Best Wagons To Lease: Mini Clubman Vs. Mercedes-Benz E-450

The diminutive 2023 Mini Clubman has triumphed in grand style over its competitors, despite the fact that it may not be as useful as other station wagons.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Mini Clubman delivers a tough ride. The question now is, what does the Mercedes-Benz E-450 have that the Clubman does not? Let’s find out.

Engine and Performance

An all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 189 horsepower powers all 2023 Mini Cooper S Clubman variants. This engine is coupled by Mini to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with an all-wheel drive option.

Three different engines are paired with an obedient nine-speed automatic transmission in every Mercedes-Benz E-class. A four-cylinder turbocharged engine in the E450 produces 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Either rear- or all-wheel drive can be paired with it.

An inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine with a 48-volt hybrid technology that serves as an electric supercharger powers the E450 models.

Fuel Economy

The EPA estimates that the Mini Cooper S Clubman manages 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Models with all-wheel drive have somewhat worse fuel efficiency, averaging 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. In our experience driving a S Clubman, we recorded 27 mpg. There isn’t currently a Mercedes-Benz fuel efficiency evaluation available.


The Mini Clubman has an interior with a build quality and attractive styling. The center stack’s display is placed in a circular enclosure that resembles the car’s cheery spherical headlights.

The cabin looks quirky and lively, and the materials are top class. Despite the car’s compact size, both rows of seats have adequate space for people.

A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, heated front seats, and memory settings for the driver’s and front passenger’s seats are all included on every Mercedes-Benz model.

A head-up display, massaging front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and ventilated front seat cushions are desirable extras. Despite having a smaller trunk than some of its competitors, the Mercedes excels them when it involves interior storage.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Mini Clubman comes standard with an auxiliary input connection, streaming audio, and a six-speaker AM/FM audio system. Moreover, Bluetooth connectivity is available on all models, allowing you to make and receive calls while keeping both hands on the wheel.

Mercedes claims that the upgraded infotainment system in the new E-class offers more connectivity, quicker response times, and support for 5G technology.

The selfie and video cameras installed atop the dashboard are another new, unique feature that enables drivers to take part in Zooms or other video conferences.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
