I have been very impressed with my 2010 Mini.I have driven 4 cylinder cars in the past for fuel economy and am very pleasantly surprised with the power and immediate pick up of the Mini.It is the regular Mini Cooper and goes from zero to whatever in a nanosecond.I have friends that have had their Mini's for 6 and 7 years and and love them.I hope mine lasts as long or longer.
I really like the interior and exterior styling.It is very sleek and the interior space in the front seat is definitely large enough for a tall person with a big build.I am used to leather heated seats with lumbar supports and though my Mini isn't leather the regular heated seat is as comfortable.
I had an arm rest installed at the dealership and find it to be somewhat lower than is comfortable for my arm.Other than that overall I am very pleased with my choice.
