2016 MINI MINI-Clubman vs. 2016 Volvo XC70 Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the MINI MINI-Clubman than in the Volvo XC70, due to the MINI MINI-Clubman's smaller rear head- and legroom. The MINI MINI-Clubman will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC70.

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.

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.
