2014 Audi A5 vs. 2014 MINI MINI-Roadster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A5 and the MINI MINI-Roadster in the front seats.

Convenience
The Audi A5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI MINI-Roadster, 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). The Audi A5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the MINI MINI-Roadster, 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 Audi A5 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much wider than the MINI MINI-Roadster, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi A5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A5 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Roadster, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 is somewhat more powerful than the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Roadster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi A5 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Roadster.
