2020 MINI Cooper Interior Review


Interior: 6.2

 The 2020 Mini Hardtop and Convertible have attractive cabin styling executed with upscale materials and fewer cheap plastics than you’ll find in some rivals. The front seats are comfortable, and the infotainment system is generally easy to use, though a few controls can be hard to reach. Cargo and rear-seat space fall short, even compared to other small cars.

  • "For the most part, the Mini has excellent interior materials, using less hard plastic than competitors. Occasional creaks diminish the overall impression of quality a bit." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Inside, the 2019 Mini Cooper Hardtop and Convertible artfully blend modern technology (new 6.5-inch touch screen) with retro kitsch (chrome toggles that look vintage 1966). The centrally mounted touch screen dominates the dash, which also features a tachometer and speedometer mounted in a large pod behind the steering wheel." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)


The Mini Hardtop 2-Door and Convertible can seat up to four people, while the 4-Door seats five. Synthetic leather upholstery is standard, while genuine leather and heated front seats are optional.

The front seats are comfortable and supportive, but the rear seats are less accommodating. Though adults can fit in the back of four-door models on shorter trips, the rear seats in two-door models are downright cramped. It can also be hard to access the back seats.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this setup the second-lowest rating of Marginal because the lower anchors can be hard to maneuver around and they're buried deeply in the seats.

  • "The 2020 Mini Cooper is small by any definition. Be it 2-door or 4-door, its tiny passenger compartment is a tough fit for anyone more than 6 feet tall. Of course, taller folks can always pony up for the convertible and drive with the top down." -- Autotrader
  • "Moreover, we like the Mini seats. They’re modern, not retro, and they are both comfortable and supportive. Remember this, though: Back-seat room isn’t great. Three people can fit across the back bench of the 4-door Hardtop, but they’ll be rubbing elbows and thighs." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "The short (lengthwise) doors and tall opening make getting in and out of the front seats easy, even in tight spots. They do, however, complicate access to the rear seats, forcing an inelegant stoop and crawl." -- Edmunds (2019)

Interior Features

Standard features include a 6.5-inch infotainment display, a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, a USB port, a rearview camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and rear parking sensors.

Available equipment includes an 8.8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, navigation, wireless device charging, a 12-speaker Harmon Kardon stereo, satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, front parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and parallel park assist.

Modeled after BMW’s iDrive interface, the Mini has a relatively straightforward infotainment system. A few central controls can be hard to reach, but there are lots of physical controls for most settings.

  • "Inside, today's Cooper offers better materials as well as controls that sacrifice some whimsy in favor of improved function. We approve. At the same time, there are still plenty of unique elements that make a Mini a Mini. There are still toggle switches, special upholstery and trim types, and our personal favorite feature: the circular center display, which boasts a novel ring of LED lights. They serve a number of different functions, acting as a tachometer, parking proximity display and even an alert for upcoming navigation system directions." -- Autotrader
  • "Operating the low-mounted infotainment dial is challenging due to the obtrusive center armrest and parking brake. The system itself is well-executed, with many logically placed switches and buttons." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The infotainment system is a version of iDrive, which has matured into an intuitive and easy-to-use system. As this is a modern Mini and not a clinical German hatch, whimsical touches like the glowing and color changing mood right around the screen can be found on the inside." -- Autoweek (2015)


The Mini Convertible has a 5.7 cubic-foot trunk that expands to 7.6 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded down. Both Hardtop models have a little more room, but their totals are still unimpressive compared to other subcompact cars: 8.7 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 34 cubic feet with the rear seats folded for the two-door model, and 13.1 and 40.7 cubic feet, respectively, for the four-door.

  • "Cargo space is tight, at a tiny 8.7 cubic feet, as is interior storage with small but numerous bins. Maximum cargo is slightly above average at 38 cubes. A clever trunk floor panel keeps the load surface flat and conceals a bin underneath." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "A new 60/40 folding seatback allows this additional volume to be allocated between passengers and stuff as needed. The Hardtop 4-Door still can't match the packaging magic of the Honda Fit, and is more like the Ford Fiesta in both exterior size and interior space." -- Car and Driver (2015)
  • "But appeal is one thing, and utility is another. As wonderful as MINIs are to slip into tight spaces, they're not much help when you need to haul four adults or bulky cargo. That's especially true with the ragtop model; as the convertible top pretty much ensures that you'll never fit sizable objects in back." -- Autotrader (2015)
