It’s been 12 years since BMW revived the Mini brand for the 21st century, enticing drivers to try out a smaller, but still powerful option to get them around town. Now, for 2015, Mini is ready to present the third generation of the compact that at first looks the same, but is actually very different. The changes are obvious once riders step inside, with more interior space, enhanced safety features, and higher quality finishes and technology all the while with its same sporty feel. The hardtop Cooper also comes with either a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine pumping out 134 hp and 162 lb\ft of torque or the S model’s 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine with 189-hp and 207 lb-ft of torque, but both will include Mini’s TwinPower turbo technology with direct injection. Combined with new aerodynamic tweaks on the outside and better fuel economy numbers, Mini fans have a lot to be excited about. The new 2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop will reach dealerships in the spring of 2014.
