Engines

1.5 ALL4 PHEV Auto
As well as a 1.5-litre petrol engine, you get an electric motor and battery pack. This means off-the-line performance offered from the electric motor is very brisk but it does tail off around 50mph, and the added weight doesnโ€™t do much for its handling. The car can run in electric-only mode for a claimed 26 miles, but expect this to be much less in real-world driving conditions. This version makes most sense for business users and those doing short distances.
2.0 D Auto
It may be almost as fast as the Cooper S, but this engine emits less CO2 than the regular Cooper petrol. Tempting but pricey โ€“ partially down to the auto gearbox.
Our pick
2.0 D
Despite being a fair bit quicker than the petrol Cooper, it has the lowest emissions and best fuel economy of the range. There is a significant price premium over the petrols, so youโ€™ll need to do plenty of miles to recoup your initial investment.
2.0
With 189bhp, the Cooper S feels brisk without being outright fast. Under normal use, itโ€™s very flexible and sounds quite sporty. The penalty is emissions and fuel economy that are on the high side.
1.5
With only 134bhp and 243lb ft of torque, the 1.5-litre engine feels rather underpowered. And being a three-cylinder, it fails to match the Cooper Sโ€™s smoother four-cylinder motor.
