Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Bronco Sport than in the MINI Countryman. The Ford Bronco Sport will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the MINI Countryman.

Convenience
The MINI Countryman requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Bronco Sport, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Bronco Sport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the 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 Ford Bronco Sport is much higher than that for the MINI Countryman.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Bronco Sport is much wider than the MINI Countryman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Bronco Sport takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the MINI Countryman.

Handling
The Ford Bronco Sport has the same turning radius as the MINI Countryman, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Bronco Sport has a little less horsepower than the MINI Countryman.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Bronco Sport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Bronco Sport and the MINI Countryman. With the Ford Bronco Sport, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI Countryman.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Bronco Sport is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI Countryman.
