2016 Honda CR-Z vs. 2017 MINI MINI-Hardtop Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The MINI MINI-Hardtop will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-Z.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-Z 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 Honda CR-Z 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 Honda CR-Z and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-Z is about the same width as the MINI MINI-Hardtop. If you go with the Honda CR-Z, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Drivetrain
The Honda CR-Z has much less torque than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda CR-Z has a smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-Z is significantly less powerful than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Honda CR-Z has less seating than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making the MINI MINI-Hardtop the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Honda CR-Z has significantly less cargo room than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda CR-Z is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
