The all-new 2020 version of the subcompact Mini Cooper is a small car having sporty handling, strong brakes, agile steering, and fast acceleration. The car comes in 2 separate models which are Mini Convertible and Mini
Hardtop. The Hardtop is available in two and four-door variants.
All the Mini Coopers cars are available in three variants which are Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. The three trims are Signature, Classic and Iconic
among which all features are divided. These trims vary from providing minimal features and cloth upholstery to the BMW-style leather and comfort features.
It is a very reliable car that made the forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking standard for the year 2020 whereas the manual transmission got rejected this year. The Mini Cooper is built with German quality. The following are the specifications of the Mini Cooper.
Mini Cooper Specifications
A robust three-cylinder, turbo premium unleaded 2-liter engine paired with a standard 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission offers excellent power. The torque and power given by the engine are 236 Nm and 189 hp.
The John Cooper Works model has a standard 8-speed automatic transmission and an improved turbo-4 engine which pumps out 228 hp.
The John Works model has the fastest acceleration because it jumps from 0-60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. The handling of the car is both playful and comfortable, especially on long drives. It is a front-wheel-drive that provides gas mileage of 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. A big 11.6-gallon fuel tank gives maximum energy. 17 inches aluminum wheels are used in the vehicle. The wheelbase is made kinda short which allows responsive steering. This steering makes it easy for the car to turn around corners. A 4-year warranty is given by the car.
Mini Cooper Exterior
The appearance of this car is unique in its way. The parent company of the car is BMW which seems evident from the exterior of Mini Cooper. It exudes a very distinctive fun vibe with its friendly face and a lot of rounds of designed features. Some of the trademark Mini Cooper details are big round-shaped headlights, infotainment graphics, and Union Jack tail-lights.
Many customers prefer the exterior of a two-door hatchback instead of a four-door one. The length of the Mini Cooper depending on the model is 12.6 to 13.2 feet.
A lot of customizable options are available from which buyers can design their version of Mini Cooper according to their taste.
Mini Cooper Interior
The Mini Cooper is a somewhat cramped car with enough space in the front supportive seats but not much at the rear end. Apart from this, a lack of space is provided in the cargo area as well which is only 8.7 cubic feet. The cargo space only increases to 34 cubic feet when the back seats are folded down. The convertible model is even smaller because its trunk space only amounts to 5.7 feet. Thus we can see that Mini Cooper is fit for short journeys and not long travels.
However, the build quality is excellent which contains leather upholstery at a good price. Both the models have an upscale cabin styling made with fine materials. There is very little use of plastic as compared to the car’s competitors. This makes Cooper a small luxury car. In all the trims, synthetic leather upholstery is standard whereas original leather along with heated front seats is optional. To install the child safety seats,
there are two sets of LATCH connectors for the rear seats.
There are a lot of interior features such as a 6.5-inch infotainment system display, Bluetooth, a USB port, a 6-speaker sound system, and a rearview camera. Some of the available equipment contains navigation, an 8.8-inch
touchscreen, wireless device charging, Apple CarPlay, a 12-speaker Harmon stereo system, dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, a panoramic sunroof, parallel park assist, front parking sensors, keyless entry, and adaptive cruise control. The infotainment system is very simple to operate apart from some of the controls which may be difficult to reach due to the parking brake and center console. Moreover, this infotainment
system is derived from BMW’s iDrive.
Some details are unique in the car such as the chrome toggles with innovative technology.
