MINI Countryman vs. MINI Clubman

The new MINI lineup serves up an abundance of sophistication, but after touring the lineup you may find yourself asking if the MINI Countryman or MINI Clubman is the better option for you. The Countryman is a subcompact SUV that will generally prove to be a solid choice for families, while the Clubman serves up dynamic performance in a quintessential MINI package with plenty of available accessories. Find out your best choice by following this guide to both models with your Los Angeles-area MINI dealership.

Starting Price

The MINI Clubman is a bit more modestly priced for drivers looking for the MINI feel on a budget:

  • MINI Clubman – MSRP from $24,800
  • MINI Countryman – MSRP from $26,600

Passenger and Cargo Space

The MINI Clubman interior offers many of the same premium features as the MINI Countryman interior, but these two models fit into slightly different vehicle segments tailored to different lifestyle needs:
