Practicality: One of the first things new MINI buyers always say is, “this car is bigger than it looks”. That statement is in fact true for both the MINI Cooper Hardtop and the VW Golf. Both cars are extremely practical and can easily accommodate your everyday needs without compromising practicality. Be honest with yourself, when was the last time you actually needed all that space in your SUV? The MINI gives you all the space you need but with better fuel economy, maneuverability, and looks. The VW Golf has similar numbers to the MINI Cooper Hardtop, but in its most basic trim level (which we are comparing), the Golf lacks a lot of the standard features. The MINI on the other hand is elegantly British (even in the most basic trim), with aircraft style toggle switches, quality materials, and state of the art technology. The MINI Hardtop provides you the luxury that the VW Golf simply cannot deliver. Performance: The MINI is a performer. Even with its smallest engine option (1.5 3-cylinder), the MINI Cooper Hardtop will happily slap around the VW Golf. It can get from 0-60 in just 7.3 seconds and can carry enormous speed into the conners due to its “wheels in the connors” design. The VW Golf on the other hand lacks the playful feel of the MINI. It reaches 60 MPH in 7.6 seconds and the handling is not nearly as fun. If you actually want to have fun in a Golf, you’ll need to opt for their GTI trim, which will set you back $27,595. If that isn’t an upsell, I don’t know what is! Enjoy the drive, and go with the MINI Hardtop.
