Let's take a peek at how the 2015 Honda CR-Z holds up against the MINI Cooper.
You'll save before you even walk through the doors of Regal Honda when you go with a 2015 Honda CR-Z over the MINI Cooper. With its starting MSRP of $20,145 vs. the MINI's starting MSRP of $20,700, you've kept almost 600 dollars in your pocket even before we tell you our low price! Plus, you'll get standard features in the 2015 Honda CR-Z such as -- well, a hybrid engine, for one -- side mirrors with integrated turn signals, paddle shifters with CVT transmission, a 6-speaker audio system and mesh sport seats -- none of which you'll get standard on the MINI Cooper -- though you'll pay more money for less!
The 2015 Honda CR-Z has the advantage from the get-go with its hybrid powertrain composed of a 15kW Lithium-ion battery, 1.5L I4 engine with a net hp of 130 and an electric motor which is mated to either a standard 6-speed manual -- the CR-Z is the first hybrid to offer a manual --or an optional CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters. By contrast, you'll find a 1.5L 3-cylinder turbo engine with 134 hp and a 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic transmission (paddle shifters an additional cost.) With all things considered and only 4 horses apart, the 2015 Honda CR-Z has the more efficient and versatile powertrain.
Because it's a hybrid, you'll do better with fuel efficiency in the 2015 Honda CR-Z, with the manual transmission garnering an estimated 31 city/38 highway mpg and the CVT automatic getting an impressive 36/39. The MINI Cooper gets 29/40 mpg with the manual but only 28/37 with automatic.
