The Mini One: Is it the one for you?

The Mini One is essentially the new Mini. As the second-generation model for one of the most successful vehicles in recent years, the Mini One represents more than just a few modifications. In fact, engineers from BMW are saying that it’s practically a new car. While some components have been retained (like the floor structure and bulkhead), everything else about the Mini One has been either modified substantially or fitted in completely new.

Pros

Many of the improvements on the Mini One boil down to making it a very safe car boasting of both active and passive safety systems. If you’re on the road, it’s like the Mini One is your bodyguard. For its active safety system, the One employs ASC+T (Automatic Stability Control + Traction) to prevent wheels in front from spinning; four disc brakes, ABS, CBC (Cornering Brake Control), and EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) for optimum braking in any situation; and DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) for engine intervention when needed to prevent unstable driving conditions. For the passive safety system, components include brilliant bi-xenon headlights so you can see bends and straights equally clearly; strong tires with emergency running characteristics; six airbags as standard that deploy swiftly to protect from all sides; and a rigid body for all-around protection.

The Mini One is categorized as a small car but thanks to its 50:50 split-folding seats in the rear, it’s able to squeeze in up to four people inside comfortable with room to spare for luggage. It also offers the chance to customize the interiors of your Mini One by making available a range of cloths, cloth/leather, and leather/leatherette upholstery options to choose from, allowing you to pick out whatever will make your Mini One truly your own. Go for the Color Line option and knee rolls and armrests get complementing color treatment to add sass to interiors. All controls, indicators, and switches are also a step up from what the Mini One’s predecessor had.

The Mini One is also more refined that it’s older brother, smoother and very quick, whisking you from point to point in comfort and style. It is satisfying to drive and even a few bumps on the road won’t make it rattle or let out even the faintest squeaks. This car is ideal for you if you’re looking for an upgraded Mini that is more refined, more comfortable, built better, and looks better.

Cons

To apparently address requests from female drivers, the Mini One was designed to be much lighter at the rim. Steering is actually very precise because it’s electrically assisted, but too precise that many sporting drivers will feel like you don’t even have to put much effort into it.

It’s also just available with a petrol engine and output is pegged at a humble 98hp. That can take you to many places but don’t expect the Mini One to be able to keep up with you if you are interested in some off-roading. It can survive cruising on the motorway but you can’t be too optimistic.

Getting to know the Mini One

When the Mini One Minimalism line was unveiled, it came with two special edition versions that focused on not just minimizing fuel consumption but reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions as well. More than just doing their part for the environment, it is important for buyers in Europe to be mindful of carbon dioxide emissions because they can be taxed for what comes out of their vehicles.

The Minimalism line is distinguished by some developments, like the aerodynamically designed wheels that help lessen turbulence, Pepper White highlights that match accents on the mirror caps and grille, and specific badges for vehicles part of the Minimalism line. Top speed for the Minimalism is pegged at 108 mph and it goes from 0 to 60 mph within 13 seconds.

Other members of the Mini One family include the One D and the Cabrio. The One D entered the market in 2009, delivering 90 HP with a top speed of 113 mph and going from 0 to 62 mph within 11.5 seconds. As for the Cabrio, it’s a drop-top version of the One Convertible, fitted with a small scale soft top, electromechanical steering, DSC stability control, and four airbags. The Cabrio has a top speed of 122 mph and can go from 0 to 60 mph in 11.3 seconds.
