The mini handles like a go-cart on rails, it looks cool, and it has a nice interior. There are plenty of parts available to maintain it.

This Mini Cooper S Is Fun, Fast, Economical And Has Tons Of Class! — I have an S Class Mercedes and an Acura RDX, but everyone in the family fights over the keys to the Mini! Its hard to describe just how great this little car makes you feel when you're driving or riding in it, but it creates a feeling of well-being, safety and most of all, FUN! Its surprisingly practical, too, and makes a great "grocery-getter." Its extremely quick and going through the gears is a treat. The build quality is BMW all the way and everything works as it should. All-in-all, a great all around car for those who enjoy actually driving. It encourages you to take "the long way!"

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Incredible handling, economical, Safe and a kick to drive.  Great for in-town and plenty of room with the back seats folded down to carry a ton of stuff!

Cons: None

Great For Small Family , Especially Good For Older Adult Couples ( Little Extra Room In Back Seat) — I loved this car and got lots of looks and all the women thought it was sooo cute. The Germans sure built a nice car when they decided to take over the Mini Cooper look . The British have nothing to be ashamed of , by having it made by BMW !!!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun car for the summer

Cons: Small size easily lost in parking lot if next to bigger vehicle

Fun-to-drive, Sporty, Gas Sipper, Thats Great For A Single, But A Little Small For A Family. — This car was a great commute car while I was single. The agile, speediness of the car makes it a lot of fun to drive. Best part was the fact that I still got great mileage, even though I've got a bit of a lead foot, lol.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, Good Gas Mileage, Fast

Cons: Not big enough trunk space for bigger items

We bought a 2017 Mini Cooper S. We needed to find a smaller light weight coupe to pull behind a class B RV. Price, size, power, equipment of the S model is we think? A good fit! Read More
