2014 MINI MINI-Coupe vs. 2014 Subaru BRZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru BRZ, the MINI MINI-Coupe may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The MINI MINI-Coupe will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Subaru BRZ, 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-Coupe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru BRZ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The MINI MINI-Coupe and the Subaru BRZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Coupe is much slimmer than the Subaru BRZ, 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 Subaru BRZ.

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

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

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

Utility
The MINI MINI-Coupe has less seating than the Subaru BRZ, making the Subaru BRZ the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the MINI MINI-Coupe will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Subaru BRZ.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Coupe than that of the Subaru BRZ.
