2014 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2014 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 Hyundai Elantra than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The Hyundai Elantra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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 Hyundai Elantra 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 Hyundai Elantra and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra 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 Hyundai Elantra, 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 Hyundai Elantra doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra 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 Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more powerful than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Utility
The Hyundai Elantra offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Hyundai Elantra has significantly less cargo room than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Elantra than that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
