This is the version of the Mini Cooper that isn't testosterone deficient. Other than that, looks just like another Mini.

who not a Hybrid Mini? Electric Mini?

No - went to Mini-Ute "Minute"

But if it gets larger SUV's off the road ( for those who really do not NEED the larger size car that is) then it is a good thing

The Mini Clubman weighs 2900lb. This thing is probably close to 4000lb. Whats the point of even calling it a "Mini"? Its just another overweight psuedo SUV.

Maybe they have WRC rally aspirations? Or maybe its a way to charge more for a car.
