2012 MINI Cooper Fuel Economy

8.0
On Fuel Economy
With its sporty nature, it's easy to forget that the MINI Cooper is also a light, compact, four-cylinder hatchback. It's therefore surprisingly efficient, scoring 29/37 mpg city/highway in base form with the manual transmission. The automatic deducts 1 mpg from both scores.

The Cooper S is also good on the gas mileage, at 27/35 mpg with the manual and 26/34 mpg with the automatic. The John Cooper Works, the most powerful model in the range, rates 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.


Despite its sporty performance and cute appearance, the 2012 MINI Cooper is also an efficient little hatchback--though green-minded buyers will prefer the Cooper S to the JCW.
