Expert Rating

4.6 (Excellent)
27 City / 36 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.


Designed to extract maximum style from the MINI platform, the Coupe is a low-slung two-seater in the tradition of sports cars long extinct. While all MINI models express themselves with aplomb, the Coupe tries hardest to charm your pants off.

What's New for 2014

The MINI Coupe zips into 2014 with no changes.

Choosing Your MINI Coupe

All Coupes feature a firmer suspension than other MINI models and a Sport mode that sharpens up the throttle response, steering and automatic transmission (if equipped). The Coupe’s fun-loving appearance can be enhanced by any number of available body graphics, color schemes and trim packages.

The standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder produces 121 horsepower. There are two turbocharged versions on tap with 181 and 208 horsepower. All three engines can be paired with a manual or automatic transmission, both with six speeds.

The amount of power you get depends on the trim level:
