MINI

The MINI Cooper might be the UK’s most iconic export, but the MINI brand is currently owned by German luxury car maker BMW. Last year several of the brand’s core models received an update that includes refreshed styling. The most classic MINI is the Hardtop 2-Door, although it is much larger than MINI’s of the past. It’s joined by the more practical Hardtop 4-Door and the extra long, wagon-like Clubman. The Countryman crossover is the largest vehicle the brand offers, but is still one of the smaller premium CUVs on sale.

MINI still offers a convertible as well as an all-electric version of the company’s Hardtop 2-Door. MINI’s performance division, John Cooper Works (JCW), has enthusiasts covered, offering the JCW performance package on the Hardtop 2 Door, Convertible, Clubman, and Countryman.

MINI Cooper Clubman – Review, Specs, Pricing, Features, Videos and More

The MINI Cooper Clubman is a unique vehicle from a unique manufacturer. It is a small wagon-like vehicle with twin-swing doors at the rear in place of a traditional lift gate. Available with all-wheel drive, the Clubman is a great alternative to small crossovers. Especially if driving enjoyment is high on a customer’s priorities list.

MINI Cooper Hardtop 2-Door SE – Review, Specs, Pricing, Features, Videos and More

MINI went electric a few years ago with the Cooper 2-Door SE. The all electric MINI offers minimal range and is intended as more of a commuter than a longer distance driver. But the Cooper SE does feature on thing most EVs do not – that fun to drive factor.

MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door – Review, Specs, Pricing, Features, Videos and More

If the MINI Cooper 2-Door is a bit too impractical, maybe the 4-Door is the answer. By slightly stretching the iconic MINI Cooper, a set of rear doors are added making access to the back seats easier. Otherwise, everything we love about the 2-Door Cooper is included with the 4 Door. But there is one caveat; the JCW is not offered on this model.

Mini Countryman S Debuts With Big Power, SUV Size

Mini makes sweeping changes to the Countryman, its biggest little car ever, for 2024. The lineup has been entirely revamped, and the base Countryman is now the S All4 model. In fact, all Countryman models now feature Mini’s All4 all-wheel drive system as standard. The S All4 model replaces the Countryman Cooper as the entry point to the lineup, which was previously front-driven as standard. Because the new baseline is now an S model, Mini has bumped power up to 241 hp from the car’s 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. Last year, the Countryman S All4 made 181 horses. It’s also worth noting this huge boost in power only benefits US buyers. The rest of the planet will have to make do with 218 horsepower.
