Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 430 than in the MINI Convertible, due to the BMW 430's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 430 and the MINI Convertible in the front seats.

With the BMW 430 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI Convertible, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 430 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the 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 BMW 430 is much higher than that for the MINI Convertible.

Since the BMW 430 is much wider than the MINI Convertible, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 430, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI Convertible.

The BMW 430 has a larger turning radius than the MINI Convertible, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 has a much more powerful engine than the MINI Convertible. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 430 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the MINI Convertible.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 430 and the MINI Convertible.

The BMW 430 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI Convertible.
