2014 MINI MINI-Clubman vs. 2015 Volvo XC70 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC70 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 Volvo XC70 in the front seats.

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 Volvo XC70, 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). Based on MSRP, the MINI MINI-Clubman is clearly a better financial choice over the Volvo XC70. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo XC70.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Clubman is much slimmer than the Volvo XC70, 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 Volvo XC70.

Drivetrain
The MINI MINI-Clubman has much less torque than the Volvo XC70, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Clubman has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo XC70, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Clubman is significantly less powerful than the Volvo XC70. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The MINI MINI-Clubman has less seating than the Volvo XC70, making the Volvo XC70 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The MINI MINI-Clubman has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo XC70, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The MINI MINI-Clubman comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC70.
