2013 MINI Cooper S Versus VW Beetle GSR

Canadian website Driving compares the two vehicles and concludes:
In this instance, the Mini reigns supreme, thanks to how its small packaging lends to such a bewilderingly fun drive. But the only thing stopping the Mini Cooper S from fully winning over my heart was its price. Sure, was loaded with goodies like a panoramic sunroof, GPS navigation and various performance bits from the John Cooper Works package, but it topped out at $37,305. That’s some $8,300 more than what the base Cooper S costs and $3,600 more than the Beetle GSR. That’s not exactly cheap, considering you could get a whole host of other hot hatches for far less.
