Small Car Supremacy: Ford Fiesta Vs Mini Cooper


Small cars in the US are no longer crap on four wheels.

It wasn’t all that long ago that automakers didn’t put a whole of effort into selling small cars to the US market. Americans typically wanted larger cars, trucks, and SUVs. That’s where the money was. Today, however, is a different story. Increasing fuel prices and a greater environmental awareness are causing many to downsize. Automakers have taken notice and overall small car quality and refinement is now very high. And two of the best examples include the Ford Fiesta and Mini Cooper.

Perhaps it’s the latter that sets the benchmark, but whatever the case, both cars are now hot sellers. However, they have many differences. For starters, the Mini is only a three-door hatchback while the Fiesta (the US version) is only sold as a five-door hatch or four-door sedan. The Mini also has more of a premium feel throughout, but that’s translated over to the price tag. The Fiesta is cheaper and offers enough features to satisfy most. But still, both cars do appeal to similar customers So which of these two is the better all-around small car? We’re sure everyone will have an opinion.
