There’s a huge amount to say about the MINI Cooper S. Not to be confused with the Mini – the smaller, British car designed by Alec Issigonis and made immortal in the film the Italian Job – this car is built by BMW. That means you can be assured it’ll be reliable.

The Cooper S is a slightly warmed-up version of the standard Cooper, and sits in the range below the high-performance John Cooper Works (JCW) model. It has been available in Hatch, Clubman estate, Countryman SUV, Paceman Coupe and Roadster bodystyles along with a convertible version. 

Its rivals include the very retro Fiat 500 along with the Citroen DS 3 and even theSuzuki Swift Sport. Other body styles rival cars such as the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross,Ford EcoSportNissan QashqaiFord Focus and even the Toyota GT 86. With the MINI Cooper S there really is something for everyone.
