2017 MINI MINI-Countryman vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Tiguan than in the MINI MINI-Countryman, due to its greater head- and legroom. The MINI MINI-Countryman offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The MINI MINI-Countryman requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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). 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. In this case, the MINI MINI-Countryman will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
The MINI MINI-Countryman is about the same width as the Volkswagen Tiguan. 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

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 the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Countryman is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
