Why didn't I do this sooner?

2012 Mini Cooper Norm Collins - San Antonio, TX 04/04/2016

Even though I am 6'2", I easily fit in the Mini. Now, no one can sit behind me so basically I have a three seater. Driving a Mini is a blast. It's kind of like driving a sports car. Wait... it really is. I loved my F1 50 until I had to go to the store and park it in the parking lot or in the garage, go to the gas station, pay the monthly bill, or go slowly around corners.

This is a fun car!

2014 Mini Cooper Nancy Delia - Goldsboro, NC 04/12/2017

I enjoy the look, the easy handling, the comfort and the fact that it is a manual transmission. The gas mileage is phenomenal, I get 36 mpg on the highway and around 35 mpg around town. There is plenty of legroom in the front seats, a little less in the back.

A street-legal go-kart ... the most fun car ever

2006 Mini Cooper Gary Chiasson - Nashville, TN 08/08/2016

Fun factor is off the charts. I bought this car for my wife, who commutes to a part-time job. We already have two other vehicles, so practicality wasn't a concern. She decided she wanted a small convertible and after reading a lot of reviews, this is what we chose. We've had it four months now with no issues. I understand maintenance can be costly on these, but we haven't had a single issue. It gets decent mileage (it would get great mileage but it's so much fun to step on the gas in this thing), it's comfortable, and it is the most fun car I've ever driven, hands down. It has surprising room for the driver and passenger, but the backseat is only good for two mid-size passengers and even then, only for short distances.

MINI Cooper Overview

The MINI Cooper is one of the most iconic nameplates in the world. The three-door hatchback is extremely recognizable, and was the first MINI Cooper offered in a redesigned generation in 2014. With excellent handling and surprising acceleration capabilities, the MINI Cooper is a sharp car that maneuvers well and lives up to its reputation.

MINI Cooper History

The original MINI was released in the 1960s as a subcompact coupe. It gained popularity as an affordable, stylish, and easy-to-park vehicle. After a lengthy break, it was revived in 2002 under new ownership as a hatchback. The convertible version of the MINI Cooper arrived in 2005 and stopped production in 2008, right after the second generation was introduced. Since its revival, the MINI brand has expanded from its three-door hatchback original to encompass a five-door hatchback and a convertible.

How It Drives

All Cooper trim levels have a surprising amount of power. Additionally, fuel economy is great, even on higher-level trims that drive with more horsepower than expected out of such a compact car. While the lightweight frame allows for a maneuverable ride and operates best on smooth highways, but the cabin does not block out sound well. The upholstery, on the other hand, receives universal acclaim. Seats are built with a combination of black leather and high-quality fabric.

Used MINI Cooper Value

True to its nameplate, the various MINI models compete with different small cars. The car has a memorable personality thanks to its heritage, design notes, quick steering, and engineering. Modern versions perform well and are fuel efficient. Additionally, though the cabin is small, it can be customized to fit a lot of features.

MINI Cooper Standard Features

The recent generation of the MINI Cooper comes in 2 trims in addition to its base model: Cooper S and John Cooper Works (JCW). Each, including the base model, is available as a two-door coupe or a convertible. Each trim level comes with a six-speed manual by default, though the Cooper S and base model can swap the manual for a six-speed automatic transmission. The base model has a 1.6L four-cylinder which has a surprising amount of power. Anyone demanding more agility can look to the Cooper S or the JCW, which each support much more horsepower. Beyond that, recent models of the MINI Coopers are highly customizable with long list of optional features including Bluetooth connectivity, keyless ignition and entry, sunroofs, and navigation systems.
