As a leading Honda dealer in the Frankfort, IL area, we’ve seen a ton of interest in this attractive and nimble little 2-door. With its wide range of standard features and exceptional hybrid powertrain, there are few competitors that can match up to the winning combination of outstanding fuel economy, excellent versatility, and nimble driving dynamics of the CR-Z. Let’s take a look at how it compares to the 2013 MINI Cooper.

The 2013 Honda CR-Z features a hybrid powertrain with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor, delivering 130 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque; when equipped with a continuously variable transmission, it comes with paddle shifters. The 2013 MINI Cooper, meanwhile, provides a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine with an output of 121 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque.

Fuel economy for the 2013 CR-Z with Continuously Variable Transmission is estimated 36 mpg city and 39 mpg highway,* while the MINI answers with 29 mpg city/37 mpg highway.


A full slate of comfort and convenience features are standard equipment with the new Honda hatchback, including full power accessories, Bluetooth, iPod input, keyless entry, and a 6-speaker sound system. You also get a number of features that the MINI Cooper doesn’t provide, such as automatic climate control and a rearview camera. In addition, the spacious interior of the CR-Z provides a cargo capacity of 25.1 cubic feet, to the 5.7 cubic feet of the MINI.
