At one end of the spectrum, there's the fuel-efficient and fun subcompact (with a 134-hp, turbocharged 1.5L three-cylinder engine), while at the other, there’s the insane John Cooper Works edition with a 228-hp, turbo 2.0L four cylinder). Between these two extremes, there are the 189-hp S trim levels. All variants are offered with six-speed manual or automatic transmissions—your choice. The five-door version’s wheelbase has been extended by 72 mm for more rear-seat legroom.
