2016 MINI MINI-Countryman vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota RAV4 than in the MINI MINI-Countryman, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota RAV4 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
With the Toyota RAV4, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Countryman, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the MINI MINI-Countryman will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Countryman is much slimmer than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the MINI MINI-Countryman and the Toyota RAV4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Countryman has a larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the MINI MINI-Countryman and the Toyota RAV4.

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 Toyota RAV4. The MINI MINI-Countryman has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Countryman than that of the Toyota RAV4.
