Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A5 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the MINI MINI-Convertible with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The MINI MINI-Convertible will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A5.

Convenience
With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Convertible, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Audi A5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the MINI MINI-Convertible, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Audi A5 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Convertible.
