2014 FIAT 500L vs. 2014 MINI MINI-Hardtop Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the FIAT 500L than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the FIAT 500L and the MINI MINI-Hardtop in the front seats.

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 FIAT 500L is somewhat more expensive than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The FIAT 500L will cost more in transportation costs than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
