2015 FIAT 500c vs. 2015 MINI MINI-Convertible Review

Comparison Review

The FIAT 500c offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the MINI MINI-Convertible with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the FIAT 500c and the MINI MINI-Convertible in the front seats.

The MINI MINI-Convertible requires fewer visits to the gas station than the FIAT 500c, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the FIAT 500c is clearly a better financial choice over the MINI MINI-Convertible. 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 FIAT 500c is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Since the FIAT 500c is much slimmer than the MINI MINI-Convertible, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500c, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the MINI MINI-Convertible.

The FIAT 500c has much less torque than the MINI MINI-Convertible, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The FIAT 500c has a significantly smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Convertible, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500c is significantly less powerful than the MINI MINI-Convertible. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500c and the MINI MINI-Convertible. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the FIAT 500c as you will in the MINI MINI-Convertible.

The FIAT 500c comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Convertible.
