2006 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


A lot of fun, but lacks some practicality. Got rid of the run-flat tires to improve gas mileage and my dog kept stepping on the reset button anyway. Warning: no matter how considerate of a driver you might be, there are other drivers who are outright hostile to Mini Coopers (I've had other people confirm this). Maybe it's jealousy. Either way, watch out for it.

Best Features

The extra driving lights are great for back roads, the toggle switch controls are always fun, and the mileage/trip computer is addictive.

Worst Features

I think they already fixed the cupholder. Better chrome plating- it keeps peeling. Relocate the run-flat reset button to the toggle switch area. What IS that empty space for, anyway?
