The MINI Cooper S Roadster is the newest edition to the MINI family. It’s not the MINI Cooper Convertible, no. This one is different. The 1.6 turbo produces 181 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Allowing the turbo to overboost, though, will create 192 foot-pounds. So it scoots. It has a great stereo and navigation. But Nick still found a few (OK, more than few) things to nick-pick. So it’s a loser?
Not so fast.
The Roadster still has some redeeming qualities, no matter who is driving. Make sure to check out the full 2013 MINI Cooper S Roadster review.
