Mini Cooper Overview
The new third-generation Mini is longer and wider. Engine choices are a 134-hp three-cylinder or a frisky 189-hp four-cylinder turbo, with either a six-speed manual or automatic. We measured 31 mpg overall in the base automatic and 30 mpg from the S with its stick-shift. Handling remains very nimble and sporty, but agility has been dialed down a bit compared to previous generations. The ride is markedly better than before and the cabin is quieter. The backseat is still pretty small. You can spend hours online configuring your ideal Mini, but it can add up to a small car costing around $30,000. Reliability is still unknown.
