Too Much Performance?

Test Drive Now’s Steve Hammes recently reviewed the 2016 MINI Clubman. Overall, his comments about MINI’s newest and to-date, grandest model were positive. Specifically approved are the customizable leather seats, and numerous other options available. Interestingly, Steve would be happier if his demo Clubman S had its performance toned down a little bit.

I like the Clubman but giving it a low dose sedative might make me like it even more.

Definitely an interesting take on the torque that’s available on the Clubman S. Maybe MINI should add a “De-tuned” package to the line up of add-ons. What do you think MINI should call it?
