Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Mini’s interior is charmingly quirky, but at the cost of user-friendliness. Rear-seat passenger space is tight, but front-seat occupants will find little reason to complain. The Convertible model’s power top will fold in 18 seconds to unlock the joy of unlimited headroom. Too bad its trunk is tiny. Hardtop models offer more practicality inside their hatchback bodies—but still not a lot given the car’s small size. The Hardtop model’s trunk is quite small, offering room for just three carry-on suitcases in our testing. But drop the rear seats, and there’s room for 12 carry-ons. The five-door Hardtop offers more space for cargo with the rear seats folded, but the Convertible offers less. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated front seats come standard on the Mini Cooper, and a leather interior is optional.

Revised and Simplified Adaptive Suspension

For 2021 MINI has eliminated the electronic adaptive dampers and replaced with what they call Intelligent Adaptive Suspension. It’s a simplified approach to providing the best of both worlds that initially reads a bit like cost cutting on paper. We know it works with a passive frequency selective set-up that opens a valve in each damper 50 milliseconds at a time to change damping by up to 50% during the largest wheel impacts. But there isn’t a lot of information beyond that data point out there. So we went directly to MINI to better understand the system. 

In short the system attempts to give drivers both comfort and sport in one system without the need to change settings. The result is that the new adaptive suspension system (only available in the F55. F56 and F57) reduces wheel hop which allows for better traction and generally more compliancy. It can get softer than the previous comfort setting and more stiff than the previous sport. And as you’d expect on JCW models it’s tuned to be a bit more aggressive still.  

In our tests there’s a touch more compliance over bumps but without the downsides of a more soft spring suspension around corners. While it’s not a night and day difference it would seem to be a good step in the right direction for 99% of owners and needs. Crucially the added comfort over bumps doesn’t impact performance and was always predictable in a hyperactive way that MINIs can be. In some ways it reminded more of us of classic Minis which had body roll designed into the cone suspension that never detracted from outright performance.

Exterior Revisions

The exterior styling has been revised rather successfully in our eyes with simpler lines and less cheap plastic. While we like the gloss plastic that has replaced much of the textured stuff, it will be interesting to see how it looks after a few years. 

As part of the refresh MINI has eliminated the fog lights and instead integrated what they call bad weather lights inside the LED headlight module. While we couldn’t test their effectiveness in fog it’s a great concept of it works as it cleans up the front and allows (for the first time) JCW models to have additional lights.
