Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic Si than the MINI Hardtop. The MINI Hardtop will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Si.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic Si as you will with the MINI Hardtop, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic Si will have less of an impact on your bank account than the MINI Hardtop. 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 Honda Civic Si is much higher than that for the MINI Hardtop.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic Si is somewhat more powerful than the MINI Hardtop.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic Si doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI Hardtop.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic Si is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI Hardtop.
