The Fiat 500L Vs The Mini Cooper
Are you a family-oriented person who is looking for a new car to help you go through daily activities? If you are, then you’re most likely debating between buying the Fiat 500L and the Mini Cooper. While these are two very logical options, the Fiat 500L is ultimately the best choice. Find out why below!
The Fiat 500L Has Plenty of Space
The 500L has seriously stepped up its game compared to its predecessor: the Fiat 500. The 500L has four doors; meanwhile, the 500 only had two. This means that not only will your passengers be more comfortable, but they will have up to forty-two percent more room to move around in the back. This is extremely important because when you’re going on long car rides, the worst thing in the world is feeling cramped in among people, and feeling your arm start to go numb because it’s so squished against the door. In regard to cargo room, you’ll have about 23 cubic feet of room behind the rear seats. That means you’ll have the space to put all of your luggage, including a baby stroller should you need it! The Mini Cooper, on the other hand, only roughly 16.5 cubic feet of cargo room; therefore, you’re much better off going with the Fiat 500L.
The 500L is Very Affordable
Not only does it provide plenty of room, but the 500L is also much cheaper than the Mini Cooper. The Cooper has a starting price of twenty-seven thousand dollars; however, the 500L has a starting price of just under twenty-two thousand dollars. The best-equipped 500L, on the other hand, stands at around $29,500*. This price is incredibly strong in comparison to the best-equipped Cooper, which is almost thirty-two thousand dollars. Not only this, but with the more expensive Fiat 500L, you could have anything you could possibly wanted; therefore, why would you even consider going more expensive for the Mini Cooper?
The Fiat 500L is Suprisingly Powerful
The engine of the 500L also makes it superior to the Mini Cooper. With 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet torque, it seriously beats the Mini Cooper’s 121 horsepower and 114 pound-feet torque. It also has turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder gas engine, which is better than the Cooper’s 1.6-L engine.
The Fiat 500L also happens to accelerate faster than the Mini Cooper does, because it accelerates at a rate of 2.8 seconds faster than the Mini Cooper. At 9.3 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kilometres, you’ll be lucky to find a car that fares better than this one.
Let’s face it-you’re better off buying the Fiat 500L. With it, you’ll be saving an incredibly amount of room that you wouldn’t have access to in the Mini Cooper. Not only this, but any passengers you have will be much more comfortable and will feel less squished. This provides a more relaxed and peaceful experience for everyone who will be riding in the car. If you’re a person who seriously considers the price of a car before buying, then you should also consider that the most expensive Fiat 500L is almost the same price at the Mini Cooper’s least expensive car.
