Will Dron, Editor of Sunday Times said:

Dog owners have very specific requirements when it comes to their cars, which is why MINI’s partnership with Dogs Trust and goal of becoming the first officially dog-friendly car retailer by 2022 will be music to their ears. The work MINI is doing with canine behavior experts will no doubt pay dividends but already there’s a lot going for the MINI Clubman when it comes to man’s best friend: a low boot sill, the split rear doors, and a new dog pack, including a dog guard and rear compartment mat, help make travel much more comfortable for canine companions.

The MINI Clubman offers three performance options, from the iconic Cooper to the all-powerful John Cooper Works, with an optional ALL4 all-wheel-drive system. Available in Classic, Sport, and Exclusive trim levels, and the new Shadow Edition model, with prices starting from £23,505 OTR.

What fantastic categories for MINI to win at the News UK Motor Awards 2021. We’re proud that the MINI Electric is built at the home of the brand in Oxford, down the same line as our combustion engine cars and the MINI Clubman. We’ve recently partnered with Dogs Trust because it’s equally as important to us that our four-legged customers love being in a MINI as much as the drivers do, and the convenient split rear doors of the Clubman make it the perfect car for dog-owners, so we’re over the moon it’s been recognized as Dog-Friendly Car of the year.
