The MINI Cooper, under the BMW group’s watch, has reminded us that this miniature modern classic has staying power. In its third generation, Mini sticks closely to its impish form language in a slightly more robust package.

It’s offered in two models—the Cooper and the Cooper S—both equipped with more room all-around and even more available features.

What's New for 2014

As part of its third-generation redesign, Mini adds 4.5 inches in length and .8 inches in height making more room for luggage and shoulders. Window controls have been moved to the doors.

CarsDirect Tip

If you're buying a MINI for its style statement, a Cooper will probably do the trick; if you're after performance, though, a Cooper S is for you. Whichever you choose, add options with care—if you get carried away, you can easily add $5,000 or more to your MSRP.
