Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford C-Max Hybrid than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The Ford C-Max Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Convenience
With the Ford C-Max Hybrid you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Ford C-Max Hybrid or the MINI MINI-Hardtop, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford C-Max Hybrid and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.
