Come On, Not A Bad Thing To Say About It — Doing 50000+ miles a year, not the natural choice, but handles like a go-kart and with a few extras it makes it quite civilised. Cruise control is the best feature :-)

Pros: Handling

Cons: Rear seats are cramped

A Smal Car With Lots Of Fun Inside — This car would seem to be cramped however the Mini Cooper offers plenty of room even with the top up. Plus the tight suspension with the whining supercharger makes this car a pleasant performer!

Pros: The supercharger whine when going through the gear and also the tight suspension. You also gotta love the retro interior.

Cons: None.

Great City Car... — This MINI is perfect for tight parking spaces and zipping around the city...as long as there are no potholes. The engine pulls this car around nicely (mit JCW CAI) and handles the turns with confidence, just don't hit any potholes or you will lose a filling!

Pros: Handling, Size (parkability), Styling (cute / retro)

Cons: Ride

Sexy, Funky, Classy And Fun To Drive! — A great fun car that is soooooooo special to drive in the sun ((or night)) with the roof down. Drives like a go-cart and ever so nimble...point it where you want to go and it zips you there. Funky - body coloured interior is a must!!! So are heated seats!

Pros: Drop top, sun roof function, interior, image.

Cons: Rubbish for large shopping trips

Delivers On Go-kart Live Drive Experience — Fun and fast, drives like a go cart and has lots of room for the driver and front passenger. The extra horsepower was really a lot of fun to use in this car. I just love the design of the MINI, I drove one with racing stripes and normally I don't like racing stripes at all but they seemed to fit on the Mini Cooper S.

Pros: Fun, fun, fun to drive. Go-Kart experience is lots of fun

Cons: not reliable, reverse is next to first gear which is slightly confusing, not known for reliability (but BMW has a good warranty)

My Speed Fix For Now. — Good to cruise around in. Pretty decent performance for a car with less than 200 supercharged horsepower.

Pros: Performance.

Cons: Small size.

It Shouldn't Be Legal To Have This Much Fun Driving A Car. — It's a go-cart on steroids. Lots of fun. You can really customize different aspects of the car.

Pros: Has more cargo space than anyone realizes.

Cons: Dealership is far away

The Most Fun Car To Drive........period! — Ever wanted to drive a luxurious go-cart with airbags? this is it! Although I'd imagine the 'S' model would be much faster and have better acceleration, the base mini is a bit dull. HOWEVER, it totally doesn't matter. You know those hair-pin turns on the on-ramps to get on a highway? most cars you'd have to slow down to handle the turn, not the MINI, with this car you can accelerate through it without any loss of control. The car is low to the ground and has a wide stance, allowing for the best handling of any car in it's class. The car is also quite roomy despise its name. 2 grown adults in the front and two smaller adults or children in the back could easily find this car suitable for carpooling. Also very safe and secure, and solid, it feels like a tank. I can't wait to drive the 'S' model!

Pros: Great handling, style, efficiency, comfort, and overall fun to drive

Cons: acceleration is a bit lacking, and at high speeds the car seems to feel limited. This is only the base-model's experience however, and I'm sure the 'S' model would be more suitable.

We bought a 2017 Mini Cooper S. We needed to find a smaller light weight coupe to pull behind a class B RV. Price, size, power, equipment of the S model is we think? A good fit! Read More
