With its sporting genes and allegiance to the cause of maximum driving fun, the MINI Coupe delivers a thrillingly focused driving experience. The first two-seater in MINI’s line-up indulges the driver with a level of agility unmatched in the small car segment, a unique body and interior concept and the brand’s customary commitment to premium levels of design, quality, equipment and customization.

A two-seater with space for more.

The MINI Coupe highlights its pure-bred, compact sports car character with oval recesses in the roof liner. Plus, standard-fitted sports seats offer outstanding lateral support through briskly-taken corners. Further back, an extremely high-opening tailgate and large luggage area with through-loading facility give the MINI Coupe outstanding versatility on the urban race track. No other MINI before it has offered so much load space for those creative road trips with a lucky other.

The spacious boot has a capacity of 9.8 cubic feet (280 liters) and offers enough room to swallow a large number of luggage items available from the MINI Lifestyle Collection. From the robust, hard-shell Rooftop series cases to easy-going Black Jack luggage and retro bags from the Shout range, MINI conjures up the right gear for any trip. These clever luggage solutions are available at and select MINI dealers.

An athlete in peak form.

Its flat silhouette and innovative “helmet roof” lend the MINI Coupe a sporty and individual allure. In addition to the integral roof spoiler, an active rear spoiler optimizes airflow at higher speeds.

The MINI Coupe can be ordered in the US with the most powerful gasoline engines in the brand’s arsenal. Outputs range from 121 hp in the MINI Cooper Coupe to 181 hp in the MINI Cooper S Coupe, and all the way up to the MINI John Cooper Works Coupe, a thoroughbred athlete that produces 208 hp.

After all that you probably want to see some eye candy. You ready? Sure you are, here it is:
