2024 Mini Convertible Comfort Layout and Options Comparison


When it comes to seating, the Mini offers itself as a more spacious and versatile option with the ability to seat up to four. The MX-5 can seat only two, making it a less ideal choice for anyone with a family. However, both options offer comfortable seating with lots of added features.


The Mini uses a three-cylinder, 12-valve, twin-power turbo engine with an overall better output. The engine has better fuel economy and higher torque, though it loses substantially to the Mazda’s Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre DOHC 16-valve Four-Cylinder engine, which has more horsepower.
