Mini Cooper Convertible Review

Having just received this outstanding Mini Cooper from it’s one local previous Lady owner it seems only fitting to write a Motoring review on this amazing convertible super compact car having enjoyed driving a few miles in preparation for it’s new owner.

Driving this vehicle is where the Mini convertible really scores in this competitive hot hatch market, simply because it is very nearly as good as the Coupe. Surprisingly so, in fact. It bounds into a corner with the kind of enthusiasm you get from small, yappy dogs when they go for the family guinea pig, or a teenage girl who’s just seen a new Top Shop across the road. The steering is nicely weighted, the suspension firm but well damped, making the Cooper a cracking hot hatch and fun to drive particularly with the roof down in the Summer.

The fun of owning a MINI continues to the retro-inspired interior with its enormous central instruments and toggle switches. reverse parking sensors fitted as extra at the Mini factory and being the Cooper and not the Cooper S you get all the same driving thrills whilst saving your pocket in running and maintenance costs (e.g.) insurance group 23 not 32 not to mention the fuel saving, see stats on this superb Mini below.
