2015 Toyota Yaris 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 Toyota Yaris than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The MINI MINI-Hardtop will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Yaris.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Yaris 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 Toyota Yaris 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 Toyota Yaris and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Toyota Yaris 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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Yaris, which is slightly longer than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

Handling
The Toyota Yaris has a significantly smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Toyota Yaris offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

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