2014 Mini Cooper: Still Mini
September 29, 2014
So the 2014 Mini Cooper is a little bit bigger. In the name of crash safety, comfort and stability, it's picked up a few inches, in more than a few places, but there's one area where it feels the Mini is still...mini.
Yeah, you're looking at it. And yeah, this is another trunk post.
A quick glance at that beautiful trunk shot (I'm particularly proud of my trunk shots) shows the standard, small Mini cargo area. But there's an under-floor addition to the trunk, one that Carroll's update didn't touch on, that should make everything better.
That's my camera backpack. Ok, so it might be a little bigger than your JanSport but it still fits in an overhead bin on an airplane. And as you can see, it takes up two-thirds of the trunk's width, most of its depth and prevents the compartment lid from closing. Taking that backpack out, I imagine the trunk's good for a few bags of groceries, but beyond that, you'll be storing stuff in the back seat. Don't worry, it's not like anyone can fit back there anyway.
