Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Countryman.

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

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe and the MINI MINI-Countryman. With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the MINI MINI-Countryman.
