Who would have asked a silly question like that in the 1960s or ’70s? But that was then, this is now.
On my trip this morning to the local Sainsbury’s I spotted the square-jawed ’90s Volvo first but then, with some amusement, noted it was stood alongside the current Mini Clubman.
So, which is bigger?
Dimensions Length Width Height Luggage capacity
Volvo 440 4312mm – 169.8″ 1686mm – 66.4″ 1390mm – 54.7″ 379lit. – 13.4ft3
Mini Clubman 4253mm – 167.4″ 1800mm – 70.9″ 1390mm – 54.7″ 360lit. – 12.7ft3
The Mini is wider by quite a margin, but the Volvo a tad longer and has more luggage space. Shall we call it a draw?
