Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the MINI Countryman. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the MINI Countryman.

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

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

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a larger turning radius than the MINI Countryman, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and the MINI Countryman.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Tucson doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Tucson and the MINI Countryman. With the Hyundai Tucson, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI Countryman.
