2012 MINI Cooper Hardtop Review

Fun and motoring have all added up to this – the 2012 MINI Cooper. Innovation in such a small package – the MINI Cooper is powered by a 1.6 Liter 16-valve engine making it fuel efficient and capable. Admire the purr of the MINI Cooper S with a Turbocharged Engine and full electronic throttle. With performance suspension and the ability to go from 0 to 60 in 6.6 seconds the sports-car capabilities are encased by a charming design. Step into the MINI Cooper and take a load off in the 6-way adjustable sport seats with Lounge Leather Upholstery and corresponding Leather Colorline. And for those perfect driving days open the dual pane panoramic Sunroof and crank up the volume on the Harman Kardon Sound System. Offering premium safety features the MINI Cooper is fit to take care of you and your passengers in case of an accident. Featuring Crash Sensors Dynamic Stability Control and 6 airbags with an air curtain system. The 2012 MINI Cooper is not merely a car it’s a revolutionary idea.
