Boot dimensions

Hello,

I am looking at replacing my Wife's Golf with a Clubman Cooper D

Our main concern is the tiny boot, having visited a dealer and spent hours on the official website I still can't find the dimensions of the boot anywhere.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Bill

Strange that it does not show dimentions. 160 ltrs to 680 ltrs does not help much unless you can find out the cubic capacity of the golf then that will give you a better idea as to how much smaller it is.

I went from a reasonably roomy Corsa boot (I used to fill it with shopping each week) to a Dooper Convertible and you will be surprised how much crap you can get into it, all my shopping certainly goes in there but it's just a bit of a drag having to life it in through the boot lid rather than through an opening hatch.

Unless you are carryying golf clubs or a pushchair you will get used to it.

Thank you for your reply, sadly it is the dreaded push chair that's the issue.

as you quite rightly say a size of x amount of ltrs helps little when I need to know how wide, deep and long the boot is in mm to know if the push chair will fit.

Obviously the Golf boot is huge compared to a Clubman boot but we just don't know how big.

Thanks in anticipation

Here are the dimensions in inches courtesy of the NAM MINI forum in USA:
Trunk dimensions - North American Motoring

Quote:
With seats up in normal position (slightly leaned back) 17-1/2" front to back and 32 side to side

With seats down 43 to 47 depending on front seat location front to back and 32 side to side

With seats in secondary up position (straight up) 22-1/2 front to back and 32 side to side.

(Hi Bill....welcome to MINI2, we have met on the classic Mini forums and have exchanged emails on early Mini's!)

More sizes here including a pdf file with photos/dimensions in post #12:

I cant see the point in them giving the capacities in Cu ltrs, doesnt mean much as it could be 25mm high x 1/2 mile wide.

We have indeed, thank you.

Thanks for the dimensions from the US, I should be able to work that out from US imperial to MM.

Couldn't have put it better my self!

I have a push chair, 790 x 240 x 610 and want to know if A. it will fit and B. just how little boot will be left over. My wife is a teacher and does carry a lot of crap around she assures me are actually books and marking.

With the pram a semi permanent fixture will there be any boot left over?

Is there any specific area on here to ask about real world MPG out of a new Cooper D?

Guy in the show room said they get 55-59 out of the demo ones they take home against a 74 official figure. We get 47-49 out of the Bluemotion Tech Golf against an official 71.

Theres a lot of threads on here about MPG what it supposed to do and what it actually does, mainly they dont seem anywhere near each other, sounds "just like a golf" then

I average about 54mpg from my Dooper Convertible and that's enjoying the drive.

I drove to Gatwick the other day on dual carriageway/motorway and got 49mpg, but I was more concerned about getting there in time rather than as cheaply as I could.

On a regular run on A roads not going much about 60mph I do get about 64mpg.

Thank you both,

I've just been reading some old treads on mpg, if we can get mid 50's out of it which is looking likely with some miles on the engine, that will be 6-7 more than we get out of the Golf so that will be welcome. My wife does have an economic right foot, I do not however

I have a psa engined Yaris D4D for work and 100 miles a day around town that returns 63-64 all through out the year. There's progress for you!

Bill,
Just chopped a MkV Golf 1.9 TDI in for a 2009 Clubman Cooper D
Getting on average 15 to 20 MPG better across the range.
That's just opinion using the average MPG displays on both.
What that doesn't say is how much more enjoyable the drive is! Purely subjective I know. The downside of that is I drive it more and spend more on diesel
20 a year VEL is a bit better than my old Golf too.
If you want I can run my tape measure over the boot in Millimetres?

Regards

Alan

Bill,

Sorry it took a few days to reply, been on nightshift

my car has the flat load floor I'm not sure if it's standard?

Basic dimensions in mm
W930 x D 520 x H 390 to load cover 630 to lowest part of roof.

There are a couple of bumps near the seat back which narrow the boot to 810 that starts 200 above the floor.

And lastly with the drivers seat in my normal position and I'm 6' 1300 from seat back to back door with the rear seats folded.

Hope that all helps.

Alan

Thank you Alan

Yes it does help, I think from looking in a boot a few weeks ago removing the floor (again no idea if it's standard or not) would liberate another 150mm or so I guess? So all it 750mm high to roof?

Thanks very much.

Bill
