Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the MINI Countryman than the Toyota Venza. The MINI Countryman offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI Countryman as you will with the Toyota Venza, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 MINI Countryman will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The MINI Countryman carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Venza.

The MINI Countryman is a little narrower than the Toyota Venza, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the MINI Countryman, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Venza.

The MINI Countryman has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Venza.

With somewhat higher torque, the MINI Countryman transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Venza.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the MINI Countryman and the Toyota Venza. The MINI Countryman has less cargo space than the Toyota Venza, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the MINI Countryman than that of the Toyota Venza.
