You might remember a couple of weeks ago we shared our hands-on customization experience designing our very own MINI Clubman. Just in case you forgot, click here to catch up.

The first thing we did right after the unveiling? Obviously, take our new burgundy beast out for a quick rip in the city. Enjoying the luxurious blue Chester Leather interior, which contrasts perfectly with the exterior, we hit the road to explore the city like never before. With the versatility and agility that comes with the super powerful BMW engine, we zoomed around the city, in Eco mode of course, popping in and out of some of Toronto’s hottest spots and best kept secrets.

Can we talk about how quick and easy it is to jump in and out of the car completely key free!?

With the Clubman, all you have to do is click the button on the door handle to unlock, by simply having the key in your pocket or bag, the car knows you’re close by. This is especially helpful in cold weather when all you want to do is get into the car and fire up those seat warmers!

Plus, with MINI Connected or Apple CarPlay we’re able to pick up on whatever tunes we were streaming inside without missing a beat, make a quick hands-free call or send a text using voice commands. The car will even read texts aloud while you’re driving! Just make sure you pay attention to the road.

One of the coolest features is the hands-free Park Assist. Whether you need to squeeze into a tight spot on those closely guarded residential streets, or you just like to be part of the future, Park Assist will blow your mind and save you time parking. No more right-point parallel parking jobs.

Sounds cool right? Well let’s stop with all the lip service and watch it all in action! Push play below and experience our journey from start to finish with the 2018 MINI Clubman.
