MINIs used to be considered, well, on the small side. And why wouldn’t they be? With a name like MINI and a car that can fit into even some of the smallest-looking parallel parking spaces, it’s definitely got the compact thing down to an art.
But even these days the MINI isn’t quite this tiny little car that’s hard to squash into. Visit MINI West Palm Beach and you’ll quickly realize that maybe the MINI you thought you knew isn’t really all that mini at all. However, there are actual stats to back up that idea. Over the last few generations, MINI has grown: 4.5 inches have been added in terms of length, it’s 1 inch taller, and 1.5 inches wider. The nose and wheelbase are longer, the grille is bigger, and the weight of the MINI has increased as well.
Yet at the same time, whether you’re looking at a used MINI or seeking out a MINI lease, you’ll quickly realize that many of the cars you come across have plenty of power under those pretty little hoods. The 2016 MINI Cooper S convertible that is currently the talk of the town has a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine with 189 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Driving it is fantastic, with the power that it offers and the ability it has to grip around tight corners that you decide to throw it into. And don’t forget to ask about the Sport mode.
MINI West Palm Beach features the new 2016 MINI Convertible as well as many more. Looking for a used MINI to save a little money? No problem. Each MINI is given a thorough run-through to ensure it’s like new and waiting for you. Looking to take the MINI lease option instead? Braman MINI can take care of that, too. MINI isn’t so mini anymore, but it’s still an excellent choice and the perfect summertime ride.
Vroom, vroom, baby.
