Mini One

While the last of the old Minis were must-have fashion items, the auto versions had a big image problem.

The MINI One Convertible’s shortfalls – lack of pace, rear space and respect for your beautifully sculpted hair – make it easier to criticise than recommend.

Now watch some MINI Convertible videos.

Unlike the old MINI One . the new One is a 1.4 rather than a 1.6. So you can’t simply programme out the throttle restrictor to get Cooper performance from it. You have to settle for the 95PS it comes with.

Mini One review

Here’s the thing. The first car I ever owned was a Mini. I bought it for just fifty bucks all of 18 years ago. THAT is a cheap Mini.

MINI One from £12,730

Despite BMW ‘s counter-PR, Dave Saddington’s design came out of Longbridge rather than Munich. The MINI has been a fantastic sales success, although its unique platform means profitability has suffered.

Review of MINI ONE (click here for pricing, standard specification, options etc.)

Advantages: Great looks, image and handling

Disadvantages: Poor space and low discounts.

The basic Mini One has a drag coefficient of 0.38, and on the wide-tyred Cooper S, it is more like 0.39. Despite its larger wheels and tyres, the JCW GP has a significantly better Cd of 0.348, roughly a 10 per cent improvement.

In South Africa, we have only had the Cooper and Cooper S versions, BMW positioning the first generation range further upmarket than the segment occupied overseas by the ordinary Mini One . the model that has made the main running in the UK.

6-litre engine from the MINI One ‘s modest 140 Nm to 210 Nm, with acceleration to match. And there are a lot more horses to play with.

The rollout of a new generation of Minis continues at this year’s Geneva Auto Salon with two new Euro-only models, the Mini One and Mini Cooper D. The former uses a teensy, 1.

The MINI One provides best value for money but the Cooper and supercharged Cooper S offer an extra slug of power. Servicing is cheap and it holds its value better than almost anything else.

The Mini One . with 90 hp, is only offered in Europe, while the Mini Cooper. boasting 115 hp and the soon-to-arrive Cooper S (supercharged) with a more respectable 165 hp, will both be available for North America.

But here the customer faces a choice. Two variants are available for the Mini One and the Mini Cooper. a twin-pipe exhaust system with one oval tailpipe in right/left combination, or a single oval tailpipe design.

A list of options ranges from contoured sport seats, leather, a navigation system, heated seats and run-flat tires to etcetera, etcetera. Making a Mini one ‘s own is part of the fun and there’s a raft of opportunities.

this thing in the metal and take a spin round town, you are bound to fall in love with it, and will think hard not to spend the extra couple of grand for this Smart ForTwo, Citroen C1. Mitsubishi i Car, Peugeot 1007. Fiat 500. VW Beetle and Mini One .

By the way, in the United Kingdom, BMW also sells a lesser-equipped MINI One model and it recently revealed plans to launch a 1.4-litre diesel engine version next year, probably just for European markets.
