Long story short my wife has significant knee issues and has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. Climbing in and out of the BMW 520d and using the clutch has been difficult for her. Plus, we need a second car.

Enter the Mini Clubman. It’s big enough for the four of us for the school run, gets good mileage/sips fuel, and the driving position is more comfortable. An automatic transmission means no more stomping on the clutch with a knee that has no cartilage. The 1.6L engine and very low CO2 emissions means one of the lowest tax brackets in Belgium.

What say, ye, opponauts?
