I have today purchased this car and have only taken it for a test drive and was really impressed with the handling.
I will write more when I pick it up next week.
Considering the size of the car it's very practical for space. I am 6ft tall and can drive it very well without any discomfort.
With regards to reliabilty it's to early to speak about , will inform you later on because I've only had the car a week.
I find this car very pleasing to drive and own. It is very quiet and smooth also appears to be well put together. There are no rattles, electrical problems or any thing else so far, unlike the last two new Minis I owned.
My wife has owned one from new for a year now - a 1.2 Eleganza, with optional fifth seatbelt and thus a bench rear seat. We use it for mainly town work, but have taken it out on 10-plus mile day trips.
Compared with our old Cinquento Sporting, it is a revelation. Five doors make it very useful; it is spacious, rattle-free to date and very well equipped (we like the extra power steering for parking!)
The boot is big enough for a week's shopping, and there's plenty of space and headroom for four adults. Fuel consumption was not marvellous, but now it has loosened up we can get 50mpg on a long rip. The only drawbacks are that fuel tank is small, and the car runs out of oomph at 60mph if you ned to accelerate up a motorway incline.
Overall, though, we are very pleased and may get a top-spec diesel one next time.
