      FEATURES

      premium. not pretentious.

      Our reputation was built on high-end parts and performance, without the stiff upper lip or price. Because in a MINI, the only thing that should be uptight is your co-pilots hand around the “oh s*&%” handle as you devour another sharp turn.

       FULL FEATURE LIST

      performance

      TWINPOWER TURBO ENGINES

      Every model in the New Hardtop’s lineup comes with a cutting edge MINI TwinPower Turbo that leverages the renowned performance engineering and development expertise of the BMW Group. By supplying immediate torque that holds steady throughout the engine’s power curve, the new MINI Cooper Hardtop goes zero to sixty 2.3 seconds quicker than its predecessor*.

      You can see what an expert thinks of the new engine and a host of other premium performance features in the video above. 

       MORE PERFORMANCE FEATURES

      WORLD FAMOUS HANDLING

      With all 4 wheels pushed to the corners for a wide, go-kart stance, ideal front-to-back weight balance and an incredibly nimble suspension system, the new Hardtop has plenty of our iconic MINI swagger and go-kart handling. For even tighter control, the new Dynamic Damper Control (DDC) option actually lets you control the stiffness of the suspension. Want a softer, more fuel-efficient ride? Done. Or feeling hungry and in the mood to devour a few sharp turns? The DDC happily complies, stiffening your suspension for even more aggressive cornering.

      ADJUSTABLE DRIVING MODES

      Every MINI Hardtop has 3 driving modes you can switch on the fly, standard. For extra punch, use Sport Mode to automatically adjust your engine, steering and transmission settings points for a stiffer, sportier ride. For softer, more fuel-efficient motoring, switch into Green Mode. With optimized fuel delivery, tweaked shift points and a coasting feature that disengages automatic transmissions when your foot’s off the gas, Green Mode maximizes every last bit of engine efficiency and kinetic energy for downright miserly fuel consumption. Of course, when you want the best of both worlds, kick it into mid-mode for a happy motoring medium.

      Safety

      built to take a punch.
      engineered to avoid one.

      The real key to driver safety? Avoiding accidents altogether. That’s why a MINI’s world-famous handling and numerous Active Safety features help you steer clear of hazards and less nimble or distracted drivers.

      And in the rare chance an accident is unavoidable? That's when a MINI Hardtop's premium quality and dependable Passive Safety features leap into action. From an incredibly strong, protective frame to the advanced Crash Sensor System and 8 dual-stage Smart Airbags that monitor driver and front passenger position, seatbelt use and impact severity to determine inflation rates, our most advanced engineering goes into keeping our passengers safe from harm.

       SAFETY FEATURE LIST

      DUAL STAGE,
      8 AIRBAG SYSTEM

      We’ve managed to pack 8 airbags into every MINI Hardtop, surrounding you by safety on all sides. 2 front, 2 side-impact, 2 knee, and 2 ceiling mounted side curtain airbags constantly monitor driver and passenger positions, seatbelt use and impact severity – and then determine airbag inflation rates accordingly.

       TOP SAFETY FEATURES

      rigid body

      Thanks to its high-strength steel front end and side panels, the rigid body of all MINIs reduces body torque, freeing the suspension to do what it does best - provide super-tight handling. A flex-free frame also reduces squeaks, rattles, vibrations and cabin noise. And the rigid body can withstand great forces, which means an increased margin of protection in the event of a crash.

      ABS + ELECTRONIC BRAKE DISTRIBUTION

      With the latest generation of 4-sensor, anti-lock brakes a MINI helps you stop on a dime while remaining in complete control. MINI also comes standard with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) to automatically distribute brake force to different wheels depending on your MINI's current load and balance.

      design

      RE-DESIGNED COCKPIT.

      The cockpit in the new Hardtop is more refined than ever, with additional dash and interior surface options and new, premium materials. Seats, too, have been redesigned with softer, more comfortable upholstery. The easy-to-read speedo is now in front of the steering wheel, and a set of sleek, refined switches sit nicely at the base of the dash. And our start button has been replaced with a glowing red start/stop toggle ignition switch. Flip it to begin satisfying those primal motoring urges. 

       DESIGN OPTIONS

      dynamic lighting

      Your MINI is prepared to be an extension of whatever motoring mood you happen to be in, with customizable ambient lighting and a sleek LED light ring in the dash that changes color in response to your engine speed, driving mode, audio volume, climate control or interior lighting. 

       NO TWO MINIS ARE ALIKE

      sculpted body

      With the same short overhangs and bulldog stance that made MINI famous, but paired with a sleeker profile and more muscular body, the MINI Hardtop 2 Door still makes being little kind of a big deal. And when compared to previous models, this pint-sized powerhouse is really only bigger where it counts – in the cockpit – for even more interior leg, shoulder, and cargo room.

       INTERIOR FEATURE LIST

      Size & VALUE

      BIGGER THAN YOU EXPECT.

      “Wow! There’s so much space in here!” (or some similarly surprised comment) is something we almost always hear from folks sitting inside a MINI for the first time. See, what most don’t realize is that a few of our most important performance features – the engine turned sideways so it doesn’t poke into the cockpit and our kart-like, wheels-at-the-corners layout – are actually solutions we invented over 50 years ago for the sole purpose of creating more interior passenger room. Add in our “plant-on” roof and you’ll begin to understand why MINIs, perhaps ironically, are often the car of choice for some of the tallest motorers.

       INSIDE THE COCKPIT  DIMENSIONS

      JOHN HRCKA: 2010 COOPER S HARDTOP

      “The big test: sitting down in one. Amazingly, I fit! I had plenty of head room. My legs stretched straight out beyond the pedals. My 6'7" body finally found a home inside, as close as I’ll get to a small sports car.”

      LOUIE BOERTJE: 2012 JCW Hardtop

      “Wow! There’s so much space in here!”

      JEREMY LETENDRE: 2010 COOPER S HARDTOP

      “I sat inside a Cooper S hardtop and was amazed that I could easily climb into it. The seat was quite comfortable and if I pushed the seat all the way back it was too far. I couldn’t reach the pedals! I have had it for just over 3 years now and it is the most fun I have ever had in a car. I love it more and more everyday.”

      QUALITY & VALUE

      MINIs are held to the highest standards of quality – a fact reflected by how well they hold their resale value over the years. And with our standard 3-year/36,000 mile, Boot to Bonnet No Cost Maintenance** saving you up to $1,428†† in routine stuff like oil changes, wiper blades and more, it’s easy to see why MINIs are so popular with owners who like to have fun AND be smart with their money.

      MINI MOTORSPORTS

      It’s a little known fact that right from the jump, some of the top names in racing (John Cooper) recognized us for the ferocious handling machine we’ve become. And we still race – and win – regularly, serving healthy portions of dust on the World Rally Championship circuit and chewing up asphalt at a blistering pace in rally cross.
