2017 Volkswagen Tiguan vs. 2017 MINI MINI-Countryman Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Volkswagen Tiguan than the MINI MINI-Countryman. The MINI MINI-Countryman will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
With the MINI MINI-Countryman, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Tiguan, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Volkswagen Tiguan is somewhat more expensive than the MINI MINI-Countryman. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Volkswagen Tiguan and the MINI MINI-Countryman have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volkswagen Tiguan is about the same width as the MINI MINI-Countryman. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Volkswagen Tiguan, which is slightly longer than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Volkswagen Tiguan transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Handling
The Volkswagen Tiguan has a larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Countryman, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen Tiguan greatly out-muscles the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Tiguan and the MINI MINI-Countryman. The Volkswagen Tiguan has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen Tiguan is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Countryman.
