Date Published: December 2, 2020

In discussing the best small hatchbacks, the Mini Cooper is bound to come up in conversation. The Mini Cooper is a vehicle that delivers retro style, charm, class and desirability.

With a range of models varying from a hardtop three- or five-door hatchback or a two-door convertible, every model features an upscale, comfy cabin if you’re willing to pay for it. There are two trim levels for each variation of the Mini Cooper, with the more expensive of the two equipped with a more powerful and more desirable engine.
