2016 Ford Focus ST vs. 2016 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 Ford Focus ST than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Focus ST and the MINI MINI-Hardtop in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Focus ST 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). Whether you pick the Ford Focus ST 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 Focus ST and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Ford Focus ST 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 ST, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Focus ST transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Handling
The Ford Focus ST has a larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
