Overview

"I LOVE MY MINI"

Exterior and Interior

Includes all the gadgets inside, heated seats, Bluetooth, dabs stereo. spotlight washers, xenon headlights are just a few of the comforts you get. Only downside is my full leather seats aren't actually full leather, on the back of the driver and passenger seats is a less superior fabric which appears to be plastic!

Performance and Economy

Really good economy with it being a diesel. £45 fills my 2.0 litre engine and this does me a week, on average 51 MPG . Fantastic drive, the sport engine gives it an edge to other cars and many times I've left a prestige vehicle in its tracks, 143BHP is plenty of power for this car this size!

Like to Drive

A dream to drive, only bad point would be when it rains as the handling is not great a speed! Easily takes off and leaves other for dust at traffic lights and sticks to the road. Has the sport button to improve driving and you can feel it stick to the road when you enable it. Also has cruise control which is ideal for motorway driving and keeping anyone with speeding issues under control!! Can't fault it at all apart from the wet weather comment already mentioned. <

Faults and Repairs

No faults since the day I have owned it from new, came with the mini TLC pack which gives you 5 years or 50000 miles servicing and parts.

Overview

"Hot hatch!"

Exterior and Interior

First impressions for me really count - so when I first saw the car in the mini red, I fell in love! In particular I really love the alloys as they compliment the whole feel of the car. The interior has a classic design and the dials and gadgets look like the original model of the car.

Performance and Economy

The car is really quick to get going ,especially when I`m late for work or going out to see my friends. The economy is quite good for such a sporty hatch and the stop start mini fuel saver is quite good in town driving once you get used to it.

Like to Drive

AMAZING... I dreamed of having a fast small car and couldn't wait to get my first MINI. The drive is quite sporty and the ride is smooth on the good roads, on smaller roads with bad surfaces it suffers and feels a bit hard. The 'go kart' handling mini advertise is true, especially when going round corners. <

Faults and Repairs

I haven't had any problems with the new car and really love it so far, most of my friends are quite jealous and always ask for a lift in it! :)
