More and more Indian Head drivers are switching to subcompact cars every day. Subcompact cars provide drivers with the freedom to do more with less.

But what kind of subcompact car will best suit Melville driver’s individual needs? We’ve compared the 2016 Jeep Renegade and the 2016 MINI Countryman side by side to give you a good overview of what you can expect from each vehicle.


In many performance elements, the 2016 Jeep Renegade outshines the 2016 MINI Countryman. The Renegade has a more powerful base engine that gets an aggressive 160 hp, while the Countryman’s base engine only delivers 121 hp. Another important performance perk that comes with the Renegade is the ability to take the vehicle on off-roading excursions. Since the Renegade is more technologically upgraded than the Countryman and comes with more safety enhancing features, taking the Renegade off-road is safe and effortless. Not to mention, the Renegade also has the ability to tow up to 907 kg while towing is not recommended for the Countryman.

Some of the innovative safety features available on the Renegade include rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, and backup camera. The combination of these safety features with the Renegade’s off-roading capabilities make it a much more versatile vehicle than the Countryman.


The 2016 Jeep Renegade also surpasses the 2016 MINI Countryman in the features department. The Countryman lacks the updated technology that is seen as standard on many of today’s popular vehicles, which makes it lag behind in the competition, especially when compared against a heavily outfitted vehicle like the Renegade. Just a few features that show the Jeep as better than the MINI include a Uconnect infotainment center, Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, overhead console storage, and remote fuel-door filler release. The Renegade also provides more passenger room in nearly every aspect including front and rear leg room, head room, and shoulder room.

Which One is Better?

The choice is pretty clear when it comes to choosing between the 2016 Jeep Renegade and the 2016 MINI Countryman, especially after comparing starting prices.

The Countryman has a base starting price of $29,950 while the Renegade’s base starting price comes in at only $21,495. So, with better performance, more features, and more space all at a lower price, you can’t go wrong with the Renegade.
