2018 MINI MINI-Countryman vs. 2018 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 MINI MINI-Countryman requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Santa Fe, 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. The MINI MINI-Countryman carries a much lower Destination Charge 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
With its lower torque engine, the MINI MINI-Countryman doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Countryman has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Santa Fe, so they both maneuver the same 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.
