2013 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 vs. 2014 MINI MINI-Coupe Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 and the MINI MINI-Coupe in the front seats.

Convenience
The MINI MINI-Coupe requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mazda MAZDASPEED3, 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 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the MINI MINI-Coupe. 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 MAZDASPEED3 and the MINI MINI-Coupe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 is much wider than the MINI MINI-Coupe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mazda MAZDASPEED3, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Coupe.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Coupe.

Handling
The Mazda MAZDASPEED3 has a larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Coupe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 has a much more powerful engine than the MINI MINI-Coupe. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 more than the MINI MINI-Coupe, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Coupe.

The basic warranty of the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Coupe.
