2016 MINI MINI-Countryman vs. 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the MINI MINI-Countryman, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Countryman, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Hyundai Santa Fe 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). Clearly, the MINI MINI-Countryman is a better financial choice over the Hyundai Santa Fe, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the MINI MINI-Countryman will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

Drivetrain
The MINI MINI-Countryman has much lower torque than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Countryman has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Countryman has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Utility
The MINI MINI-Countryman has less seating than the Hyundai Santa Fe, making the Hyundai Santa Fe the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The MINI MINI-Countryman has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Countryman is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
