There will be a lot of talk about the 2021 Mini cooper, considering its great reliability, sporty-stylish look and great possibilities that it offers, such as Apple CarPlay, a six-speaker stereo and many more. The 2020 model only sported minor updates, we expect this release to throw in a little more, yet there is not much room for improvement of this iconic design.

If you are a Mini Cooper fanatic or you just love amazing, stylish and affordable cars, let’s dive deeper into the world Mini Cooper. You’ll maybe find out some new information that you didn’t know about upcoming 2021 Mini Cooper.

What can we expect from the 2021 Mini Cooper

We at carfacta became a fan of Coopers in 2005. And since then, we always liked the new launched generation of cars more than the previous one. Moreover Mini Coopers are part of the BMW brand, a quality guarantee.

In 2005 Mini Convertible came with a fully automatic roof. Also, when the roof opens, two small power windows for the rear seat passengers are automatically lowered. It had a top speed of 134 mph (215 km/h) which was topped by Mini Coupe in 2012. The 2012 Mini Coupe had a top speed of 149 mph (240 km/h) and it is powered by a turbocharged 208 hp 1,598 cc four-cylinder and 155 kW.

Then, in 2014, we met the Mini Hatch/Hardtop which was a bit wider, longer and taller than the outgoing model. Considering these changes, it was obvious that the Mini Hatch will have a boot volume increase in 2021.

With 2021 around the corner, we have high exceptions when it comes to 2021 Mini Cooper. It will be demanding task to top the expectation. Mini Coopers series have succeeded to top expectations for decades now, we have a doubt that 2021 Mini Cooper will amaze us with its 2021 look and performance.

What other Mini drivers think about the car

Although there are minor disagreements, users agree on one thing when it comes to the Mini Cooper: it is a fun drive, sporty and stylish. On the other hand, for some, it can be too small, do not think of it as a carrier for a family of 4 or a trip to Ikea. Cooper drivers also like its fuel economy. 

2021 Mini Cooper versus its competitors 

If you are a Cooper fan you have a specific, aesthetic taste when it comes to vehicles. However there are other options more important than the appearance of the car like performance and driving comfort.

Consider the 2019 Honda Fit. It doesn`t have that sporty look and vibe. But the Honda Fit`s price is about $6,000 less than Coopers and offers great safety features.

The Fiat 500 is about $5,000 less expensive than the Cooper. It is also styles neatly. But, of course, when it comes to available safety technologies and driving dynamics, a point goes to Cooper.

When it comes to safety, there are few things to know about Mini Cooper. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tested the 2014 Mini Cooper 2-door for crashworthiness. They came to the conclusion that the position of the dummy they were using for testing maintained its position very well in relation to the door frame and steering wheel. Also, the risk of injuries to its legs and feet was low.

It is expected that 2021 Mini Cooper will have amazing reliability. Also, it will have some powerful engine options. When it comes to the interior, the Mini Cooper will probably keep its unique, stylish and sporty look.

What also sounds appealing about the 2021 Mini is the availability of Apple CarPlay, an 8.8-inch touch screen, wireless device charging, a USB port and a six-speaker stereo.

We estimate the fuel economy of the Cooper will be around 28 mpg in the city and on the highway it is about 38 mpg.
