The 2012 Mini Cooper ranks 13 out of 40 Affordable Small Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 61 published reviews and test drives of the Mini Cooper, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The 2012 Mini Cooper packs great driving dynamics and good fuel economy into a small frame, but uncomfortable rear seats and a small trunk are also part of the package.
The 2012 Mini Cooper doesn’t have a perfect interior. Its small frame makes seat comfort hit-or-miss for most adults, and there’s barely any cargo space with back seat passengers. The cabin is well-made, but reviewers think that its retro-inspired dashboard is hard to use, especially for the driver. If you want a subcompact European car that’s more practical than the Cooper, reviewers think the FIAT 500 is a better option.
But for most reviewers, those ergonomic issues are null and void once you press the gas pedal because the 2012 Mini Cooper is one of the best-performing vehicles in the class. The base Cooper isn’t nearly as powerful as the Cooper S or John Cooper Works models, but it has enough punch to satisfy most drivers as they head to and from work, and has great cornering abilities for those occasional twisty roads. If an agile and zippy small car is at the top of your shopping list, reviewers think few small cars dominate the 2012 Mini Cooper.
