Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 430 than in the MINI MINI-Convertible, due to the BMW 430's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Convertible, the BMW 430 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the BMW 430 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 BMW 430 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 BMW 430 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much wider than the MINI 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 MINI-Convertible.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 has a much more powerful engine than the MINI MINI-Convertible. 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 MINI-Convertible.

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

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