In no particular order:

1. The standard petrol Cooper now has a decent amount of power; always thought the basic Coop was underpowered. Fun, but underpowered. Torque like a diesel, much sportier than preceding Coopers and no increase in fuel consumption.

2. The seats are now fully comfortable on long journeys. My previous Coopers gave my grief.

3. The basic radio is actually good quality.

4. Love the adjustable boot floor.

5. Noise levels inside the car are also improved over previous models.

6. Cornering is brilliant. I have a 'test' corner near me. In my previous Coopers I bottled it at 55. Now I manage 60+

7. Dual zone air con :)

As above.
The Cooper engine is quite a revelation, always fun to be driving such a torquey yet efficient engine.

The interior design and materials used are another plus point. And the HUD. Brilliant.

I don't have HUD but it does look brilliant.

I also like the way the throttle response is tuned in sport mode. I had sport mode on my 2011 Cooper and although the steeering tightened nicely the throttle response wasn't that much different to 'normal'. The current sport mode gives a decent kick to acceleration. I love it.

Yes, the interior looks quite classy. One or two niggles about where some of the switches are placed but that's for a different thread. This thread is for 'likes' :)
