2008 MINI Cooper Hardtop Review

If you’re going to motor motor in a strange and wonderful alchemy of steel aluminum graphite dreams and sweat. Motor in something built by designers who used paper and pencil instead of computers. By designers who listened to their hearts not focus groups. Motor in a machine that’s more than a pretty face. Every MINI is small but packed with as many features as some cars costing three times as much. The MINI gets rolling with either a 118 Horse Power 4 cylinder that earns an out of this world 40 miles per gallon and 528 miles on one tank of gas. And the MINI S which growls with a 16 valve 1.6L Turbocharged 172 Horse Power performance Beast. Here’s a tidbit almost every MINI that rolls off the line is unique. Built specifically for the individual anxiously waiting on the other side. Fact- Minis are among the shortest cars in the U.S. That spells parallel parking utopia. Proportionately speaking a Mini is also one of the Widest cars which results in superior handling and safety. The MINI is cradled in safety by Six total front and side airbags come standard and ready to engage if needed. The MINI has smart airbags that constantly monitor several conditions to be at the ready. Soon you’ll understand why the 2008 MINI is in a class of one.
