Mini Coupe and Mini Roadster: When Two Seats is Just Enough

Published on August 25 2015

Whether you like the sporty Coupe style or the open-air feeling of the convertible, the Mini Coupe and Roadster come in a variety of colors and, while their list of standard equipment is impressive, they can also be outfitted with great optional packages.

The Mini Coupe and the Mini Roadster are the 2-seaters of the Mini family, built for those looking for maximum style and sportiness. They both come in two variants; Cooper S and John Cooper Works. On the Coupe side, the Cooper S starts at $32,445 and the John Cooper Works starts at $39,695. As for the Roadster model, the Cooper S variant starts at $34,195 while the John Cooper Works starts at $41,195

Compact and Powerful

The Mini Coupe and the Mini Roadster both come with the award-winning twin-scroll turbo engine under the hood. The Cooper S variant engine develops 181 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque while the John Cooper Works trim has more power with 208 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. A choice of two transmissions is offered: a 6-Speed manual or a 6-Speed automatic gearbox. Fuel consumption has always been very reasonable with Minis, and while one is a coupe and one is a convertible, they both get the same fuel economy on both available engines with 8.1 l/100 km combined fuel consumption with the 6-speed manual transmission, and 8.3 l/100 km when those engines are mated to the 6-speed automatic.

Inside, the front seats are standard sport seats and there is an available piano black interior trim on the Cooper S (standard on the John Cooper Works model). The interior is also outfitted with great standard features such as a multi-function steering wheel with cruise control, velour floor mats, onboard computer, Carbon Black leatherette, power windows (with One Touch feature) and a Start/Stop function of improved fuel economy. The Mini Coupe and Mini Roadster also come with impressive standard technology features such as Bluetooth, USB ports, anti-theft system, MINI Boost Radio w/MP3 Compatible CD and AUX-in connection, and pre-wiring for satellite radio.

Stylishly Practical

Outside, style and technology abound with heated washer jets, body-coloured mirror caps, headlight washers, bi-Xenon headlights, white turn signal lenses and the signature chrome door handles. The John Cooper Works variants on both models get a specifically designed aerodynamic kit and front fog lights. Standard wheels on the Cooper S models are 16-inch Rib Spoke alloy wheels. One can also get 17-inch Cross Spoke alloy wheels on the Cooper S, but these come standard on the John Cooper Works variant.

Whether you like the sporty Coupe or the open-air feeling of the convertible, the Mini Coupe and Roadster come in a variety of colors and, while standard equipment is impressive, they can also be tailored to your individual desires.
