2014 MINI MINI-Clubman vs. 2015 Subaru Outback Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Outback than the MINI MINI-Clubman, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Outback will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Clubman.

Convenience
With the Subaru Outback you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Clubman, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the MINI MINI-Clubman will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Outback. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the MINI MINI-Clubman will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Subaru Outback.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Clubman is much slimmer than the Subaru Outback, 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 Subaru Outback.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the MINI MINI-Clubman and the Subaru Outback do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Clubman has about the same turning radius as the Subaru Outback, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The MINI MINI-Clubman has less seating than the Subaru Outback, making the Subaru Outback the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The MINI MINI-Clubman has significantly less cargo room than the Subaru Outback, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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