So, the thing about a Mini and it’s probably the biggest thing about a Mini, is that it just looks so good. This colour in particular, the British Racing Green, is the colour du jour. It’s still in the classic mini shape, even if it has grown a good few inches along the years, and you really do feel like you’re in a classic car. You’re getting the best of both worlds - classic shape with a new engine from the same company who makes BMW. How can you go wrong?
Everything from the old-school stop/start button to the circular frame around the multimedia screen that lights up, to the old-school speedo around the leather steering wheel has been well thought out and designed beautifully.
The Mini Cooper has Apple Carplay and Android Auto that you connect with via Bluetooth. The circular frame around the touchscreen makes things feel extra futuristic and it’s fun to use. This technology syncs your phone with the screen so you can use maps to navigate and play music via whatever streaming app you use. You can also make calls and send text using voice control.
Plus the speakers are great, turn the volume up on your favourite songs.
