  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    I used to own a Mini One new shape before this, and honestly from saying I would never buy anything but a Mini, this car has changed my mind. Its planted and a lot more comfortable than the mini on motorway's not as bouncy seats are comfy with lots of support. Really good around town with the stop start. its actually surprisingly quick as well, I didn't expect much from the little engine but I genuinely get a surprise most of the time at how good it is in traffic and needing to make a quick dash through gaps!

    What's it like to park?

    Easy easy easy! the sensors that are standard on my car are great show you how far away and makes the nosies's.

    This car is so efficient even with my Slightly/Very Heavy right foot! I'm averaging around 50 mpg with a combination of both city, town, motor way and country driving as my route to work actually manages to take all of the above.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The reversing sensor actually comes up with a screen to show how far away the car is behind you, also plays music through the bluetooth so no need for wires!
