Interior Design

The Cooper 2-Door Hardtop model seats up to four people in comfortable synthetic leather seats, and it offers ample head- and legroom for adult passengers. The rear seat is spacious as well, allowing tall or large adults to sit comfortably for long car rides.

As for cargo space, the Cooper 2-Door Hardtop has 8.7 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, which expands to 34 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. This is plenty of space to haul luggage, shopping bags, golf clubs, and other small cargo.

However, for even more connectivity options, you can choose features like a 12-speaker harman/kardon® premium sound system and an optional 8.8-inch display screen.

The MINI Connected infotainment system is highly intuitive and responsive, making it simple to navigate and find the functions you want. It can also be customized with color-changing LED lights for a touch of personality. Plus, with a handy Navigation System with real-time traffic updates, you’ll never have to wonder how you’re getting to your destination.

As for safety, the Cooper 2-Door Hardtop comes with a Rear Camera with parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic headlights. Adaptive Cruise Control, Parking Sensors, and a Head-Up Display are also available to help you ensure a smooth, safe ride.

Strong Performance

MINI Cooper Hardtop SpecsThe Cooper 2-Door Hardtop comes with a turbocharged 3-cylinder engine that produces 134 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, though two upgraded engines are also available: a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 189 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, and a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard for all engines, though a 6-speed automatic transmission is available.

The turbocharged engines deliver more power for highway driving and passing, but the base engine is plenty capable for daily driving. Regardless of the engine you choose, the Cooper 2-Door Hardtop has a smooth, pleasant ride quality and maneuverability that make it ideal for urban environments, but don’t be fooled—it’s also more than capable when put to the test on winding back roads.
