MINI Clubman: Brown is hot

Colour of the moment

I can't currently move for brown (or Hot Chocolate, to be precise) MINIs.

They are everywhere. Or at least they appear to be. I've yet to see a Hot Chocolate MINI Clubman actually on the road, but I've spotted them on TV adverts, billboard campaigns, MINI's website and even at this year's motorshow. It seems to be the colour of the moment.

As I said in my first report in May, the colour is very distinctive and a real change to the silvers, reds and blues that you see on the road. It's not a colour that you'd normally initially consider, but on the Clubman it does seem to work and really highlights the MINI's retro features.

What do you think? Would you pick brown if you were buying a MINI? Let me know.
