It would be fair to say that any of the latest Mini line up is a good car, but with the addition of an "S" badge the Mini becomes a very different animal indeed. The supercharged 1.6litre petrol engine develops an impressive 181bhp which is enough to make this little pocket rocket go from 0-60mph in just 7 seconds. The Cooper S retains the fantastic driving habits of its less expensive variants, so it's still a real "hoot" in the bends. The cabin is a mixture of modern plastics with retro touches that make it all the more special. The mini remains one of the most popular cars on sale today.
