Overview

The front-wheel drive Cooper is available in either a two-door hatchback or a two-door soft-top convertible bodystyle.

The convertible soldiers on unchanged since its release in 2005 with a 115-hp 1.6-liter engine bolted to either a five-speed manual or CVT automatic transmission. Standard safety features include six airbags on the hatchback, four on the convertible, ABS, and Electronic Brake Distribution. Features such as Xenon headlights, Park Distance Control, stability control, rain sensing wipers and front and rear fog lights are optional.The 2008 MINI Coopers are a carryover from 2007.
