The car lost its asymmetric – now it has four standard doors on both sides, whereas before the left had one full door, but the right had one and a half. Half Clubdoor opened against the progress principle as in the coupe Mazda RX-8. But the rear swing splitdoors remained in place.

    Hi asking for my dad.
    For the Cooper, how is the maintenance like?
    Fuel consumption, insurance and regular servicing cost (AD versus outside workshops) ?
    If getting used, anything to look out for?
    Thanks!

    The clubman looks great, more appealing than 5-door and countryman. To me the clubman looks like a compressed Range Rover Evoque!
