What's the used Mini Coupe coupe like?

Pick a hole and the BMW Mini range probably has it covered. For a time the firm even turned its charming little hatchback into a three-box, two-door, two-seat coupe and, on paper at least, a most appealing thing it was too.

It’s quite appealing to the eye, for starters. The front windscreen is heavily raked and the roof dropped to abnormally low levels to create the Coupe’s distinctive look. Despite impressions to the contrary, it’s actually a hatchback. Under the bonnet you can find any one of three different versions of the 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 2.0-litre diesel. The basic 122bhp 1.6-litre is reasonably quick, while the top-of-the-range JCW version packs 211bhp and certainly earns the stripes that it wears as part of its sporty demeanour.
