2012 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

I'm always shocked at how exciting this ride is everytime my foot touches the accelerator. It's the grown-up's go-kart, on steroids. Mario can eat my dust! How did they put such a large herd of horses under that tiny hood? This car literally growls and thunders when I hit the starter. And what's even more shocking is the fuel economy. Still get low 30's even with my happy feet dancing on that gas pedal. And the bucket seats are perfection - I heard BMW has a PhD designing their seats. It has to be perfect in order to keep you in it!

Favorite Features

The acceleration. The handling. The fun. Yeah, there are a bunch of nice features and options I can blah blah blah about. But I tend to forget about all those every time I touch the gas pedal.

Suggested Improvements

Make it less expensive so more people can enjoy this baby! And so I can afford to have two in the garage.
