MINI Coupe review

The MINI Coupe has plenty of style and is an exciting car to drive. The Coupe is the first ever of it’s type to be released from the MINI line-up and looks like it could be quite a spectacular vehicle. We take a look as to why we believe the car is set to take the market by storm.

Running costs

You will not find many Coupes’s which are so fun to drive yet so cheap to run. In terms of resale values the Coupe betters most rivals. The C02 emissions are also very low.

Safety

You would expect the MINI Coupe to contain plenty of safety kit considering that it has a lot of power and is quite a small car. The Coupe does not let you down in that respect. The car contains stability control as standard along with an excellent braking system. Front and side airbags help are standard keeping everyone as safe as possible.

Equipment

As standard the MINI Coupe will contain stylish alloy wheels, air conditioning, parking sensors and a CD player and a DAB radio. The best feature about MINI’s is the way that the car is able to be personalised according to the driver.

The drive

Just by looking at the car many would automatically assume that it is a fun vehicle to drive. When the car is cruising, the ride is smooth and refined. When the driver wants to have a bit of fun, the John Cooper Works versions are your best bet as they offer a thrilling drive.
