Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the MINI MINI-Convertible than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the MINI MINI-Convertible in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Convertible, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the MINI MINI-Convertible, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Convertible.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Convertible, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a much more powerful engine than the MINI MINI-Convertible. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the MINI MINI-Convertible. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Convertible.
