2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Have owned my Mini for three months now. It gets a lot of attention and questions from curious people. People even roll down their windows and ask questions when I'm sitting in traffic. Can't believe how smooth and fast the car accelerates. Torque steer on this car can be a little scary if you punch it hard. Very comfy for two people. Great on gas, averaging 32 MPG with combined city/highway and can go almost 400 miles on one tank. Had a Murano try to follow me through the twisty bits a couple weeks ago. That was funny. The ride can be a little harsh over bumps and is probably not for everyone. Probably the most irritating thing about this car is having traffic in front of you.

Best Features

Acceleration. Seats are classy and cradle driver. Great gas mileage without having to give up performance. Nice quality interior. Good looking exterior. Handles well. No turbo-lag...six speed is easy to drive.

Worst Features

Standard stereo is so-so and hard to after-market upgrade. Ride can be harsh over bumps/railroad tracks. Could use a latch on interior of car to unlock hatch. Arm rest between driver and passenger should be standard.
