Simply the best car of its kind. Build quality is great, driving ability is great, fun factor included. The Mini has been the benchmark by which all other cars have to be judged. BMW really nailed the Mini when they brought the new version out back in 2000, wow time flies when you are having fun.
The range of personalization that is available for the Mini is extensive. The downside of this, is that you can make a car which is already quite expensive, really expensive.
The Mini Cooper is a model choice, it combines a great 122bhp engine with a good level of standard trim. There is a new model going to be launched very soon, it was unveiled back in November 2013. No doubt this will build on the success of the models before.
The interiors on the Mini have a good quality feel to them, the dials and switches are well laid out. The front seats are comfortable. The rear seats are really only useful for children. The seating position of the Mini is very good with good all round visibility with the exception of the convertible with the top up.
The Mini has very good resale values, but be careful to choose options for the car which are not too extreme, if you are concerned with selling the car at its maximum value in the future.
