Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the MINI MINI-Countryman, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X1 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Countryman, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the MINI MINI-Countryman, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 X1 is somewhat more expensive than the MINI MINI-Countryman. 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 X1 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Dimensions
The BMW X1 is about the same width as the MINI MINI-Countryman. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X1, which is slightly longer than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X1 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Handling
The BMW X1 has the same turning radius as the MINI MINI-Countryman, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little more horsepower than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the MINI MINI-Countryman. The BMW X1 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Warranty
The BMW X1 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Countryman.
