1. Mini Cooper Roadster

The soft top version of the Mini coupe, the Mini Cooper Roadster is a throwback to the old-timey roadsters. This two-seat, front wheel drive convertible comes equipped with a turbocharged four-cylinder. Producing 181 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque, the Mini Cooper Roadster has plenty of acceleration, making for a fun driving experience. The suspension is well built, allowing for sharp handling and responsive steering. The Mini Cooper Roadster received average safety reviews, with no category rated “poor”. The only real complaint many reviewers had with the Mini Cooper Roadster involved the convertible top. While up, the Roadster has poor visibility, and on the highway it can be a bit noisy. Available features include leather upholstery, heated seats, rear parking sensors, a Harman Kardon sound system, satellite radio, navigation, and the Mini Connected infotainment system, which includes a 6.5-inch display, smartphone app integration and voice recognition.
