About the Mini Cooper
The Mini is symbolic around the world, and that’s a fact. No matter who you talk to, they know what a Mini is, heck if you talk to a baby they know what it is as it revolutionised the automotive industry as we know it. Since the 50’s, the mini has continued to be a preferred hatchback by many, and there is no sign of stopping anytime soon.
It also gained huge popularity around the world thanks to Mr. Bean. By making the world laugh uncontrollably for generations while driving around in a bright green Mini Cooper, occasionally with an armchair strapped on top.
This is where the legend began. Available in many guises including the iconic two-door hatchback, when it first came out features were extremely basic. Manual windows, manual accessories, cloth seats and room four around four people, these cars got the world moving.
Over the years additional features were introduced around the world including a cassette player, air conditioning and a soft roll back roof.
Every single model is equipped with a four four-speed manual gearbox before the introduction of the five-speed automatic and manual boxes were introduced. Four-cylinder power the front wheels of these subcompact machines with various displacements on offer.
Throughout the years, their shape didn’t change much which small tweaks here and there every few years or so. Body styles include a four-wheel jeep, pickup, panel van and wagon.
