2014 MINI MINI-Clubman vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen than the MINI MINI-Clubman, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, the MINI MINI-Clubman may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI MINI-Clubman as you will with the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the MINI MINI-Clubman or the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Clubman is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, 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 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the MINI MINI-Clubman and the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 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 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, 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 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

Utility
The MINI MINI-Clubman has less seating than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, making the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The MINI MINI-Clubman has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, 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 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.
