Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the MINI Clubman. The MINI Clubman will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI Clubman, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the MINI Clubman, 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 Destination Charge for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much higher than that for the MINI Clubman.

Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much wider than the MINI Clubman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI Clubman.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the MINI Clubman, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the MINI Clubman. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the MINI Clubman.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the MINI Clubman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI Clubman.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI Clubman.
