2014 MINI MINI-Coupe vs. 2015 MINI MINI-Hardtop Review

Comparison Review

Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Coupe, drivers may find the MINI MINI-Hardtop a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

The MINI MINI-Coupe will require fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it more convenient to drive.

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-Coupe is somewhat more expensive than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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-Coupe will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Since the MINI MINI-Coupe is much slimmer than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The MINI MINI-Coupe is slightly shorter than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which may make it easier to park.

With its lower torque, the MINI MINI-Coupe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

The MINI MINI-Coupe has about the same turning radius as the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

The MINI MINI-Coupe has less horsepower than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

The MINI MINI-Coupe has less seating than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making the MINI MINI-Hardtop the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The MINI MINI-Coupe has significantly less cargo room than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
