MINI Cooper S First Drive

The new MINI is longer and less Mini car. It has grown considerably in size thereby adapting to a larger number of potential customers demanding space. As usual in this car teachers design features allow anyone to identify externally as a Mini. The car is bigger with a usable rear seats and a trunk that although small is much more profitable than the last. As usual in the Mini range is one of the most expensive cars in its class.

Launches a new generation of 3-cylinder engines with turbo with reducing consumption and emissions reserving the mechanical four-cylinder for the sportiest versions Cooper SD Cooper S and John Cooper Works newly introduced which will be released in late 2015. also debuts high technology equipment load and of course maintaining the ability to customize feature Mini.En this time we tried the MINI Cooper S a real whim powered by a 192 hp turbo so far the most powerful version of marketed range.

Exterior Design

Obvious that BMW has decided to preserve the figure of MINI much as possible to the extent that is necessary to be somewhat understood to recognize at a glance what generation it is ... which is saying a lot considering it is 3 generations over 14 years.

Its dimensions have grown by 100 mm long 30 mm wide and only 7mm in height (total 3850 mm long x 1727 wide and 1414 high) highlighting the longer wheelbase. The proportions have remained surprisingly well and we must be very observant to notice details like taillights are enoooormes like mirrors. There is also a 5-door MINI recently tried.

With such a familiar image is not much to tell highlighting positively headlamp with a hoop daylight very attractive design and the possibility of equipping FULL LED lighting with power and admirable performance. This lighting makes the car easily recognizable at night with a slight nod to the "angel eyes" typical of BMW. The daylights are very powerful you visible even in bright sunlight contributing to the design of the car. The license plate lights and tail lights also feature LED increasing the sense of quality.

The front looks the typical hexagonal grille with chrome frame and the letter "S" in red. A nice little touch is that the traditional air intake on the hood characteristic MINI Cooper and Cooper S JCW this time is more false than the small Nicholas but like this gives the trick and looks good. Mechanically the car can do without this fresh air but not aesthetically so it was decided to install "glue".

The back is very symmetrical with two central exhaust outlets and two rear fog lights. Provides feeling of strength and being "more drive" without losing its traditional sportsmanship. By the way this dual exhaust sounds great ... A glance at the sideline of the car confirms the continuity pattern design although in this case we can choose many different tires to no less than 18 inches.

Interior design

Inside the MINI Cooper S we find considerably more space than the previous generation especially in the front seats and in the trunk. Access to the rear seats remains complicated but once seated obviously has gained ground to the point that a person of my height (1.80 m) can travel without much problem. Moreover the headrests are adjustable fine (not like other cars in the rear seats are always low) and as it is only approved for four seats there will be problems in width.

Despite the broader the car remains a "claustrophobic" tad because the seat is very low and therefore the remaining elements (door panels and upper dashboard) are very high favoring the feeling of boxing. The upholstery black roof contributes to the sporty atmosphere but remains light and increases the already named claustrophobia.

The seats also favor "sandwiched" in the driving seat with a soft and a hard ridges that hold the body well. These seats are a great ally when fighting in areas of curves nor much fatigued body on long highway trips so I look outstanding. Some of my colleagues say that highlight both can be somewhat narrow although I'm not exactly a featherweight and I feel that I lack space. In general all the driving position seems very good and suitable for car design and sporting aspirations.

Overall the interior conveys feeling very good both visually and to the touch. All materials fit well and although some rustling is heard I achaqueo more to the table type suspension assembly to own car.

Finally the MINI sports a slightly more logical arrangement of all controls although still too dispersed and location. They are design quirks such as the starting lever and illuminated stop a suggestive Variable red. This lever framed in metal fighter plane "go-baby-go" style lights and gradually turns off when we got to the car asking you to please put up the engine.

You can wear the famous BMW iDrive rotary knob (baptized here as "Mini Controller") to manage the browser and all the features available in the spectacular display of 8.8 "color high resolution. Standard carries a lot simpler than 6.5 inches I have not had chance to try.

trunk

The trunk of the MINI has gone from ridiculous to just small. The increase in volume is very noticeable though still somewhat lacking for the overall size of the car. Are 211 liters by folding down the rear seat expandable parts. It also has a dual background quite useful to allow better use of the limited space of the car. In our test unit had a first aid kit triangles fire extinguisher and still have room for more stuff like hide ordendador laptop briefcase etc.

From culaquier form still has the smallest trunk that any car of this size as the Audi A1 and the Peugeot 208. Tomorrow and discuss the equipment price and of course how it behaves how about driving and engine performance and change in terms of performance and consumption.
