Benefits of Driving a 2012 MINI Cooper Roadster Convertible

The MINI Coupe and Roadster are compact sports car that combine efficiency and fun in equal measures. A choice of 1.6L 4-cylinder engines power the two vehicles. Small displacement means good fuel economy, with all three engines achieving at least 33mpg on the highway. An optional turbocharger provides plenty of power for those wanting a bigger dose of straight line speed. Prices start at just over $22,000 for the Coupe and just under $25,000 for the Roadster.

Model Review

Both the Coupe and its Roadster sibling come in three model trims. Cooper, Cooper S and the top of the line John Cooper Works edition. The main differentiator between the trims is the engine. The base Cooper makes due with a non-turbocharged version of the 1.6L 4-cylinder making 121 horsepower. The Cooper S adds a turbo charger, bumping output to 181 horsepower while the John Cooper Works version further ups the ante with 208 horsepower, making for quite the thrill in such a small car.
