2013 Mini Convertible Owners Manual – If you’re searching for the very best mixture of performance, hatchback functionality and design, in a zippy, city-pleasant small-car package, the MINI Cooper lineup basically has the marketplace cornered–and that’s not at all a very bad thing.
This ranges from the pint-measured Cooper hatchback and convertible to the carefully related Clubman and today, the Coupe and Roadster also, MINI’s range nevertheless packs a lot of individuality. That holds real regardless of whether you choose the base model, the turbocharged S, or the most hostile, performance-focused John Cooper Works (JCW) model.
A couple of if any cars on the market do contemporary-traditional styling that can match the Mini Cooper, and the entire family of retro-styled small cars it’s spawned each have their own personal special appeal. The large-eyed, relatively smiling front-end, the short nasal area, the low hood, and the stylish cover-about beltline, with blacked-out pillars and a ‘floating’ roof, are all exclusive design elements that will make this modern MINI a standout.
Within, the unique, sometimes funky design is undeniably racy, even though its retro rocker changes feel fairly at the cost of functionality (so may possibly the somewhat gimmicky, dish-size speedometer in the center of the dash), and there’s an element of busyness in the details, it’s cohesive appear, and the shade options released last year spruced it.
MINI Coupe models (and the MINI Roadster) have fundamentally the same product packaging from the entrance seats in advance, but with their reduce roofline (MINI proudly calls the roof structure a ‘helmet’) there’s significantly less useful headroom; there’s no rear seat within these models either–just a tiny cargo rack. MINI Clubman models, on the contrary, provide a bit more headroom in back again, producing a somewhat much more spacious 4-seater, with a trendy center-opening up, side-hinged hatch set up.
