2017 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2016 MINI MINI-Countryman Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the MINI MINI-Countryman. The Chevrolet Equinox will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Equinox, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Countryman.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the MINI MINI-Countryman. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Equinox will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

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

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Equinox and the MINI MINI-Countryman are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Equinox and the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the MINI MINI-Countryman. With the Chevrolet Equinox, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Countryman.
