I've wanted a Mini ever since I first saw them several years ago. At that time I had 2 small children, so I opted for a large SUV. Now that I have one in college and the other a senior, it was my turn to get a new car. So, I thought now my Mini but I've never driven one and knew nothing about them. I did some research and finally test drove one and absolutely loved it!!! It is surprisingly roomy for a small car. It is well made and is quite zippy. So much fun to drive. I still have some cargo room but I have a unique car that fits me to a tee!! I love it!!!! There are many options for features. I went with 4 wheel drive all weather package. Not into high tech so I went with blue tooth, xm radio, double sun roof, S model no navigation as I don't use it. I'd definitely go with an S model for mini. Test drove a Mini Countryman without the S and it was a little sluggish in the acceleration. There is a feature in my model that allows me to drive in sport mode for extra quick acceleration when I need it. The steering wheel tilts and telescopes, and the seat is highly adjustable. Able to get the fit just right. The only negative is that there isn't much small compartment storage up at the front seat and arm rest isn't very adjustable between the front seats. The Mini has great high end detailing such as the metal gas pedal and metal cooper design on the running boards.

This Vehicle can make the quick trip to the grocery store to pick up dinner for the night or is a great weekend long distance get away driver. It has pick up in town and on the highway, and drives like a little sports SUV. Nearly perfect.

Most Fun Car

by from Greer, SC on July 24, 2017

Fun and sporty car to drive. It handles curves real well. The turbocharged engine is fast and quiet.

This car is so fun to drive! I have always been a lover of the Mini brand and finally a 4-door came out, thank you. It's great for my beach city living but also great for the occasional long commute. Plus my two twin 4 year olds love it!
