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 430 than the MINI Hardtop. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 430, drivers may find the MINI Hardtop a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The BMW 430 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI Hardtop, making it more convenient to drive.

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

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much wider than the MINI Hardtop, 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 Hardtop.

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

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

Powertrain
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 Hardtop.

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

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