2002 MINI Ratings, Reviews and Awards

It's hard to imagine that there was a time when the MINI Cooper wasn't a frequent traveler along US roads, but that time was right before 2002. In 2002, British car marque MINI, now part of the German BMW Group, made its first inroads into the US market. The first MINI to arrive in North America was a three-door hatchback known of the MINI Cooper. The 2002 MINI Cooper was bigger than earlier models, with a wheelbase that was about 17 inches longer and about 11.5 inches wider. Inside, there is seating for four, although space is a bit tight and the riders in the back are likely to be cramped. For 2002, MINI offered the Cooper in several versions. The base model has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 115 horsepower. A sportier model, the Cooper S, has a supercharged engine with 163 horsepower.
