2014 MINI MINI-Clubman vs. 2014 Scion xB Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Scion xB than the MINI MINI-Clubman, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the MINI MINI-Clubman and the Scion xB in the front seats.

Convenience
The MINI MINI-Clubman will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion xB, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The MINI MINI-Clubman will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Scion xB, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The MINI MINI-Clubman and the Scion xB have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Clubman is much slimmer than the Scion xB, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the MINI MINI-Clubman, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Scion xB.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the MINI MINI-Clubman transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Scion xB.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Clubman has a larger turning radius than the Scion xB, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Clubman is somewhat more powerful than the Scion xB.

Utility
The MINI MINI-Clubman has less seating than the Scion xB, making the Scion xB the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Clubman than that of the Scion xB.
