What makes Mini Cooper so special?

Posted by Sneed4speed on 3rd Oct 2017

Did you know that Mini was ranked “Highest in Sales Satisfaction Among Mass Market Brands” by J.D. Power from 2010 to 2013? The charm of Mini Cooper has remained untouched since its inception. Let’s have a look at some major features that make Mini Cooper so special.

The hereditary design by Sir Alec Issigonis persists in the current models. The present day models by BMW are somewhat bigger than the original version. But if you check overall shape and proportions, there is no change. This means driving the iconic car with a large size and better features. Now, who doesn’t like that?

Now, coming to the engineering part, you will love how the car is engineered with German technology. This makes it one of the best small racing machines.

Safety-wise, too, the Mini is something worth choosing. It comes with four airbags, along with two head airbags (optional). Other features include anti-lock braking system, disc brakes all round, and automatic stability control plus traction (additional).

A car driver enjoys go-kart style handling and a low center of gravity. This is possible as the wheels of Mini are pushed out from every corner. A multi-link rear suspension further enhances the driving experience, which is rarely found in small cars. Even if the road is bumpy, the Mini's rear wheels stay in contact with the road.
