Your next petrol or diesel may be the last. Site shows in a new series which conventional cars in the affordable price segment are a real recommendation-from fun makers to the discount family carriage. Today: the Mini Cooper.

The mini is just a great car. Of course, in the trendy British, mostly attractively styled women from the urban environment and twitching are sitting on shopping tour, coffee chat in the scene shop or working in the agency across the city. No wonder that the electrical Mini Cooper SE has been enjoying a powerful demand for more than a year despite the manageable range. But there is another way – classic with combustion engines and if you still want to top it, you get into a version with manual circuit. No question, the convenience, switching times and consumption in disciplines does not come to the automated transmission. But it just puts you in a manual manual and the 1.5 liter three-cylinder turbo has not lost its little sonorous rattling sound, but he has steam, the little one. And with only 5.5 liters average consumption.

136 hp are actually enough

The 100 kW / 136 PS / 220 Nm are always enough to be more than quick. From a standing start it goes to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds and the digital display of the speedometer shows 216 km/h when the British front -wheel drive on the A8 motorway has its forward urge to pause. The six -speed circuit is not as crisp and as robust as you would like this from a sporty small car, but the coordination is always good enough to feel a lot of driving pleasure on the winding country road.

The individual driving levels flow through the individual levels and the charged three -cylinder one hangs at an atmospheric and directly on the gas after the gear change. The faster it gets, the less you can reach the standard consumption, the Mini with 5.5 liters per 100 kilometers prospect. The version with nine -frequent double clutch transmission consumes one less than half liter on paper – in reality the bill is probably even more clear in favor of the automatic variant. That should also be the additional price of 1.Be worth 800 euros.

In addition to design and image, the chassis of the 1.2 -ton mini is probably the number three of the purchase reason. It is tight, not hard and the direct coordination of springs, dampers, steering and brakes – all of this fits and makes the Cooper a real mini that is suitable for the driving machine. While the mini one versions are too weak on the chest, the Cooper is a good compromise.

Mini Cooper S is of course more fun

With a similar consumption and significantly sportier performance, the 178 hp Mini Cooper S costs 27 as an ideal occupation.000 euros more than 4000 euros more than the Cooper. One or the other is all too happy to be upgraded in an upgrading of the barren standard equipment. Over the years, the instruments have long been digitized and well networked, the mini has always been well networked. When others still celebrated the digital station search, you could get in here in Foursquare and tweet from the driver’s seat.

As good as the seats are, when it is adjusted it, because the mechanism for the adjustment of the tendency is nothing less than a misconstruction. But the side attitude and leg edition fit and despite the comparatively low seating position, it is well ordered with the clarity. Hard to believe that Mini no longer wants to offer his subsequent new generation with leather seats. The finest of all reference substances and popular equipment detail of most higher-quality mini models is deleted in favor of creative plastic creations. Questionable whether all customers can make friends with it.

The space is manageable in the 3.64 meter long front -wheel drive and only dwarfs can take a seat in the rear, but the Mini is a single car, on which a passenger gets once. On the other hand, because of the manageable loading compartment (211 liters), purchases, jackets or bags can be accommodated on the back seat – the legroom is not an issue anyway. The interior looks great and deceives that it is not the best with ergonomics.

With its new buttons, the leather steering wheel is well in the hand and for a long time you have been able to operate the different menu items on the 8.8 -inch screen not only by touch, but also by language. The central control controller is too hidden and is very low between the seats. The situation is similar with the light island that can only be found above the left knee. Practical, but still not to look at value, is the fold-out head-up display, which is pushed out of the instrument panel at the push of a button. There are better and fancier solutions here. Unlike the Mini Cooper itself, because it remains more unique than ever in his almost classless segment.

Short checklist: Mini Cooper

The Mini Cooper could be their last burner?

  • We didn’t find that so good: Scarce space, partly confused service
  • We thought that was great: Free fun, go-kart feeling, lively three-cylinder-which can also be driven economically
  • That makes the car so extraordinary: The Mini is a driving fun grenade and, with 136 petrol-horsepower, offers a good compromise between fun and efficiency. The mini has a sympathy bonus in any case, no matter how it is driven. The cult factor is also available free of charge – which is also important for the brand’s pharmacy prices.

  1. "Your next petrol or diesel may be"
    not my last! I assume that only new registrations of cars with lifting piston engines … be prohibited. All vehicles that have already been approved can therefore take part in road traffic until they fall apart. That can take years! Let’s take a look at Cuba, many old Amischlitten ran around from the 1960s. My assumption: Shortly before the end of the brand new registrations, car dealerships will register vehicles for daily registrations in order to then sell them as a used car. That would also be something for me, but I hope that my current vehicles will last a long time. Especially my 500!

  2. That will probably be so.
    Especially since the actual ban on new combustion engines has not yet been really clear. Before 2030, this is not to be expected, even if, it is like you write, you will see burners for decades.
