2016,The base powertrain across the range is a normally-aspirated 1.6L 4-cylinder engine making 118 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. The next engine up, standard on the Cooper S trims, is a turbocharged version of the same 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 172 horsepower rpm and 177 pound-feet of torque. The John Cooper Works trims get a high-performance turbo 1.6L engine that offers 208 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque.
2016,Transmissions for the hard top models include either a standard 6-speed Getrag manual or an optional 6-speed automatic with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

2016,All MINI Coopers come standard with safety equipment that includes six airbags, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, and stability control. The convertible trims feature head/thorax side airbags and an active rollover bar.
