Mini Needs Better Gas Mileage

2005 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I have owned this car for about six months. It's fun to drive, has a classy interior, and is loaded with everything and has chrome everywhere. It is easy access to whatever you need. This car has a great panoramic roof!! With a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine it needs to get much better gas mileage though. I have the auto. w/o supercharger and only get about 26 mpg. I would suggest the S model for those who drive on the highway. Getting on and off highway ramps gets a bit tricky. As for the interior room, I've taken 3 coworkers of average size to lunch and they seemed comfortable on the short ride. I enjoy this car because I'm a 5'3 inch female and it fits me. Getting in and out is easy, and I have a back seat for stuff. I just need to adjust to the lack of power.

Best Features

The interior style and panoramic roof.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage for an engine size.
