2016 Honda CR-Z vs 2016 Mini Cooper
It’s difficult to find precise segment rivals for the Honda CR-Z, as it’s pretty much the only sport hybrid coupe model on the market. We still like to see how it measures up against similar vehicles, so we’ve stretched its class a bit and decided to see pit it against a popular subcompact hatchback that has become somewhat iconic across the globe by comparing the 2016 Honda CR-Z vs 2016 Mini Cooper Hatch.
While this precise version of the Mini Cooper was introduced in 2000, the vehicle’s heritage stretches back much further, giving it a bit of an “experience” advantage over the 2010-introduced Honda CR-Z. As always, we’ll let the comparison come down to a look at some of its specifications.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda CR-Z
The Honda CR-Z fits into a difficult mold as Honda tried to find the perfect balance between efficiency and sportiness. It has a hybrid drivetrain, allowing it to operate electrically or by utilizing gasoline. Inherently, that makes it a pretty efficient vehicle, but not quite as efficient as one might assume due to its performance features. In terms of city fuel efficiency, the CR-Z only has a 0.5 l/100km advantage over the Mini Cooper due to the Mini’s small size.
Unfortunately, the Mini Hatch does deliver more power than the CR-Z in the way of an extra 4 horsepower and 35 pound-feet of torque. That’s not a huge advantage, so we think that the efficiency and power kind of balance each other out between the two vehicles. Where the CR-Z has a true advantage is in terms of space, as it delivers an extra 16.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity which is pretty substantial.
