2014 MINI Cooper
The third generation 2014 MINI Cooper ($TBA), continuing the trend set by previous generations, is a little less mini, with a longer wheel base, longer, wider, and taller body, and increased interior capacity. Available in two models, the Cooper and Cooper S, you get the choice between a three-cylinder 134-horsepower engine or a four-cylinder 189 horsepower engine, both featuring turbo chargers. The faster of the two can make it to 60 mph in just over six seconds, thanks in large part to a healthy 162 pound-feet of torque. Also available — in addition to a kitted out interior with plenty of technology like a heads up display and improved entertainment system — are new six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
