2014 Ford Focus vs. 2015 MINI MINI-Hardtop Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Focus offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Focus, drivers may find the MINI MINI-Hardtop a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Focus as you will with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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 Ford Focus will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Ford Focus and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Focus doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Handling
The Ford Focus has about the same turning radius as the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus is somewhat more powerful than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The Ford Focus has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Focus is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
