2013 BMW 128 vs. 2014 MINI MINI-Roadster Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 128, drivers may find the MINI MINI-Roadster a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The MINI MINI-Roadster requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 128, 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 BMW 128 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 BMW 128 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 128 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 BMW 128, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 128 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Handling
The BMW 128 has about the same turning radius as the MINI MINI-Roadster, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 128 is somewhat more powerful than the MINI MINI-Roadster.

Utility
The BMW 128 offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Roadster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 128 has less cargo capacity than the MINI MINI-Roadster, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW 128 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Roadster.
