Urban MINI assault course

We drive the new MINI on a tight urban course right in the middle of town…

Though I’d like to claim it was my excellent driving, credit actually goes to the positive set up of the MINI’s steering rack that pulls the nose towards the apex every time you let off the throttle. Making the course extremely easy to navigate by simply throttling off when the inner barriers get too close.

However, the true test of the MINI’s agility came when we attempted the short course set up on the gravel car park. The fast steering rack of the iconic hatch quickly shone through in the tight course making the quick direction changes a breeze.

It’s safe to say that nothing has changed in the handling department and the MINI is still a joy to toss around with a chuckle. Now with the new 2.0-litre 192bhp power plant under the hood, it’s doing it with added punch!

But for those who prefer a slightly slower pace they can opt for the slightly less punchy but no less fun Cooper 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol variant with 136bhp. And if frugality is of utmost importance, the Cooper D diesel 1.5-litre 3-cylinder is available.
