MINI Roadster owner reviews

"All engines in the MINI Roadster are smooth, but the powerful 1.6-litre turbocharged engines in the Cooper S and JCW suit the car’s playful character best."

I've had this car nearly two years and still absolutely love it. Can't begin to imagine what I would change it for . . . . except perhaps a John Cooper Works at some point! It's been completely reliable. I have some noise coming from windscreen which has yet to be resolved but this does not deter from it being the best car ever. Love it. Have the top down nearly every day except when it's raining. It lives in the garage so can drive top down on crisp, frosty winter mornings when everyone else is scraping ice off their windscreens. Great sized boot.

I have not stopped smiling since i got it, had a Cooper D hatch for 5+years was 100% reliable, so had to go one better SD roadster, was going to have MX-5 glad I did not and yes I can compare because I have had 2 of them. Totally brilliant handling, braking, looks, fuel, love it.
