2015 Mini Hardtop is an ideal choice for people looking for customization. The vehicle is uniquely designed, zippy runabout, which offers complete value for money. To start with the customization, Mini Hardtop is available in two-door and four-door models. One of the best things about this car is that features like automatic climate control, heated mirrors, etc come as a standard. Some other highlights of this year’s Mini Hardtop are the new turbocharged engine, bigger dimensions, upgraded interior and an improved transmission (automatic). What makes 2015 Mini Hardtop a different story is the fact that company has put in a lot of effort to improve the cargo space while keeping intact all the fun features. Enough talk! Let’s get down to details and discover why this vehicle is kind of special…
Both the two-door and four-door Mini hardtops are available in different trim levels with 15-inch alloys, adjustable driving modes, refrigerated glove box, trip counter, color adjustable lightning, adjustable front seats, cruise control, automatic headlights, multifunction steering, Bluetooth connectivity with a 6-speaker sound system and hosts of other features are standard. And if you are willing to spend a few more bucks features like bigger alloys, Xenon and LED headlights, sunroof, navigation system, etc can be made available as well.
Moving on to the performance and power, the 2015 Mini Hardtop is fitted with a 1.5-liter, turbocharged, a three-cylinder engine which can produce a power of 134 hp coupled with 162 lb-ft of torque. Transmission is 6-speed manual with features like hill-start-assist and rev-matching. The choice of an automatic transmission is available as optional. The Mini Hardtop can go from a standstill position to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds, which is actually pretty impressive considering all the basic features. Talking about the fuel economy, it is 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg cruising on the highways with automatic transmission. The manual transmission reflects slightly better mileage, giving 29 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highways. In higher trim levels more powerful, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine is available that produces 189 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque.
The 2015 Mini Hardtop has some impressive safety features too. Disc brakes, traction and stability control, lots of airbags, etc all come as standard. However, rear view camera and parking sensors come as optional features. In official safety test, the vehicle got 4 out of 5 stars (which are not bad) and Highway Authorities ranked this car as “good” in the crash test. The car only needs 114 feet to come to a standstill from 60 mph – these again are pretty nice numbers, especially when you compare then with other cars from the same league.
The early testers have hardly anything to complain about the car. It offers great control and stability no matter what the terrain is. Other than that, the 2015 Mini Hardtop is equipped with all the latest features, so there is hardly anything the company has missed.
