TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Mini Hardtop

Mini Hardtop Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 Compared to most other performance-oriented cars, the 189-horsepower Mini Cooper S Hardtop is more fuel-efficient. With a six-speed manual transmission, the car achieves 24 mpg in the EPA's city test and 34 mpg in the highway test. The tested car's automatic transmission shaves an mpg off the highway figure but adds two in the city (26/33). In my suburban drivingn the trip computer typically reported low 30s, but as high as 38 with a relaxed right foot in "Green Mode." All pretty good, but the Mini's closest competitors are about equally economical. The much larger (but somehow not much heavier) Volkswagen GTI's EPA ratings are 25/33 with two pedals and 25/34 with three. The Ford Fiesta ST slightly tops them both with 26/35, but isn't available with an automatic transmission. Don't need 189 horsepower? The 134-horsepower non-S Cooper Hardtop achieves 29/40 with the manual transmission and 28/37 with the automatic. To match these figures (and then some) the Golf needs a diesel. The Fiesta, on the other hand, is available with a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine good for 31/43--but this engine is only offered with a manual transmission. see full Mini Hardtop review

The marketed fuel efficiency ratings are somewhat accurate. In city driving, I'm getting the "rated" 27 mpg. That rate, however, decreases as idle times (red light, stop sign, stuck in traffic, warming up the engine, etc.) increases. The 36 highway mpg can only be achieved if you stick between 65-70 mph, even on sixth gear. Regardless, getting relatively high fuel efficiency from a car that such a joy to drive is one of it's best selling points. see full Mini Hardtop review

With the 09 Cooper (not the S model), it was easy to get over 40mpg on 55mph roads. On 70mph highways, it was more like 35mpg. Was wonderful to fill up and see over 500 miles of range. see full Mini Hardtop review

I get an average of 29+MPG around town with the air conditioning turned on. I have got 34mpg on a 200 mile trip on country roads and I just did 404.9 miles at 85/90mph A/C on with a 300 pound passenger on I-95 and got 32.4mpg. This is all normal driving. see full Mini Hardtop review

What is not to like about 40 mpg. Granted, I do mostly highway miles, but even with my city driving mixed in, I am still getting close to 40 overall (39.5 to be exact). see full Mini Hardtop review

Average over the cars lifetime is 26MPG. Not stellar, but damn good. Credit the light weight for positives on this and the handling and performance categories. see full Mini Hardtop review
