Description: Used 2015 Mini Cooper S for sale - $17,899, 22,033 miles with Run Flat Tires, Turbo Charged Engine, Leatherette Seats, Front Seat Heaters, Cruise Control, Auxiliary Audio Input
Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.429 reviews) Sure, it's a small car. It looks different. But that's what makes a Mini so memorable. It doesn't have a lot of space but more than enough for a couple of weekend bags and a few cases of wine. Its engine won't out-muscle the monsters from Detroit but do you really want to base your own performance and identity on something so...inflated? Borrowed from the Brits and born of a unique engine, the Mini is a sensible car with a growing following of loyal supporters. It drives like a go-kart and when was the last time someone was miserable after driving one of those? Exceptional handling, better-than-average gas mileage, and a style that defies most labels, this is a car for the individual.

Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.667 reviews) Amazing amount of interior room. Handles very well, turns on a dime. Car feel's very solid. Oh, that German engineering! Like the cockpi feel of the controls. Great sunroof that just permits venting, Air conditioning vents could have been better placed to give the driver a little more comfort. All the electronic readouts/set-up and look-up of information/symbols take a bit of getting used to. Had to download my owner's manual from on-line and it doesn't always tell you how to do things...like set up your cell phone so you can use it hands-free while driving. The gas mileage is great. Can't wait to take it on a long trip!

About The Mini Cooper S

Vehicle Summary

The Mini Cooper S is the car for you if you like a vehicle with a strong personality. It's fun to drive, versatile, and a colorful reminder that commuting to work or school doesn't have to be boring. Originally for sale as the performance trim of the Mini Cooper two-door hatchback, it has grown — along with the Mini Cooper line — to include a convertible, a four-door hatch, the Clubman SUV, and the Countryman Wagon. Despite only one or two major revisions across almost 20 years, the Mini Cooper S has remained a relevant and fresh choice if you're looking for practical fun packed in an expressive package.

FAQ

Q: Are Mini Cooper S vehicles turbo or supercharged?

A: Since the 2007 model year, all Mini Cooper S vehicles have been turbocharged. But that hasn't always been the case: new Mini Cooper S models for sale from 2006 and before are supercharged. 

Q: What does the S in Mini Cooper S stand for?

A: It depends on who you ask, but the general consensus is that the S stands for “sport," used to differentiate the base Mini Cooper from the more powerful Cooper S. Many enthusiasts claim that the famed John Cooper named the S for a one-off racing model. That said, it's clear the “S" doesn't stand for Supercharged or Special. We'll go with a lowercase “sport" in honor of the enduring automotive mystery. 

Q: What kind of mileage does the Mini Cooper S get?

A: Generally, Mini Cooper S mpg ratings stay within the high 20s to low 30s — with manual transmission cutting it short by one or two miles. More specifically, the EPA has estimated the 2018 Mini Cooper S hardtop two-door, with a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission, at 25 city, 32 highway, and 28 combined mpg.1

Since the second generation began in 2007, the Mini Cooper S has used a turbocharged engine to provide more power to the lineup of Mini Cooper vehicles.

Mini Cooper S vs. Other Cars

2018 Mini Cooper S vs. 2018 VW GTI

What could be better than two hatchbacks meant to please enthusiasts around the world? Not much. In this case, VW's erstwhile rocket, the GTI is very similar to the Mini Cooper S . Both are powered by turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engines — but the VW manages substantially more power at 220 hp. Fuel economy ratings are similar however, the EPA rates the 2018 VW GTI at an estimated 25 city, 33 highway, and 28 combined mpg when equipped with manual transmission and the 2.0L engine.1 The Mini Cooper sips fuel at an EPA-estimated 23 city, 32 highway, and 26 combined (when equipped with manual transmission and the 2.0L engine).1 

2018 Mini Cooper S vs. 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Few vehicles can drive better than the Mini Cooper S. The MX-5 Miata gives the Mini Cooper S a run for the money. Simply put, you can't go wrong if you're comparing these two fun-to-drive champs. The difference? Starting with power, Mazda is all about keeping things lean and light with the Miata's 2,300 lb. curb weight, 155-hp engine, and rear-wheel drive. The Mini Cooper S, on the other hand, has steadily muscled up to feature a 2.0L 189-hp engine. A 2018 Mini Cooper S 2-Door hatch weighs in at 2,760 lbs., all in front-wheel-drive configuration. 

2018 Mini Cooper S vs. 2018 Ford Fiesta ST

Some would say that the Ford Fiesta ST is what the Mini Cooper used to be, back in the first-generation days when the Mini was the talk of the town. Now it's more refined and powerful, while Ford offers a hot hatch with an edgy personality. Indeed, the 2018 Fiesta ST wins the power battle, squeezing 197 hp from its 1.6L Ecoboost® four-cylinder engine while the 2018 Mini Cooper S makes 189 hp from a 2.0L four-cylinder.

Fantastic car to drive.

I have loved this car from the moment I drove it. It's been fun to drive and has been a solid car. Whether zooming through twisty roads or taking it out for long drives, it's comfortable and won't leave you aching. I've heard that they're not super reliable but I haven't had a bit of trouble.

Big Things Come In Small Packages

Amazing amount of interior room. Handles very well, turns on a dime. Car feel's very solid. Oh, that German engineering! Like the cockpi feel of the controls. Great sunroof that just permits venting, Air conditioning vents could have been better placed to give the driver a little more comfort. All the electronic readouts/set-up and look-up of information/symbols take a bit of getting used to. Had to download my owner's manual from on-line and it doesn't always tell you how to do things...like set up your cell phone so you can use it hands-free while driving. The gas mileage is great. Can't wait to take it on a long trip!
