I bet you any money that you didn’t expect such a comparison today featured on the blog, but our friends over at InsideLine have done it again. They decided to take the BMW 128i Convertible and the MINI Cooper S Cabrio at the track and see how they stack against each other. Almost a year ago, we have performed our own comparison, but at the time, we chose the 135i Coupe and the Cooper S.

We do agree that this comparison is a bit unusual, but sometimes that’s what we need, comparing two cars from different categories can be fun. And Edmunds took this comparison to another level, putting the two vehicles through some intensive tests, straigtlines, cornering, you name it…..who came up on top?

Well, let’s watch the video!

    I don’t get it. Can two cars get any more different? The BMW is more than 50% heavier, has 50% more cylinders and is 50% more expensive than the mini. Why would you want to compare these? It’s like comparing apples and kippers.
