Why did you choose this car?
It is a MINI and feels like it i.e. sporty, solid, well built and a total hoot to drive. Feels far faster and more fun than the 228bhp MINI JCW Clubman we swapped it for! And it’s saving us a fortune in comparison, cheaper insurance and 190 mpg at our current electricity price.

 

Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car?

  • Fast
  • Nippy and fun
  • Superbly well built
  • Just makes me smile every time I drive it.

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car?

  • Small boot because it’s an L1 (we got a cancelled order )
  • The range is a bit limited at times.

 

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
