John Cooper Works 2dr
2020 MINI Hardtop

2020 Hardtop Photos
Character abounds in the 2020 Mini Cooper. Available as a 2- or 4-door hardtop, this compact runabout combines the charm of the original with the best of today's technology and performance.

New standard active safety features and some additional extras on a few trims are the sum of the changes for 2020. With the manual transmission on hiatus, the automatic gearbox has also been made standard. An all-electric version known as the Cooper SE is now available as well. The new equipment and automatic transmission contribute to the $2,000 jump in price over last year.

Base Cooper Hardtops are powered by a 3-cylinder engine that makes 134 horsepower. Cooper S models trade that off for a 189-horsepower turbo-4. The most potent option is the John Cooper Works (JCW), which uses a 228-horse turbo-4. All models are front-drive only.

The JCW comes exclusively with an 8-speed automatic, while the lesser-powered engines get a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. A 6-speed manual had been standard equipment, and will return for 2021 in a few models.

Every engine, even the base model, is enough to make the Cooper a peppy little pocketful of retro kitsch. The 0-60 mph dash takes 7.4 seconds with the base 3-cylinder or can arrive in 6.0 seconds in JCW models.

The NHTSA has awarded the Mini Cooper 2-door a four-star overall crash test rating. The IIHS gave that bodystyle their highest rating of Good.

A host of active-safety features are newly standard for 2020. The list includes blind-spot monitors, low-speed automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alerts, and forward-collision warnings.
