Sometimes, seeing cars with chubby and vintage design but with the right amount of compact factor, like the MINI Cooper SHardtop4-Door here, can transport you in a countryside reverie. Peaceful drives with the familiar sound of crunching underneath as you consume the stretch of the country roads. Wouldn’t that be a nice contrast against the speed and hustle-bustle of the city roads and highways? If you can spend $33, 200 (price as tested) of your bucks, MINI Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door can be a good investment provided that you don’t use it for racing.
MNI Cooper S 4-Door sports the vintage look of cars we can usually find in old films. While we obviously can’t depict it as something sleek and elegant, it is classy in its own way. As dubbed, it has four doors but you can find the rear one a bit tiny to suit big people.
When they say MINI they mean almost every bit of the word. Spacing inside can cramp a big bulk of a man but baggage at the rear can have the time of their lives, sitting prettily without getting squeezed as long as they’re not too many. Positioned right in the center console are conventional keys but what you can really love here is the round screen where you can select the streams of your MP3 Player list and navigation clues.
