R58 Mini Cooper Coupe
Years 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
Styled like a Cooper hatchback wearing a backward baseball cap, the Mini Cooper coupe forgoes the Cooper’s back seat and practicality for a short roof and conventional trunk. Alas, the sweet-handling two-seater looks faster than it is. Power comes via a fuel-efficient 121-hp four-cylinder mated to a standard six-speed manual or optional automatic transmission. Like all Minis, the Cooper coupe has tons of personality and is highly customizable with options. Our scales tell us the two-seater is about 100 pounds heavier than the four-seat hatchback. Either way, it remains a small front-drive car that understeers at its limits.
The Mini Cooper Coupe is all about fashion. That’s neither good nor bad; it’s just what it is. Essentially the same car as the traditional Mini Cooper hatchback underneath, the Mini Cooper Coupe differs with its shorter and more steeply raked windshield, two fewer seats, baseball-cap-style roof and, alas, higher price.
About The R58 Coupe
Three power-trains are offered. Base-level Cooper models use a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder that makes just 121 horsepower. It’s rated at 29 miles per gallon city/37 mpg hwy with the manual, or 28 mpg city/36 mpg hwy with the automatic. Step up to the Cooper S Coupe and you get a turbocharged version of the same engine for 181 hp. For that model, fuel economy falls to 26 mpg city/34 mpg hwy with the automatic or 26 mpg city/35 mpg hwy with a manual. John Cooper Works models, which add 27 hp for a total of 208, have the same fuel economy ratings as a Cooper S Coupe.
