2012 MINI Cooper Coupe Comfort & Quality

7.0
Comfort & Quality

Modern MINIs have long had a surprising amount of space in their front seats, and the MINI Coupe is no exception. Even those well over six feet will find enough head and legroom, while the largely useless rear seats of the standard Cooper aren't missed by any but the most petite.

Cargo space in the hatch area won't really be missed either, though taller packages will be less likely to fit. Still, the Coupe holds a fair amount of gear, particularly considering its smaller overall appearance.

The 2012 MINI Cooper Coupe's solid mechanicals combine with a quirky interior that's comfortable but can develop some squeaks and rattles.

Materials, fit, and finish, are par for the MINI brand, which means generally good-feeling plastics and fairly accurate assembly, but the creaks, groans, and rattles of other MINIs are likely to develop here as well, and will be particularly noticeable over rough roads, which highlight the often stiff ride quality of Cooper S and JCW models.
