The modern Mini Cooper traces its heritage to a line of small British cars built for almost 50 years. Historically, the Mini Cooper variants were simple and efficient transportation but the modern Mini is as tech-laden as any luxury car. The Mini Cooper is one of the few upscale compact cars to find sales success in the US market.
