Advantages: looks great,, very reliable
Disadvantages: Not great if you are always having passengers
I do not profess to be a car expert so apologies for those looking for a technical review. However, I can tell you about my experiences with the mini and how I have found it to drive.
Firstly it looks fantastic. I had mine new as a company car in 2008, so I have had it for a year and a half. I opted for the British Racing Green, a traditional classic colour. The only qualms is the dashboard. I personally hate the big speedometer but it is possible to change settings so there is also a digital speedometer on the dashboard.
Performance - so far my mini has been completely reliable. I have had not problems and have already driven nearly 30,000 miles. The engine is 1.4 litre, which is very nippy when you are in the car on your own. However, as soon as there is a passenger |particularly someone in the back it loses a lot of power. The boot is actually bigger than I expected and the seats can be pushed down for more room.
Summary: Looks great - good performance
