2015 MINI MINI-Coupe vs. 2015 Toyota Prius Plug-in Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Coupe, drivers may find the Toyota Prius Plug-in 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). When looking only at MSRP, the MINI MINI-Coupe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Prius Plug-in. 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 Plug-in have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Coupe is much slimmer than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, 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 Toyota Prius Plug-in.

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 Plug-in.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Coupe has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, making it slightly more difficult to 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 Toyota Prius Plug-in. 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 Toyota Prius Plug-in.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Coupe than that of the Toyota Prius Plug-in.
