2010 MINI Cooper Review

(4 Stars)  Mini drivers smile for a reason

Overview
Cars that get good gas mileage are always dull behind the wheel, right? Not so, says the Mini Cooper. Born from BMW in 2001, the Mini has been hugely successful since its introduction. Growing into a second generation in 2007 the Mini continues to evolve and delight owners with its' cute good look, razor sharp handling, not at all unimpressive performance, and its respectable fuel economy. Add to that the Mini is the most customizable car in its class and you have the recipe for a vehicle which will continue to sell well for years to come. Most options that come in packages can also be ordered individually, so the possibilities for personalization abound. The mini is available as either a hatchback or a convertible, and three trim levels.

The standard Mini is powered by a 118 HP 1.6 liter four cylinder engine. A six speed manual is standard with a six speed automatic transmission being offered as an option. The S model uses the same drivetrain but adds a turbocharger to the engine, bringing power up the 172 HP. A John Cooper Works edition does even better bringing the Turbo four's power up to 208 HP.
