Looking at the exterior differences between the 2016 Beetle and the 2016 MINI Cooper hardtop, it's easy to see why the Beetle is so iconic. The round top and overall shape of the 2016 Beetl harkens back to the original, but with a modern flair that makes it more contemporary and stylish. The MINI's more standard look can feel boxy, but does offer the same benefits of being a compact and affordable option. Under the hood of the Beetle, you'll find a 1.8-liter I-4 engine that produces 170 horsepower. When you compare that to the much less powerful 1.5-liter, 134 horsepower MINI Cooper, it's easy to see why so many people choose the Beetle.

When it comes to the interior, both vehicles have their own style. Despite the rounded exterior, the interior of the 2016 Beetle is more modern and traditional. A functional design gives you the tools you need to use the smaller space as efficiently as possible. Inside the MINI, on the other hand, you'll find a rounded center console and a unique overall design. The less traditional appearance makes the MINI Cooper stand out, but the layout of the Beetle makes it easier to see the dashboard and other important interior features.
