2010 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)


This is not your typical "B" segment mini-car (like the Honda Fit, Yaris HB, Scion xA, all of which I've owned). The NVH (noise-vibration-harshness) levels are ultra low for this class. This is a QUIET, SMOOTH car. Very high levels of front seat comfort. Base suspension and stock tires are surprisingly good - I have no plans to make changes, which is unlike me. Superb gas mileage - an indicated 35.4 mpg on my mostly freeway driving in regulare (non-sport) mode. Also a bargain, if you don't add "extras," and take into account the fine stock sound system and detailed on-board computer.

Best Features

LED speed reading below the tachometer. Temperature, miles to empty, mpg, average speed, trip odo, service reminder all in onboard computer. Excellent stock sound system. Aux jack. Excellent standard cruise control and steering wheel audio controls. "Motoring!"

Worst Features

Remember you can lock in a promotional interest rate/bonus when you order - so ordering is NOT discouraged. Should include floormats (only $85 and dealer threw them in, fortunately). Need to make "gap" between body panel and gas tank cover a little "tighter."
