TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Mini Hardtop

2015 Mini Hardtop Reliability And Durability: Neutral
2015 The Mini Hardtop, the VW GTI, and the Ford Fiesta all have been the subject of more than their fair share of owner horror stories. At this point, all three models are too new to know how they'll hold up in the long run. As I write this, though, the 2015 GTI is better than average, the 2014-2015 Hardtop is about average, and the 2014 Fiesta is somewhat worse than average (we don't have enough participants for the 2015). full 2015 Mini Hardtop review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Mini Hardtop

2015 Mini Hardtop Gas Mileage: Pros
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. full 2015 Mini Hardtop review
