2016 BMW 428 vs. 2016 MINI MINI-Convertible Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 428 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the MINI MINI-Convertible with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Convertible, the BMW 428 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 428 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI MINI-Convertible, 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 428 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the MINI MINI-Convertible, 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 428 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 428 is much wider than the MINI MINI-Convertible, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 428, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 428 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Handling
The BMW 428 has a larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Convertible, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 428 has a much more powerful engine than the MINI MINI-Convertible. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 428 and the MINI MINI-Convertible. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 428 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Warranty
The BMW 428 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Convertible.
