Few cars come as close to conveying the pure joy of driving like a MINI, and the redesigned Cooper only serves to further emphasize this fact. From the more practical base model to the thrill-a-minute S, and with virtually every conceivable option under the sun available (except for increased leg room or cargo capacity), the MINI can be ordered to suit any driver. And though their price may seem high for what these cars are, try to find a MINI driver who regrets the purchase.
The MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S were wholly redesigned for 2007. Most notably, the car's inline-four engine was reengineered and fitted with fully variable valve lift and timing, which cleverly gives the car enhanced power, torque and fuel economy. The car was stretched by almost two inches as well, and steering became more responsive, improving an already stellar drive.
BMW unveiled a much-anticipated redesigned MINI coupe for 2007 and though the exterior won't seem markedly different to the uninitiated (a few inches longer, a few inches wider, a slightly altered belt line), all the fuss is warranted once you sit inside. The punchy all-aluminum inline-four was reengineered and is now rated at 118 horespower in normally aspirated form and 172 hp with the turbocharger (versus 2006 ratings of 115 for the base and 168 horsepower for the formerly supercharged S). While the power increase may sound nominal, the extra horses are much smoother courtesy of fully variable valve lift and timing. The S also benefits from a lower torque curve, with 191 lb-ft at 1600 rpm (versus 2006 ratings of 162 @ 4000), making its power more readily accessible. The end result is an even livelier car.
