What's New

The 2020 Mini Hardtop offers a fun driving experience mixed with British charm and standout looks. The Hardtop receives several changes this year, including a now-standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, a new cloth and leatherette interior upholstery, and more standard active safety features. Pricing has increased by $1,500 across the board as a result.

Choosing Your Mini Hardtop

The Mini Hardtop is offered in three trims: Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works. Pricing starts at $24,250 including destination for the Cooper and climbs to $34,250 for the John Cooper Works.

The Mini Hardtop is also offered with either two or four doors, though four-door models are only offered in Cooper and Cooper S guise. Four-door models carry a $1,500 premium over their two-door counterparts.

While the three aforementioned trim levels are broken down by engine, each trim is further offered in three sub-trims: Classic, Signature, and Iconic. Signature models add a panoramic sunroof, heated seats, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, and LED lights for an extra $3,000 or $3,500 over the Classic, depending on trim level. Iconic trims add those features plus navigation and leather upholstery for $6,500, $7,000, or $7,500 over the Classic, depending on trim level.

Engine Choices

Mini Hardtop trim levels are differentiated largely by engine choice. The base Cooper trim receives a fuel efficient 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder, while the Cooper S gets a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. The John Cooper Works also gets a 2.0-liter turbo-four, but the power has been boosted by a considerable margin.

Engine TypeTrim LevelHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
1.5L Turbo 3-CylinderCooper134 hp162 lb-ft31 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-CylinderCooper S189 hp207 lb-ft30 mpg
2.0L Turbo 4-CylinderJohn Cooper Works228 hp236 lb-ft29 mpg

Cooper and Cooper S models are both equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, although the one in the Cooper S is tuned to be a bit sportier. John Cooper Works models come standard with an eight-speed sport automatic transmission. A six-speed manual transmission will be available on all models, but Mini says availability is currently delayed.

When choosing your Mini Hardtop don’t be afraid of going with the base model. While less powerful, the three-cylinder turbo is very rev-happy and fun to toss around. The Cooper S version is a bit faster in a straight line, but the extra weight is felt in the corners. The John Cooper Works trim is a hot hatchback in every sense of the word that can rip with the best of them.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Despite being available with four doors, the Mini Hardtop doesn't offer much room for anything. While it can seat four, your backseat passengers won't be comfortable after about 10 minutes. However, the front seat occupants will be very happy with their comfortable seats and plentiful head room.

Cargo space is a different story, surprisingly. Two-door models offer 8.7 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 34 cubic feet behind the front seats, while four-door models offer 13.1 and 40.7 cubic feet, respectively.

Safety Features

The Mini Hardtop comes standard with rear parking sensors and Active Driving Assistant, which includes forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. This is a welcome change for the 2020 model, as last year’s model required adding several thousand dollars' worth of options.

Signature and Iconic models can be equipped with adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, and a park assist system through the $1,000 Driver Assistance Package.

The Mini Hardtop has a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, with a three-star rating for rear-seat side impacts.


The Mini Hardtop comes standard with a center-mounted 6.5-inch display with Bluetooth. On Signature models, an 8.8-inch touchscreen, navigation, Apple CarPlay (Android Auto isn't offered), and wireless charging are available through the $1,700 Touchscreen Navigation Package. These features become standard in the Iconic sub-trim.

MINI Hardtop

Cooper - From $24,250

The Mini Cooper Hardtop comes standard with the peppy 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, the 6.5-inch display, and seats with black leatherette upholstery. As described above, move up to the Signature or Iconic sub-trims to greatly enhance standard features.

Heated front seats are available for $500 on the Classic, while the Signature Upholstery Package on the Signature adds a choice of real leather upholstery, sport seats, and upgraded interior surfaces for $2,000.

Cooper S - From $28,250

The Cooper S is the sporty variant of the Hardtop lineup with its more powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a sport-tuned transmission with paddle shifters, and selectable driving modes. Inside, the Cooper S comes standard with Sport seats, and the wheels have been upgraded to 16 inches.

On Signature and Iconic models, a dynamic damper control system is available for $500, which allows you to adjust the vehicle's suspension.

John Cooper Works- From $34,250

The John Cooper Works comes with the more powerful four-cylinder turbocharged engine, an eight-speed sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and a sport suspension. LED headlights and taillights, 17-inch wheels, and special sport seats are now standard.

The dynamic damper control system is a no-cost option on Signature and Iconic models.

CarsDirect Tip

The sweet spot for the 2020 Mini Hardtop lineup is with the Signature sub-trim level. The number of additional standard and available features are significant compared to the basic Classic, while the price tag isn't as eye-watering as it is for the Iconic sub-trim.
