2017 MINI MINI-Countryman vs. 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The MINI MINI-Countryman offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Tiguan. The MINI MINI-Countryman will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the MINI MINI-Countryman, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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 Volkswagen Tiguan. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the MINI MINI-Countryman and the Volkswagen Tiguan have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The MINI MINI-Countryman is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. The MINI MINI-Countryman is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Countryman has a lot less horsepower than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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 Volkswagen Tiguan. The MINI MINI-Countryman has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Tiguan, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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