2014 MINI MINI-Roadster vs. 2015 Audi A5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the MINI MINI-Roadster and the Audi A5 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI MINI-Roadster as you will with the Audi A5, 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). Based on MSRP, the MINI MINI-Roadster is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A5. 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-Roadster carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Audi A5.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Roadster is much slimmer than the Audi A5, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the MINI MINI-Roadster, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Audi A5.

Drivetrain
The MINI MINI-Roadster has much less torque than the Audi A5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Roadster has a smaller turning radius than the Audi A5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The MINI MINI-Roadster has less horsepower than the Audi A5, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The MINI MINI-Roadster has less seating than the Audi A5, making the Audi A5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The MINI MINI-Roadster has significantly less cargo room than the Audi A5, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The MINI MINI-Roadster comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A5.
