2014 MINI MINI-Coupe vs. 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Subaru Impreza WRX will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Coupe.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI MINI-Coupe as you will with the Subaru Impreza WRX, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Impreza WRX. 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 Impreza WRX have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
The MINI MINI-Coupe has much less torque than the Subaru Impreza WRX, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Coupe is significantly less powerful than the Subaru Impreza WRX. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower 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 Subaru Impreza WRX. The MINI MINI-Coupe has significantly less cargo room than the Subaru Impreza WRX, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
