2018 Mazda Mazda3 vs. 2018 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 Mazda Mazda3 than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda3, drivers may find the MINI MINI-Hardtop a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Mazda Mazda3 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 Mazda Mazda3 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 Mazda Mazda3 and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda Mazda3 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 Mazda Mazda3, 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 Mazda Mazda3 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Handling
The Mazda Mazda3 has about the same turning radius as the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Mazda Mazda3 and the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Utility
The Mazda Mazda3 offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mazda Mazda3 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mazda Mazda3 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
