With hot-hatch horsepower and some sprightly characteristics, the JCW Clubman is a hoot.
As part of a comprehensive update for the 2020 model year, the Mini John Cooper Works Clubman picked up a whole bunch of power, giving the small wagon a much-needed dose of character.
Character doesn't mean it's perfect -- because it sure isn't -- but it does mean that this latest go-fast Mini has a unique feeling that more sporty-leaning drivers will appreciate.
If you're in the hot-hatch market, there are a fair few options available.
If you want to keep the price down but the power high, competitors like the Honda Civic Type R and Hyundai Veloster N are both excellent choices.
Reach a little higher on the price chart and you can scoop up a Volkswagen Golf R for about the same dough as the Mini, too.
These cars can get expensive in a hurry.
The 2020 Mini John Cooper Works Clubman really stepped its game up.
It now has enough power to stay consistently interesting, and its sharp on-road demeanor means every drive can turn into a fun one, even if that's not necessarily what you're in the mood for.
It might be small, but the JCW Clubman packs a sizable punch.
