2014 MINI MINI-Countryman vs. 2014 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 Volkswagen Tiguan requires fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI MINI-Countryman, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan, 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. 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 a little narrower than the Volkswagen Tiguan, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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
With its lower torque engine, the MINI MINI-Countryman doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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
The MINI MINI-Countryman has a little 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 significantly less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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.
