2014 MINI MINI-Roadster vs. 2014 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the MINI MINI-Roadster and the Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z, 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 Nissan 370Z. 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 and the Nissan 370Z have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Roadster is much slimmer than the Nissan 370Z, 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 Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
The MINI MINI-Roadster has much less torque than the Nissan 370Z, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The MINI MINI-Roadster has a larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Roadster is significantly less powerful than the Nissan 370Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the MINI MINI-Roadster and the Nissan 370Z. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the MINI MINI-Roadster will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Roadster than that of the Nissan 370Z.
