Cooper

Continuing with only minor updates for 2006, the retro-styled MINI Cooper continues in coupe and convertible versions. The base model offers a 115-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that's mated to a choice of a five-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission. The Cooper S, meanwhile, provides added muscle by means of a 168-horsepower, supercharged 1.6-liter engine that drives the front wheels via a slick-shifting Getrag five-speed manual gearbox. The MINI Cooper delivers precise handling, with the S version's larger wheels and tires and beefed-up suspension components offering added cornering abilities. Ragtop versions feature a fully automatic convertible top that uniquely incorporates both a heated glass rear window and an integrated power sliding sunroof feature. Anti-lock brakes with cornering control and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, and front-side airbags come standard. Dynamic Stability Control, a navigation system, Harmon Kardon premium stereo, Park Distance Control, run-flat tires, and a number of novel paint schemes and interior color combinations are optional.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
