I'm buying a Clubman and wondered if the 3 cylinder is sufficient for every day use. My main concern is if the car is loaded with passengers and their gear, is the 3 cylinder going to be enough.

What's your take?

Stick with the 3 cylinder or upgrade to the S? Will the 3 cylinder get the job done when climbing hills with passengers?

If you're regularly carrying loads and travelling up hills and alot of miles, I would say maybe consider diesel engines or if you want sportier drive "SD" variant.

The standard 4 cylinder engines or if you want sportier drive "S" or "JCW" variant if you don't travel many miles

I would maybe consider the 3 cylinder engine if only driving around city centre.

The less stress you're putting on the engine the better i.e models with forced inductions.

Or maybe consider cars with cylinder deactivation.
