Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Challenger and the MINI MINI-Hardtop in the front seats.

Convenience
The Dodge Challenger will require fewer stops at the gas station than the MINI 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 Dodge Challenger will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the MINI 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 Dodge Challenger is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Challenger has a much more powerful engine than the MINI 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 Dodge Challenger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Utility
The Dodge Challenger offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Challenger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Hardtop.
