Driving through the cobblestone streets of Copenhagen is an easy task for the Mini, and if one decides to do a lot of shopping including some Danish Furniture, the car has the space for that too.

Planning a visit to Copenhagen? The Mini Cooper SD Clubman ALL4 is the car you need.

But perhaps the most recognizable feature of the Clubman is the Split rear doors, quite unique in the segment and the auto industry, which serve as a very versatile access to the boot space. The small doors can be opened individually and provide one of the easiest ways to load/unload the boot space. The Clubman is perhaps the more muscular of the cars from the British brand, with the big grille and beefed up body styling. Despite the overall much larger dimensions of the Clubman, the signature driving dynamics of a Mini-the agile very responsive control is not remiss.

The SD ALL4 variant is the Top Diesel trim of the Clubman. The engine is a 2L 4-Cylinder Diesel that makes 190 horsepower and ensures a responsive supply of power, one can load the Clubman’s 350L boot, or even expand the area but splitting down the seats and making it a humongous 1250 litres and still feel the lively engine deliver the power for a very expressive Mini driving experience. The power passes through the TwinPower Twin Turbochargers and boosts  This is also courtesy of the ALL4- all wheel drive engine which always distributes the power between the front and the rear for a very planted and confident drive.

Several parts of Copenhagen are centuries old, and there is a perfect blend that exists between modern constructions which have been developed with much planning so as to not disrupt the historic aura that the city has.
