Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the MINI Clubman than in the Volvo V60 Cross Country, due to the MINI Clubman's smaller rear head- and legroom. The MINI Clubman will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo V60 Cross Country.

Convenience
The Volvo V60 Cross Country requires fewer visits to the gas station than the MINI Clubman, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Clubman is clearly a better financial choice over the Volvo V60 Cross Country. 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 Clubman carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo V60 Cross Country.

Dimensions
Since the MINI Clubman is much slimmer than the Volvo V60 Cross Country, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the MINI Clubman, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volvo V60 Cross Country.

Handling
The MINI Clubman has about the same turning radius as the Volvo V60 Cross Country, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI Clubman is significantly less powerful than the Volvo V60 Cross Country. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the MINI Clubman doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo V60 Cross Country.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the MINI Clubman and the Volvo V60 Cross Country. The MINI Clubman has less cargo capacity than the Volvo V60 Cross Country, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The MINI Clubman comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo V60 Cross Country.
