2011 MINI Cooper Hatchback
Benefits of Driving a 2011 MINI Cooper Hatchback
The MINI Cooper is one of the most exciting and stylish cars on the market. All models offer fun, agile handling. The base model features excellent fuel economy at 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, while the convertible allows for carefree, top-down motoring at the push of a button. The Cooper S brings serious performance to the MINI lineup and the Clubman adds extra space for sharing the MINI motoring experience with friends. The John Cooper Works package, first available in 2009, adds performance tweaks to turn the already go-kart-like MINI into the hottest hatchback on the road.
What's new for 2011?
MINI has upped power output from its pair of engines. The Cooper's 1.6L 4-cylinder now produces 121 hp, while the turbocharged Cooper S ups its power to 181 hp. The S now includes an overboost function, which increases torque momentarily from 177 lb-feet to 192 lb-feet.
