While subtle, you’ll immediately notice the newly designed fascias, bubblier front LED lights and larger windshield of the Mini Cooper Hardtop. The car comes in three trims: Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. Inside, faux leather seating with a sport trim greets you, complemented by a brand new gauge cluster with 8.8” touchscreen, controller-dial interface with Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration and a six-speaker audio system. Standard equipment also includes 15” alloy wheels, all-powered accessories and ambient lighting. Upgrades can score you things like 16” alloy wheels, sport-styled seats, sunroof, sport-tuned suspension and braking system, fog lights, real leather upholstery, HD radio and plenty of other goodies. A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offers 230 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. The Mini Cooper Hardtop is backed by a four-year/50,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
MINI has added a 4-door model to their hardtop lineup for 2015. The MINI Hardtop 4-door uses the same basic chassis as the 2-door but with a stretched wheelbase, adding more interior room, bigger back seats and of course an additional pair of doors. The 4-door version adds roughly 6-inches to the overall length of the vehicle when compared to the 2-door version but interior space grows in nearly every direction, with additional head, shoulder and foot room for rear seat passengers.
