KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz - Updated Date: 6/30/2015


While the name is about the only thing that's actually Mini on the 2016 Mini Cooper, the philosophy behind the car remains the same as it was so many decades ago when the first (truly) Mini appeared on the scene. Today, a new Mini Cooper gets you a high-end subcompact as either the 2-door Hardtop, 4-door Hardtop, or as the new Convertible. All Minis come with any one of three different turbocharged engines. All Mini Cooper models -- whether base, Cooper S, or the racy John Cooper Works editions -- offer a fun-to-drive feel, high style and nearly infinite equipment variations. If you're willing to spend extra money, a new Mini Cooper makes a compelling high-fashion option against more common subcompact cars like the Honda Fit.

You'll Like This Car If...

The 2016 Mini Cooper Hardtop and Convertible offer a zillion customization options and a fun-to-drive feel in a car that's still small enough to be fuel efficient and practical around town. The 4-door model was added last year, giving Mini Cooper buyers the option of a usable rear seat.

You May Not Like This Car If...

"Roomy" is a relative term, and if you regularly carry more than one additional passenger, a bigger car is probably a good idea, even if the 4-door offers 5-passenger seating. Then there's the price, which can come in at thousands more than a similarly equipped Hyundai Veloster or Fiat 500.

What's New for 2016

For 2016, the Mini Cooper Convertible now shares architecture of the Mini Cooper 2-door Hardtop. Additionally, 3-cylinder-powered Mini Cooper Hardtop models get super-ultra-low- emissions-vehicle (SULEV) status without affecting performance. The Sport Package now includes dynamic dampers, allowing owners to adjust from comfortable ride to sporty handling with the flick of a switch.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Whether you choose the original 2-door Mini Cooper, the new convertible, or the 4-door Mini Cooper, you'll find yourself behind the wheel of a sporty subcompact with surprisingly sharp handling and quick reflexes. Even though power isn't a strong suit -- with the notable exception of the 228-horsepower John Cooper Works models, of course -- the Mini makes the most of its front-wheel-drive chassis with a corner-carving ability that has to be experienced to be believed. On the highway or on rough pavement, the ride is on the rough side, it's definitely loud inside, and the quick steering can make the car feel nervous. Three turbocharged engines are available, from the 3-cylinder in base models, to the 4-cylinder in the Cooper S models, to that relative powerhouse in the 2-door John Cooper Works Hardtop and Convertible. Whether you choose the manual or quick-shifting automatic, every Mini Cooper is fun to drive.

Favorite Features

FUEL ECONOMY/FUN FACTOR
The 2016 Mini Cooper 2-door and Mini Cooper 4-door hatchback and convertible models are fun to drive, and they also get good fuel economy. For example, while the base models aren't exactly fast, they're quick enough, and fuel economy of up to 40 mpg is more than a consolation prize.

FUN DETAILS
The Mini Cooper is just as fun to look at as it is to drive. There are clever details everywhere, from the classic bug-eyed styling to the use of toggle switches inside. Even the ignition switch is a big red toggle in the middle of the dash.
