Used Mini Cooper S (Mk1, R52/R53 2001-2008; Mk2 R56/R57 2007-2013)

The first of the ‘BMW’ Minis was launched in 2001, with the Cooper S (R53) hatch being added to the line-up in 2002 as the range-topping model. It used a supercharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder which was good for 168bhp. With a six-speed manual and multi-link rear suspension it was a hoot to drive and firmly established the model as a very desirable hot hatch. A convertible was made from 2004 to 2008, but the extra weight and a less solid body meant it wasn’t as involving as the hatch.

The second-generation Mini Cooper S was launched in 2007, with the previous model’s fizzy supercharged 1.6 ditched in favour of a turbocharged unit with 181bhp. The styling wasn’t quite as convincing as that of the earlier car, with the Mini having gained a little bit of middle-aged spread. Hydraulic power steering was ditched in favour of an electric set-up and overall it wasn’t quite as focussed a machine as the original Cooper S.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Mini’s interior is charmingly quirky, but at the cost of user-friendliness. Rear-seat passenger space is tight, but front-seat occupants will find little reason to complain. The Convertible model’s power top will fold in 18 seconds to unlock the joy of unlimited headroom. Too bad its trunk is tiny. Hardtop models offer more practicality inside their hatchback bodies—but still not a lot given the car’s small size. The Hardtop model’s trunk is quite small, offering room for just three carry-on suitcases in our testing. But drop the rear seats, and there’s room for 12 carry-ons. The five-door Hardtop offers more space for cargo with the rear seats folded, but the Convertible offers less. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated front seats come standard on the Mini Cooper, and a leather interior is optional.

How is the Mini Cooper on tech?

All 2022 Minis get an 8.8-inch digital display mounted front and center. The all-new user experience has a modernized look and feel. It also comes with two available color schemes: Lounge and Sport. This is a big upgrade from the previous generation interface. All in all, it’s a nice system to use. 

Although Mini has optional adaptive cruise control, backup camera, and other tech features, you can still have a very analog experience in one if you care to. 

The Mini still comes with a six-speed manual as standard! Yes, you read that right. Mini being the racing company they are at heart, still gives enthusiasts the three-pedal car they want. The dash even still has toggle switches to add to the racer experience. 

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The Mini Cooper comes with standard automated emergency braking and offers adaptive cruise control and park assist as options. For more information about the Cooper’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Standard automated emergency braking
  • Standard lane-departure warning
  • Available adaptive cruise control

Are Mini Coopers expensive to maintain?

As much as I love driving the 2022 Mini Cooper S, I hate how expensive parts and repairs are. Minis aren’t known for their reliability either. The average cost of maintenance per year for a Mini Cooper is $846. For reference, the average cost for maintenance for subcompact cars across the board is only $456, according to RepairPal

If we are going to call the Mini Cooper a sports car, which we are, then this aligns nicely with what we know of sports cars. No one cares how much it costs to repair a Ferrari, do they? Of course not! It’s a Ferrari. Sports cars are supposed to be expensive; the Mini Cooper just makes you pay for it over the long run instead of at the dealership. 

Fortunately, you won’t need to worry too much about repairing the 2022 Mini Cooper S in the first few years because it’s also backed by the brand’s 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty.
