months into our tenure of the One and things are going great In fact, the feisty three-door is on the way to impressing the entire Auto staff – despite the named velvet red colour which looks more chocolate brown to us.

However, there will be dissenters in the ranks and in this I’m afraid to say I’m one of Don’t get me wrong, I love every aspect of the car – been looking forward to behind the wheel since I saw the new MINI two years ago. And I alone.

For the first time in my wife showed an interest in a vehicle. My three-year-old son also impressed as he spotted the shiny to twiddle. Sadly, he’s the reason I’m having with the MINI.

Our road test team has criticised the car’s small cabin, and I realised why when I had to my family for a weekend away. My son loves the MINI, but slotted in a seat behind my six-foot he spent most of the time his legs akimbo either of my chair. Even swapping him to the side didn’t solve the completely, because we still had to space for a pushchair.

Our buggy would not fit inside the so we ended up jamming it in the footwell the front and rear seats.

In it’s just as well it go in the load bay – that have meant removing the fitted luggage set we specified for our OK, it was expensive at £365, but it maximises little boot space the has. And besides, the space will only affect with young children. I’m on my own in the car, I have a of a time.

I fit neatly in the cabin, thanks to a seat and steering wheel, and the view ahead through the windscreen. I’m surprised how and supportive the driver’s chair is, on long journeys, and never of flicking the toggle switches on the console.

The One reminds me of an original – I find myself it in third gear because it just right. Performance is modest, but around town no is faster. You don’t even the extra power of the Cooper or S. And people still turn and – the MINI shows no of losing its street cred.

After 7,000 miles, no hint of anything going and we’d expect no less of a car by BMW. In fact, a light has popped on to remind me that a is due in 900 miles. As with many modern cars, the MINI not have set service intervals, but for itself when it’s to visit a dealership.

When the car goes in, we will have the noisy electric system checked out. All new whine when you turn the but ours seems unusually

From my experience, the MINI is as a family’s only car. despite the limitations caused by its the One makes a superb second But what am I saying?

I like motor so much that simply might have to put up life in the back.
