Topsixth Mini Cooper vs Porsche 911 Carrera S
The Mini is a small car that was made by the British Motor Corporation
(BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a
British icon of the 1960s, and its space-saving front-wheel-drive layout
(that allowed 80% of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for
passengers and luggage) influenced a generation of car-makers. The vehicle
is in some ways considered the British equivalent to its German
contemporary, the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in
North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car
of the 20th Century, behind the Ford Model T.
This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis.
It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the
Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in
Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy
(Innocenti), Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and Yugoslavia. The
Mini Mark I had three major UK updates: the Mark II, the Clubman and the
Mark III. Within these was a series of variations including an estate car,
a pickup truck, a van and the Mini Moke—a jeep-like buggy. The Mini
Cooper and Cooper "S" were sportier versions that were successful as rally
cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967,
although in 1966 the Mini was disqualified after the finish, along with six
other British entrants, which included the first four cars to finish, under
a questionable ruling that the cars had used an illegal combination of
headlamps and spotlights. Initially Minis were marketed under the Austin
and Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini Minor, until Mini
became a marque in its own right in 1969The Mini was again marketed under
the Austin name in the 1980s.
Classic 1960"s Rally Mini Cooper S
Paddy Hopkirk (GB), Timo Mäkinen (FI) and Rauno Aaltonen (FI) made history
with their Rally Monte Carlo victories in 1964, 1965 and 1967. The trio
laid the foundation for the long tradition of the MINI brand in
international motorsport. The Mini Cooper S was the car to beat in the

Although the third generation Mini Cooper hatchback looks like a mild
refresh of the previous two generations, it is in fact an all-new vehicle.
The third generation brings a body that is 4 inches longer, almost 2 inches
wider and a hair taller than the 2012 MINI Cooper. The result is a more
stable platform with a smoother ride. Of course the ever-growing dimensions
mean you won't be able to squeeze your MINI in as many spots, but you'll be
more comfortable on the journey.
Rather than continuing the use of a unique platform, the 2015 MINI shares
much of its structure with the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer (218i and 225i)
which adds an unexpected amount of refinement to the tiny hatch.
Under the hood we no longer find the PSA Citroën four-cylinder engines,
BMW has refocused their small car strategy and pulled everything in house
with a new line of modular engines. The base 1.5L 3-Cylinder engine is one
of only four three-cylinder mills sold in America in 2014. Shared with the
European 225i and the hybrid-electric BMW i8, the 3-pot is actually faster than the outgoing 1.6L
four-cylinder base engine. S models get a related 2.0L 4-cylinder engine
from the same modular family. Anyone hope BMW makes a 2.5L 5-cylinder, or
is that just me?
With this generation MINI has further cemented their position as the only
premium subcompact in America. The interior has been totally redesigned
with higher quality materials (and the exact same design theme as before),
new seats and the latest version of BMW's iDrive navigation and
infotainment system dubbed MINI Connected.
Without any other premium sub-compacts on our shores, comparisons are
tricky. The MINI doesn't really compete with the Kia Rio, Kia Soul, Mazda2,
Ford Fiesta or any other vehicles in the same size class. Instead the MINI
continues to be a cheeky and stylish alternative to the CLA250, Audi A3,
Volvo S60, and even BMW's own 320i.
