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

Comparison Review

Comfort
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.

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-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.

Dimensions
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. If you go with the MINI MINI-Coupe, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the MINI MINI-Coupe transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Coupe has a much more powerful engine than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the MINI MINI-Coupe seats a lot fewer people than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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.

Warranty
The MINI MINI-Coupe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
