Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The MINI MINI-Countryman requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Cherokee, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Jeep Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Cherokee 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 Jeep Cherokee, 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 Jeep Cherokee transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the MINI MINI-Countryman. The Jeep Cherokee has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Countryman.
