The 2014 Mini Roadster is a small car that will put a big grin on your face when you drive it. That’s because the Roadster takes advantage of Mini’s race-car heritage and puts it in an open-air package. Since the 2014 Mini models were built by BMW, you also will enjoy more than a few upscale comforts.
A city-sized two-door convertible, the 2014 Mini Roadster seats two. It’s available in Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works (JCW) trim levels. These recognize Mini’s founder, the British engineer and racer John Cooper. A four-cylinder engine, six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission are optional. The Mini Roadster is midway in size between competitors such as the Fiat 500 Cabriolet and the Mazda MX-5 Miata. A separate car, the Mini Convertible, combines drop-top driving with a four-seat cabin.
There are no major changes to the Roadster for 2014.
Without a hard top, the 2014 Mini Roadster’s body looks like a single block of metal that’s been subtly carved into a sporty shape. The wheels are pushed out to the rounded-off corners, for a wide stance, and sporty details add the perfect final touch. Highlights range from a large lower intake at the front to center-mounted exhaust outlets at the rear. The Roadster’s manually operated soft-cloth top can be easily opened and closed from the driver’s seat.
The Roadster comes with automatic headlights, power-adjustable mirrors and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Options include xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, fog lights, heated power-folding mirrors, an aerodynamic body kit, 17-inch wheels, contrast-color mirror caps and a variety of stripes and graphics.
An unexpected layout greets you when you get behind the Roadster’s wheel. The speedometer is a large circle that’s integrated into the center stack, and the tachometer is mounted where most cars have their speedometers. Circle-shaped climate vents are on display as well. Despite its tiny footprint, the Roadster provides more front legroom than some midsize sedans. It also offers a trunk capacity of 8.5 cubic feet.
Leatherette upholstery is standard, as are manually adjustable seats, manual climate control, cruise control and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with a tilt-and-telescoping column. The Roadster is available with premium cloth or real leather upholstery, sport seats, heated seats, automatic climate control and a sport-style steering wheel.
The 2014 Mini Cooper Roadster, which is the base model, is equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that provides 121 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque. The Cooper S and John Cooper Works models are the real sports cars of the family. They have a turbocharged version of that same engine. In the Cooper S Roadster, you’ll enjoy 181 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, with up to 190 pound-feet of torque available for short bursts of acceleration. The JCW models are boosted to 208 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque, and they can deliver short pulses of more than 205 pound-feet of torque. All trims feature a standard six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. A six-speed automatic is also optional across the board.
The Roadster fully lives up to Mini’s reputation for incredible handling, thanks to a planted stance and a low center of gravity. However, a sport suspension and Brembo brakes are available to transform the Roadster into a high-performance go-kart.
With its manual transmission, the Cooper Roadster has fuel economy ratings of 27/34 mpg city/highway. Opting for the automatic transmission reduces that figure to 26/34 mpg city/highway.
Standard technology for the Roadster includes Bluetooth, HD Radio, a USB/iPod adapter and a CD player. The optional Mini Connected with Navigation package brings a navigation system, a 6.5-inch display and enhanced smartphone integration. A Harman Kardon audio system and satellite radio also are optional.
