2dr Hatch turbocharged 208hp 1.6L I4 6-speed manual FWD

Why the 2009 Mini Hardtop?

Exterior styling

It is a very sporty looking hatchback with a very wide stance and just plain looks like a car should look.

Powertrain performance

My 2009 JCW has more horsepower then I will probably ever use along with the Germen made Getreg six speed manual transmission makes for a very fast powerful car. The handling is a match for any car out there. It is a true "SPORTS CAR" in every way.

Fuel economy

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.

Brand reputation & image

BMW now builds the Cooper and the car is a very well loved machine by everybody I talk to at anyplace I stop. People come up to me and ask about it all of the time. The quality is perfect and my dealer is great. It seams "EVERYBODY LIKES MINI COOPERS"

Materials & workmanship

I have no squeaks or rattles at 4,000 + miles and no water leaks. The car is solid and tight.The finish is flawless and all of the doors and hatches fit perfect. Interior is excellent and looks great.6-speed manual clicks into gear and engine is excellent
