Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the MINI MINI-Coupe and the Toyota Prius c in the front seats.

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 Toyota Prius c, 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). The MINI MINI-Coupe is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius c. 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 Toyota Prius c have similar Destination Charges.

The MINI MINI-Coupe is about the same width as the Toyota Prius c. 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 Toyota Prius c.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the MINI MINI-Coupe does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius c.
