From race car models to Mini truck models, the car company strives to push the boundaries, and that is obvious with the fast John Cooper Mini Cooper model.
A cool thing about the Mini brand is the company strives to keep the car modern in terms of tech and engineering, yet even in 2016, the Mini Cooper has a classic style. For example, 2016 Mini Cooper models actually still have round headlights, which is a classic car feature many companies did away with years ago.

Mini Cooper Models and Exteriors
The Classic Mini is available as a 2 Door Hardtop, which is the original 4-passenger Mini Cooper body style, and as 2Door Convertible and a 4 Door hardtop. There is also the two-door and four-passenger Paceman, but the Clubman and Countryman are more spacious four-door models that have seating for five passengers.
The body style of the Classic Mini is boxy and aggressive, but its European stylings give it a performance touch. One of the best things about Mini Coopers is the freedom buyers have to design and customize their vehicle. Mini offers up to 10 million different design combinations, so you can truly make your Mini personalized. Not to mention the color of the contrasting roof and mirrors can be changed and personalized as well.
The exterior of the Clubman, Countryman, and Paceman models possess the same boxy look and design possibilities as the Classic Mini, but they each have a different body shape that separates them from the other models.
The Clubman is the largest and most spacious four-door Mini and it looks much longer than the other models. The Paceman is a 2 Door Hardtop Mini, but it has sportier look and it looks more like a coupe than the standard 2 Door model. Then, there is the Countryman, which looks very similar to the Classic Mini, but it is wider and taller giving more room for the fifth passenger. The Countryman model is meant for more than just the average road and its roof racks give it a more rugged appearance.
The interior of every single Mini model contains identical features as previously mentioned. Mini boasts about their unique interior features such as a cockpit feel, interior lighting in many different colors, a spacious interior despite the “Mini” look, race inspired dials, and more. The only interior difference is the sports mode button that comes in both the Countryman and Paceman trims.
Technology features for these vehicles include some great options. Mini Connected with a display screen, navigation, Pandora/Spotify, and more, and handwriting recognition touch controller dials are both available on any of these Mini models and trims. These features remain the same across all models and trims including the Countryman, Clubman and Paceman.
