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 Fit than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, the Honda Fit 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 Honda Fit as you will with the MINI 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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Fit is clearly a better financial choice over the MINI 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 Fit is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Dimensions
The Honda Fit is a little narrower than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Honda Fit, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

Drivetrain
The Honda Fit has much less torque than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Fit has about the same turning radius as the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Fit is significantly less powerful than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Honda Fit offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Fit will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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