2016 FIAT 500c vs. 2016 MINI MINI-Convertible Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the MINI MINI-Convertible than the FIAT 500c, due to its greater head- and legroom. The MINI MINI-Convertible will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500c.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500c as you will with the MINI MINI-Convertible, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 FIAT 500c will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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.

Dimensions
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.

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

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

Performance
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.

Utility
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. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500c will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Convertible.
