The first design model of the current Mini Generation is shown in the form of the Mini Seven. The iconic small car is available as a three- and five-door model, the latter being a full 72 mm longer and thus leaving the classic concept behind. As a Seven, the Mini is supposed to reflect the premium character that was already born into his cradle due to his BMW roots. In addition there is an individual style, exclusive design elements inside and outside and a decent equipment.
As a special Mini Seven model, the cult car cannot and does not want to hide its British origins in the first place, but celebrates the traditional vehicle concept, whose name comes from the Austin Seven from 1959. Unlike this, the current mini-generation offers plenty of steam, which comes about through turbocharging. The two diesels produce either 116 or 170 PS, while the two petrol engines generate 136 and 192 horsepower. In any case, you are on country road speed in less than ten seconds and reach more than 200 km / h top speed. Only the entry-level version - the Mini One - is not available as "Seven".
In return, the other four variants shine in the Mini Yours bodywork finish in Lapisluxury Blue. In addition to this, there are three other variants to choose from, while the roof and exterior mirrors shine in silver. The optional Melting Silver bonnet strips are trimmed in Malt Brown. There are also attractive 17-inch light alloy wheels and “Seven” door sill panels.
Inside the Mini Seven comes up in a fabric / leather combination in "Diamond Brown". This noble color is complemented by surfaces in piano lacquer, while the color line "Malt Brown" is subject to a surcharge. Also optional, but recommended, is the Seven Chili equipment package, which, in addition to LED headlights and LED fog lights, has many other niceties, such as automatic climate control, an on-board computer, mini driving modes, a sports steering wheel, of course in leather and with multifunction, a rain sensor , a storage and lighting package and mandatory floor mats.
The much-celebrated go-kart feeling comes from the dynamic damper control and is supported by the fact that the body and chassis are designed in a weight-optimized design. The safety equipment includes everything that protects in the event of an accident as standard. Preventive or comfort-enhancing assistants are not available free of charge. So the current Mini comes very close to its ancestors, after all, they didn't offer much more than four wheels and the steering wheel. Only then was the driving fun a little less cloudy.
