  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 29 mpg
    • Highway - 37 mpg

Not only does the 2013 Mini Cooper coupe get an impressive 488 miles per tank, but it is easy to maneuver in rush-hour traffic and fun to drive, if and when the road opens up. You'll want to conserve your gas when sitting in traffic, but when you're free to roam, pop the Mini Cooper's Sport Button and enjoy your ride. The Sport Button, which comes standard, adjusts various settings for you to provide quick acceleration and tighter steering when you need it.

Zipping in and out of traffic also will be a breeze with this 1.6-liter, four-cylinder sedan, thanks to the front and rear anti-sway bars that come standard in all Mini Cooper models.

Driving the Mini Cooper is fun, but when you are in standstill traffic, it can still be enjoyable, thanks to HD AM/FM radio and six-speaker CD system that also comes standard. You won't have to worry about the noises outside, thanks to the speed-sensitive volume control, which automatically makes the audio quieter when you slow down and louder when you speed up.
