Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 230 than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The BMW 230 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 BMW 230 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). The BMW 230 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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 BMW 230 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 230 is much wider than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 230, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 230 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Handling
The BMW 230 has about the same turning radius as the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 230 is somewhat more powerful than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 230 and the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The BMW 230 has significantly less cargo room than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW 230 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
