There are some people who love the term “cute” and everything it encompasses. If you’re one of them and you want a cute car, then the Mini Cooper is most certainly for you. This classic little convertible, which can seat up to four passengers at a time, is nothing short of adorable and makes an excellent choice for anyone who wants to make a sure statement with their car.
While the Mini Cooper may be attractive, it is also highly functional and a lot more practical than its cutesy looks may lead you to believe. Take, for example, its mileage specs. This car gets surprisingly good gas mileage, proving it’s not just nice for looks after all. In fact, you can expect about 28 MPG when cruising through the city streets and an even more impressive 36 MPG when you brave the highway.
With this vehicle, you’ll also benefit from a 7-speed Steptronic DCT transmission.
Think a cute little car can’t pack a powerful punch? Think again! The Mini Cooper does great with its Intercooled Turbo Premium Unleaded I-3, 1.5 L engine
Furthermore, as a Mini Cooper owner, you’ll benefit from reliable anti-lock brakes.
Featuring a curb to curb turning diameter of 35.4 feet and rack-pinion steering, this car is as easy to maneuver as it is on the eyes.
TIRE AND WHEEL DETAILS
The tires on this vehicle are surprisingly sturdy as well. Don’t believe it? Put these tire and wheel specs to work for you:
- A front and rear tire size of P175/65HR15
- A compact spare tire (included for your convenience)
- A front and rear wheel size of 15 X 5.5 inches
The Mini Cooper comes fully loaded with a Strut suspension system.
CARGO AREA DETAILS
Perhaps the only area in which this adorable vehicle falls short is its cargo carrying capabilities. While you may be able to load some items into it, it’s not meant for hauling heavy loads, but, then again, most of its fans don’t use it for that purpose.

- A frontal driver airbag
- A front passenger airbag
- A front side-body airbag
- Daytime running lights
