Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the MINI Clubman than in the Volvo V90 Cross Country, due to the MINI Clubman's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo V90 Cross Country, the MINI Clubman may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Volvo V90 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 V90 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 V90 Cross Country.

Dimensions
Since the MINI Clubman is much slimmer than the Volvo V90 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 V90 Cross Country.

Handling
The MINI Clubman has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo V90 Cross Country, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI Clubman is significantly less powerful than the Volvo V90 Cross Country. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The MINI Clubman has much less torque than the Volvo V90 Cross Country, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the MINI Clubman and the Volvo V90 Cross Country. The MINI Clubman has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo V90 Cross Country, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The MINI Clubman comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo V90 Cross Country.
