and can tow an unbraked trailer weighing up to 750kg, or a larger trailer or caravan weighing twice as much.

Mini Clubman weight

You wouldn’t necessarily know it from the nippy way that it steers, but even the lightest Mini Clubman is edging towards a weight of one and a half tonnes. Heaviest of the range are the All4 four-wheel drive models.

Mini Clubman fuel tank capacity

The Clubman’s 48-litre fuel tank should give you more than 400 miles between fill-ups unless you opt for the petrol-powered All4 model, which uses more fuel and will need to stop every 300 miles or so.

Mini Clubman turning circle

The Clubman is a little less manoeuvrable than the average family car, requiring 11.3m to turn back on itself. That’s almost a metre more than the Skoda Octavia and Peugeot 308 - enough to require a five-point turn on some roads.
