2016 MINI MINI-Convertible vs. 2016 BMW 428 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The MINI MINI-Convertible offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 428 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Convertible, drivers may find the BMW 428 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the BMW 428 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Convertible, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 MINI MINI-Convertible is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 428. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The MINI MINI-Convertible carries a much lower Destination Charge than the BMW 428.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Convertible is much slimmer than the BMW 428, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the MINI MINI-Convertible, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 428.

Drivetrain
The MINI MINI-Convertible has much less torque than the BMW 428, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Convertible has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 428, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Convertible is significantly less powerful than the BMW 428. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the MINI MINI-Convertible and the BMW 428. The MINI MINI-Convertible has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 428, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The MINI MINI-Convertible comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 428.
