Mini Cooper

The 2016 Mini Cooper boasts agile handling and high-quality cabin materials. It is our sixth-highest rated subcompact car.

Not only is the classic minicar fun to drive, it’s now safer than ever – the 2016 model introduces an option for automatic pre-collision braking. However, critics note that the two-door model’s rear seats and cargo area are small and that the ride can feel stiff.

The base trim comes with a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that makes 134 horsepower. The mid-tier Cooper S is powered by a 189-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line John Cooper Works model gets a respectable 228-horsepower with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
