Despite its boy racer looks, the Coupe doesn't outperform the Hardtop siblings with which it shares running gear. But that means its fuel economy is just as good as other MINIs: Even in its most powerful form, the Coupe is frugal, returning 35 mpg on the highway.
Despite a low-cut roofline that limits the view in some directions, there's ample headroom for the driver and passenger. A storage center takes the place of rear seats. The cabin has an otherwise familiar MINI look, with signature details like distinctive switches and an oversize speedometer.
For buyers who like MINI's cheeky personality and value style over passenger and cargo space, the Coupe offers an interesting option.
