2016 MINI MINI-Hardtop vs. 2015 Volkswagen GTI Review

Comparison Review

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-Hardtop will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen GTI. 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 Volkswagen GTI have similar Destination Charges.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the MINI MINI-Hardtop more than the Volkswagen GTI, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

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