2014 MINI MINI-Countryman vs. 2014 Nissan Xterra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Xterra than in the MINI MINI-Countryman, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Xterra will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI MINI-Countryman as you will with the Nissan Xterra, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The MINI MINI-Countryman is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Xterra. 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 Nissan Xterra.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Countryman is much slimmer than the Nissan Xterra, 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 Nissan Xterra.

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

Handling
The MINI MINI-Countryman has the same turning radius as the Nissan Xterra, 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 Nissan Xterra.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the MINI MINI-Countryman and the Nissan Xterra. The MINI MINI-Countryman has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Xterra.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Countryman than that of the Nissan Xterra.
