Just Auto Analyzes The MINI


United Kingdom's just auto offers an analysis of the MINI Cooper S. Among its analyses are these comments:
German cars used to be fantastically over-engineered and the Mini is the latest example of those days returning: the complicated hinges of the upper glovebox are a delight, even if the plastic struts are a touch on the flimsy side. To open, press on the panel ahead of you and it comes forward, then tilts upwards, revealing a space that will just about take a small bottle of water. It needs to be lined with a rubber matt, though. Really, it’s just a covering for some dead space where the steering wheel goes on LHD cars. Still, it’s good to see that BMW engineers are being allowed to design surprise and delight features, even on the Group’s cheapest models.
