2016 Hyundai Elantra GT vs. 2017 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 GT than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Elantra GT and the MINI MINI-Hardtop in the front seats.

Convenience
The Hyundai Elantra GT will require fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra GT is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Hyundai Elantra GT and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra GT 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 GT, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Elantra GT has less horsepower than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Hyundai Elantra GT offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Elantra GT will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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