MINI Cooper Convertible
28 mpg city, 35 highway (31 Combined)

The MINI Cooper Convertible is a joy to drive either in standard Cooper or turbocharged Cooper S variants, but in base Cooper Convertible guise you get excellent fuel economy. And with a power-folding cloth top that takes just 15 seconds to open or close, combined with a built-in sunroof, you can always get the right level of sun exposure (or weather-tightness) for the day. The 2012 Cooper Convertible is very well-equipped, and its quick-ratio steering and very compact dimensions makes it a great choice for the city, yet the Cooper is also a surprisingly strong highway trooper.

  1. I don't understand the EPA numbers for the Miata. Mine gets 29 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, significantly better than the published numbers.

    Bad stuff?

  2. @Vince,
    Do you have a 2007 or earlier model? The EPA revised its figures for the 2008 model year to make them more closely resemble real-world results. So while the 2011 model might be rated lower, the gas mileage you actually see will probably be the same, if not better.
