Basics Of The 2012 MINI Cooper

The MINI Cooper is more than just a fun drive, it also has its safety and dependability and also the look and charm. This car was launched in the market a decade ago and has remained popular since then. Not only do you get the charm of this vehicle, the driving experience is unmatched. To enhance the sporty performance of the car, one does not need to step up, for its lightweight coupled with a 121 horsepower inline 4 proves to be enough. The small size is another advantage that the MINI Cooper offers. The great thing about this is that you can park it wherever you want to and it will even fit down streets where most drivers would not dare to go.

One of the great things about the 2012 MINI Cooper is that there are 2 door hatchback and body styles that you can easily change. Also, the 2012 model is given out in 3 different trims; the MINI Cooper S, the basic MINI and the John Cooper Works model. The Cooper S have several additions such as the 16 inch wheels on the hatchback, sport seats, fog lamps and hood stripes. You can also get some optional features such as; automatic climate control, keyless ignition and different style headlights.

The above mentioned MINI Cooper is also a turbocharged version of the basic which gives off 181 horsepower and roughly 177 pounds of torque. Although the Cooper S is equipped and installed with great features promising a performance of a superior level, it also has a few major drawbacks. The ride in a Cooper is firm that may appear to be too stiff for some people riding in it. Another thing that many won’t like is that the passengers in the backseat will not have a lot of legroom. However a four seat capacity is better found with four door and not two door cars.

Keeping the additional features in mind, the Cooper S is slightly expensive as compared to MINI Coopers. The MINI Cooper S will run you around $23,000 while the basic MINI will only cost you $19,000.
