Designed and engineered by BMW, Mini embodies the classic charm of the classic British runabout. The base two-door Cooper is a ground-hugging and agile front-wheel-drive hatchback. Cooper S versions are even quicker, with sportier suspension settings and an invigorating exhaust note. A larger four-door Cooper and a four-door Clubman with barn-style rear doors are also offered, in addition to a small SUV called the Countryman. Despite their diminutive size, Minis command a premium price and shouldn’t be viewed as bargain cars. The Mini infotainment system offers comprehensive connectivity, but it has a steep learning curve. Fuel economy is generally commendable. Reliability of the turbo engines is a concern, though owner satisfaction runs high.
