MINI Clubman Clubman review
The desirable Cooper D is a very funky way of going green. DrivingThe Clubman Cooper D’s driving enjoyment and performance are first rate. As with petrol versions of the sporty Clubman, it has precise steering, great body control and bags of character. The 1.6 litre turbodiesel engine rolex watches for sale is refined and never has to be pushed hard, while the ride is superb. EfficientDynamics has led the way in making quick and effective reductions in emissions on many of the make’s models and every new MINI. Features include a regenerative braking function, which uses brake energy to recharge a hi tech battery via the alternator, which results in less engine drag. The MINI is even more econom rolex watches for sale ical than conventional diesel superminis ‘green’ competition instead comes from the SEAT Ibiza ECOmotive, Polo Bluemotion and Skoda Fabia GreenLine. The six speed gearbox shifts just as keenly, and is not saddled with over long ratios, which can rolex watches for sale make for frustrating twisty road progress. EfficientDynamics does add a gearshift indicator though, while the stop start system’s operation is indicated by a warning symbol in the rev counter. The benefit of the Clubman is that rolex watches for sale extra rear door, opening onto a roomier rear cabin, while the twin rear doors reveal a larger boot than the standard hatch, too. But this extra practicality comes at little cost. Our test model averaged 57mpg an excellent result, and better even than the Polo Bluemotion and SEAT Ibiza ECOmotive. Retained vales are also excellent.
