2014 Nissan Cube vs. 2015 MINI MINI-Hardtop Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Cube than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The Nissan Cube will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Cube as you will with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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 Nissan Cube is clearly a better financial choice over the MINI MINI-Hardtop. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan Cube and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Nissan Cube is a little narrower than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Nissan Cube takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

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

Performance
The Nissan Cube has less horsepower than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan Cube is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
