Reasons to Enjoy the New Mini Cooper

Following the reintroduction in the Mini last 2001 by BMW, the classic vehicle has undergone transformations that boggle the minds of Mini fans while still maintaining its status being a cult icon - the enjoyment evoked by the iconic front grille and headlamps is unchanged but under the hood, the newly revamped Mini is packing a much greater punch with 200 horsepower replacing the 1960s original 34 horsepower engine in the first Mini Cooper.

Running out of energy spot one on sight, in large part due to the "cutest car ever" status. Its classification as being a compact doesn't apparently support the same vomit-inducing powers as the Toyota Prius.

The "new" Mini - Not really a Style

However, this car is not just a fairly face - the German brand BMW has ensured the tiny little vehicle can hold its in its original arena as a racing car. They marketed the manufacturer "new" Mini Cooper like a compact car that drives similar to a go-kart. Plus they weren't messing around - the S model is really a car that driving enthusiasts and road devils would be proud to own in their "cars that go zoom" arsenal.

If you do not own or have usage of a Mini, some car clubs offer non-owners the chance to ride along with them during their driving events so they can see first-hand the way the car handles and talk all about the fun-size road monster.

This vehicle's following is most likely one of the most quirky and fascinating groups out there - they're not shy about proclaiming their passion for small terror plus some have taken it as being far as compiling lists of the favorite aspects of the Mini Cooper!

Reason Number 1: Face it - cuteness is, and forever will be, the deciding factor. The Mini is cute without appearing like a chick car. Sure, the female fan base exists too - but men don't look less manly driving on this teeny-tiny compact. If cars might be classified as urbane and metrosexual (ie looks good but is straight) then the Mini Cooper would win hands down.

Over a side note, the car's "cute" facade is hiding some powerful surprises. The famous "happy" grille is topped by the hood scoop that inhales refreshing air for that hyped-up engine. If you feel it lacks junk inside the trunk - the twin exhaust pipes would prove you wrong. And forget about the need to purchase aftermarket wheels - the 17-inch alloy tires are really integrated in the Mini's design that handling the Mini Cooper at breakneck speeds and harrowing hairpin curves has not been very easy!

Reason # 2: The Mini Cooper is beautiful inside and out! Most cars have a dashboard having a speedometer, mileage and fuel gauge driving, leaving the guts dashboard free for that GPS, A/C controls and entertainment system. The Mini Cooper, alternatively, comes with a huge (some would say oversized) centrally-located circular speedometer (by incorporating designs with a GPS from the center).

And speak about owner customization! The Mini Cooper actually has mood lighting installed that one could activate and modify with the push of the mouse button. Ignore two-tone interiors and seat covers - you'll have everything with all the Mini, needless to say, though the issues that distinguish it from others - that's what makes all the Mini Cooper one of the best ways for the vehicle owner trying to find something unique and fun.
