2010 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


This car is perfect for my daily 20 mile, one way commute. Fits into 50% more parking spaces - such a pleasure in NYC. Performs great although gear-shifting in auto lags a bit. Switching to manual takes care of that. Love the look and roomy interior (cant speak for backseat.) Gas mileage a little less than estimated (27) but still very good (24-25). Sport mode is a little jumpy for city driving (for me) but great for highway. Overall very very pleased with purchase.

Best Features

Handling and pickup are second to none. Affordable price. Unique look. Car is all windows adding to spacious feel of interior. Armrest-worth the extra $250 - adds another storage space to otherwise limited storage capacity. Ipod interface.

Worst Features

Mesh sun-roof cover does not block sun well enough. Visors also are too small - when put to the side window does not come close to providing shade for me or passenger. Limited storage space.
