Small children, petite women and Hobbits may sit in the back on short trips. Otherwise, forget it. It's a MINI! see full Mini Hardtop review

Smallish seats made the front feel kinda cheap. The middle armrest was also a very hard plastic, but the door was slightly softer plastic. see full Mini Hardtop review

Despite being a hatchback, not a lot of headroom in the back, almost as same as the Mustang. Seats were more upright and headrest should have been integrated into seatbacks; rather, it was mostly a nuisance. see full Mini Hardtop review

I drove a John Cooperworks MINI and I found the front seat to be incredibly flat and unsupportive. It was the complete opposite of the GTI seats, and a big part of why I purchased the GTI instead see full Mini Hardtop review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2010 Mini Hardtop

2010 Mini Hardtop Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 2dr Hatch turbocharged 181hp 1.6L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Don't be fooled by it's looks. It's a drivers car. Despite it's meager sized 1.6 liter engine, the MINI Cooper S has an impressive 0-60 time of 5.4 secs., thanks to the turbo charger and the lightweight chassis. The Getrag six-speed manual transmission has been described as "bulletproof." So far, after two years of driving, it is living up to that description. The combination of a peppy engine and well-matched transmission makes the MINI an excellent driver's car. Even at sixth gear, you can still feel an umph when you step on the gas. The Cooper S does suffer from a discernible turbo lag and the gear ratio can be improved. I suspect BMW tamed the gear ratio a bit too boost fuel efficiency. see full Mini Hardtop review

While not fast, it can get up and move pretty well for a little go kart. see full Mini Hardtop review

The JCW is very fast and efficient. The transmission is massaged to shift smoothly and quickly see full Mini Hardtop review

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. see full Mini Hardtop review

The clutch is the weak link. With a stronger clutch the 0-60 time would even improve. see full Mini Hardtop review

2010 Mini Hardtop Tires: Cons

Having no room for a spare, full size or otherwise, MINIs come with runflat tires that could withstand punctures for "fifty miles." Hopefully, you could find a service station within that distance. And when you get there, hopefully runflats are in stock and that you have enough money for a replacement. I ditch them almost right away in favor of less expensive, more comfortable, performance tires--mind you. I carry a Slime emergency tire repair kit that seals and inflates, just in case. see full Mini Hardtop review
