Design

When you're dealing with a car as well known as the MINI Cooper, any design changes have to be handled with extreme care. While the 2020 MINI Hardtop 2 Door may have updated styling, it retains the spirit of the original Mark I MINI that defined British culture in the 1960s and beyond. The compact size and distinctive shape make it a worthy successor to the MINI Cooper cars of old, and the updates add even more. Take the taillights, for example. To honor its British heritage, the 2020 MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door features available LED Union Jack taillights!

It's not just the outside that benefits from well-thought-out design. Since the wheels have been pushed to the corners of the car (just as they were in the original MINI), the interior is remarkably spacious. Carbon Black SensaTec upholstery is standard, but you can choose upgraded options like Chesterfield leather. The trunk gives you nearly 9 cubic feet of space, and you can fold down the rear seats to get up to 34 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Technology & Convenience

To add to your comfort, the MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door offers available features like heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and keyless entry. You can even get a panorama roof that gives you a great view of the sky and makes the interior of the MINI feel even bigger. When it comes to connectivity, even the entry-level MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door features a 6.5-inch touchscreen. To get the most out of your MINI, we recommend adding the available navigation system. It includes real-time traffic updates so that you can plot the right course to avoid the worst of traffic in the Los Angeles area. You can even add technological features like a head-up display!

Safety Ratings & Features

The MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door may be small, but it's big on safety. The 2019 MINI Cooper earned a 2018 Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and the 2020 model is built on the same platform, with the same safety features. The ultra-rigid body that makes the MINI an engaging drive is also designed to keep you safe, while eight standard airbags (including side-curtain and knee airbags) inflate at different rates based on the severity of the accident.

Performance

The 2020 MINI Hardtop 2 Door offers three available engine choices, all of which are engaging. The standard MINI Cooper model has a three-cylinder turbocharged engine that generates 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Choose the MINI Cooper S and you'll get a 4-cylinder that puts out 189 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, or go with the John Cooper Works model for a powerful engine that gives you 228 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque!

Of course, it's not just power that makes the MINI distinctive. Its small size and four-wheel independent suspension provide impressive handling, making it perfect for taking corners. The available Steptronic Sport automatic transmission provides smooth shifts, but you can still grab the gears thanks to its manual mode with paddle shifters. What's more, the Cooper S and JCW models even come with selectable driving modes. You'll be able to choose between Sport, Green, and Mid settings.

MINI: A True Icon

When the first MINI Cooper--the Mark I--came onto the scene, the automotive world changed forever. The unmistakable design, fun handling, and surprisingly spacious interior made it an instant hit in its native United Kingdom, and the rest of the world soon followed suit. To this day, MINI cars retain the features that made them renowned; however, they combine these with state-of-the-art updates to keep them fresh and exciting. When you take a MINI for a test drive, you're not taking the wheel of an ordinary car: you're sitting in a legend. Come have this experience for yourself at South Bay MINI, located at 18800 Hawthorne Blvd., Torrance, CA 90504.
