Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the MINI MINI-Convertible with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Convertible, the BMW M4 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M4 as you will with the MINI MINI-Convertible, 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 M4 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 M4 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M4 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 M4, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Handling
The BMW M4 has a significantly larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Convertible, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M4 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 M4 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 M4 and the MINI MINI-Convertible. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW M4 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Warranty
The BMW M4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Convertible.
