The MINI Cooper Coupe and Roadster models are among the smallest vehicles for sale in the U.S., yet they're true sports cars in many ways, offering quick acceleration and excellent, go-kart-like handling. The Roadster brings top-down thrills no matter how fast its driven. MINI claims the coupe is the fastest-accelerating model from the brand ever and it has the highest top speed in the brand's history.
Those who crave high performance will want to head straight to the John Cooper Works (JCW) Roadster and its stronger engine and additional performance upgrades. It's a feat that even considering that, the JCW earns up to 35 mpg on the highway.
