2014 Kia Sportage vs. 2014 MINI MINI-Countryman Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sportage than in the MINI MINI-Countryman. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Sportage and the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Convenience
The Kia Sportage requires fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI MINI-Countryman, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Sportage will have less of an impact on your bank account than the MINI MINI-Countryman. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Kia Sportage is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sportage is much wider than the MINI MINI-Countryman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Kia Sportage, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Kia Sportage and the MINI MINI-Countryman are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Kia Sportage has a significantly smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Countryman, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Kia Sportage and the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Sportage and the MINI MINI-Countryman. With the Kia Sportage, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sportage than that of the MINI MINI-Countryman.
