Mini Cooper vs Audi A3 (years 2009 - 2011)

Asked by Apr 01, 2016 at 02:32 PM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I am an expat living in Argentina.  I am looking to buy either a Mini Cooper
or Audi A3, 2009 - 2011, around 70,000 miles.  I work from my residence,
so it will be mostly a weekend car.  The prices of the two are comparable
here.  I lean toward the Mini as far as style and interior.  
  However, l would appreciate an opinion as to which would be more
reliable and less costly to maintain

Mini Cooper is half the car of an a3. Mini also prone to strange electrical issues. On my biased opinion mini is a ticking time bomb of a ycar. Not to mention it's jot nearly as safe as an a3.
