Choosing a car with an excellent safety record is important, but as accidents can happen at any time, it’s worth having a car accident lawyer like Jim Leach in your contacts in case you need assistance. While many car models can have everything in style but lack in substance, the Mini has also become known for its reliability and safety that make it a great choice for those looking for an attractive car that won’t let them down.

What’s surprising about the Mini is how much space there is inside, adding to an already comfortable ride. The car has a gorgeous interior with all of the customizable features you’d expect from a Mini, with a sports-style interior being a must for this cool car.


People who love cars and driving will love the added extras that come with the mini. The large ‘Start’ button brings the car to life with just one touch for an exciting ride each time you set off. There are a range of features to enjoy with the Harman-Kardon sound system which includes 12 high-powered speakers for beautiful sound while driving, as well as some subwoofers in the front. There are a variety of Media Pack configurations available to you too, including specialist Mini Connected apps and the option of a 20gb hard drive for storing your apps and music. The extras will bump up the cost on the Mini Cooper which can start anywhere from $20,000 upwards.

The Mini is a fun and stylish car that is great for younger drivers and those looking for a more on-trend vehicle. While not always the favorite with car enthusiasts, its safety record is something to take note of. Those looking for a slicker, more rugged option might prefer to take a look at the all-new 2017 Countryman which packs a whole other host of features with the same Mini quality.
