2018 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the MINI MINI-Countryman and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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). The MINI MINI-Countryman is somewhat more expensive 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
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 the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Tiguan, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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