2014 Honda Insight vs. 2015 MINI MINI-Hardtop Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Insight offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the MINI MINI-Hardtop with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Insight 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Insight 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. In this case, the Honda Insight will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Dimensions
The Honda Insight is a little narrower than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Honda Insight, 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 Insight has much less torque than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Insight 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 Honda Insight 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Insight and the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The Honda Insight 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 Insight is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
