Fun Sleeper Car — I really like that the car is small. It makes it lightweight so the power it comes with makes it a pretty quick car. It also has a really nice exhaust note which surprises many unassuming people. The power coming out of turns is unmatched in this class. There is nothing to really complain about the car. I guess you can say it needs a bit more room, but the point of the car is to be small, not a people mover. Although, the rear interior did surprise some people. It was a lot bigger than people thought it was.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nimble, Great handling, Pretty good power out of turns, easy to park

Cons: Not much cargo space.

It's A Great Car If One Wants Something Small, Very Sporty, Comfortable And Economical — Really nothing. This would be an especially great car for someone living in a large city. Very maneuverable, easy to park. Typically get 25 +mpg in town and high 30's on the highway. This car belonged to my spouse, who recently passed away after a lengthy illness (hence the vey low mileage.)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This car is a blast to drive.  VERY solid (feels like the BMW-manufactured oriduct that it is.) Drives like a go-cart; great gas mileage; lots of "bells and whistles"; sports suspension, transmission, and shift points;great sound system, drives like a go-cart (yes I know - its worth mentioning twice.) the seats are fantastic - just the right amount of adjustability and support.   MINIs are usually heavily customized.  Even in a city of 4 million, I've yet to see a "twin" of my car.

Cons: Not a lot of from in the back set, but the do fold for down to create surprisingly useful storage.

Amusing — 6,3 Seconds from 0-100 superb interior, everythings matching and maybe even the best car to drive with 211HP a bit expensive however if you buy it the car is super for having fun with it, but it's not very good for utility purposes except maybe transportation ;)

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

Pros: the acceleration *_*

Cons: that it only does 250km/h

It Is Awesome!!! — I have wanted a MINI for a long time. The car is amazing, very high sharp handling and all the amenities of a luxury car. It is so much fun to drive. I am only getting around 33mpg overall maybe because the car begs to be driven. With the back seats folded down there is plenty of space for trips to Lowe's. I especially like the 3 year no cost maintenance and the 4/50 bumper to bumper warranty. I have never had so much fun with any car than the MINI Copper. It is excellent all-around with great performance. One negative point: When the car was near 800 miles I had to call road side assistance due to a power failure. According to MINI the radio was improperly installed at the factory and eventually drained the battery. It took close to two weeks to get a replacement radio from Germany. Besides that the customer service in all areas was magnificent. I was just worried about this hiccup because none of my Honda's have ever failed me in any capacity.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: You will smile every time you find yourself behind the wheel.

Cons: If you don't get the MINI find your happiness somewhere else.

Love gas mileage and it’s sporty whippiness! Fun little car but not for a family. Too hard to get in the back seat for teenagers and grown ups.

The car was small, light. simple with a lot of power! From the outside this car doesn't look like much. but once inside and you take it on a a course with hard turns, the Cooper S does not disappoint at all. Great for canyon Runs!
