Designed and engineered by BMW, Mini embodies the 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 quicker, with sportier suspension settings and an invigorating exhaust note. An all-electric model is also available. A larger four-door Cooper and a four-door Clubman with barn-style rear doors are also offered. Buyers can choose a small SUV called the Countryman, which is also offered as a plug-in hybrid. The Mini infotainment system offers comprehensive connectivity, but it has a steep learning curve. Reliability is a mixed bag.
