The 2018 MINI Hardtop 4-Door and the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI are two of the most popular hatchbacks on the market, and for good reason: they offer a level of comfort and quality that the rest of the segment just can’t match. But how do they match up against each other? We’ve compared the two to find out.

Value & Efficiency

One of the primary selling-points of owning a hatchback is its incredible affordability, and the 2018 MINI Hardtop 4-Door and 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI are no exception, both coming in well under $30,000. But the Hardtop 4-Door will save you even more money, with a starting MSRP of $22,600. That’s nearly $4,000 less than the Golf GTI’s starting MSRP of $26,415.
