Performance Capabilities

The FIAT 500 is equipped with a standard 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo 4-cylinder engine that produces 135 horsepower. However, the Abarth Hatchback trim can produce up to 160 horsepower.

On the other hand, the base MINI Cooper Clubman is equipped with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that produces 189 horsepower. There’s also the option of a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder Valvetronic motor that produces 301 horsepower. Either way, you’re getting a more powerful engine than the FIAT 500.

How do these pint-sized speedsters compare in terms of power? Aside from the improved horsepower provided by the MINI Cooper Clubman, the FIAT 500 doesn’t offer quite enough power to manage steep inclines as easily as its MINI Cooper competitor. Without the added potency of the Clubman, the engine revs may feel slightly lackluster when driving the FIAT 500.

MINI Cooper Clubman vs FIAT 500 Design

While the 500 could be described as charming, its white-button headlamps, sloping lines, and mustache trim bar don’t quite compare to the sleek, modern lines of the 2020 MINI Cooper Clubman.

When you step inside of the FIAT 500, the small wheelbase and low roofline deliver a less spacious feel than what you’ll experience inside its MINI counterpart.

In addition, the Clubman offers its signature retro feel as well as a host of optional upholsteries and eye-catching features, such as the available Chesterfield Leather with diamond-shaped stitching and the available LED MINI Cooper logo projections.

As for the interior, the MINI Cooper Clubman serves up a 6.5-inch instrument cluster, which features an intuitive layout for added convenience. There’s also plenty of head- and legroom, cargo space, and an airy cabin with split rear doors for easy loading.

Advanced Safety Features

Safety should always be a priority—that’s why the MINI Cooper Clubman puts you and your loved ones first by equipping the cabin with eight standard airbags.

On top of that, you can take safety to the next level by arming your MINI Cooper Clubman with available driver-assistive systems, such as:

  • Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front & Rear Park Distance Control
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Parking Assistant

Alternatively, the FIAT 500 doesn’t offer advanced safety features that are similar to the MINI Cooper Clubman. Due to this, the time you spend behind the wheel of the FIAT 500 may feel a little less secure.

MINI Cooper Clubman vs FIAT 500: The Verdict

As you can see, the FIAT 500 falls far short of the performance, safety, space, and style of the Clubman. Drivers in Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx, New York, can explore the 2020 MINI Cooper Clubman and all its features by visiting MINI of Manhattan. Contact us today to schedule a test drive!
