2019 MINI MINI-Hardtop vs. 2018 Ford Fiesta Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the MINI MINI-Hardtop than in the Ford Fiesta, due to the MINI MINI-Hardtop's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the MINI MINI-Hardtop and the Ford Fiesta in the front seats.

With the Ford Fiesta you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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-Hardtop will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Fiesta, which has a much lower MSRP. 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-Hardtop and the Ford Fiesta have similar Destination Charges.

The MINI MINI-Hardtop is about the same width as the Ford Fiesta. If you go with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Fiesta.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the MINI MINI-Hardtop does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Fiesta.

The MINI MINI-Hardtop has a larger turning radius than the Ford Fiesta, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Hardtop than that of the Ford Fiesta.
