Minis are usually more expensive than their rivals, but that's not the case with the Coupe. Model for model, it costs less than equivalent versions of the Peugeot RCZ and Volkswagen Scirocco, never mind the Audi TT. You can always rely on a Mini to have cracking resale values, too, so, it'll be a sound long-term investment. What's more, the Coupe has really impressive fuel and CO2 figures.
Mini Coupe Coupe quality & reliability
The Coupe has typical Mini quality – some of the materials are impressively lush, but some are just downright cheap-looking. It's all assembled solidly, though, so the interior should wear well. Mini usually does well in reliability and customer satisfaction surveys, and we see no reason why that should change with the Coupe.
Mini Coupe Coupe safety & security
The Coupe's go-kart handling might well give you the urge to push the car to its limits, but stability control is on hand to save you if anything goes wrong. Sophisticated brakes should also help you avoid an accident, but if you can't, there are front and side airbags to keep you from harm.
