2016 MINI HARDTOP: "It's faster - has more efficient technologies, even more fun to drive." That's how the 2016 Mini Hardtop is being reviewed by the media. The Mini hardtop is powered by a vigorous MINI TwinPower turbo. Engineered and developed with the expertise of the BMW Group, both the 134-horsepower 1.5-liter three-cylinder and 189-hp 2.0L four-cylinder engines deliver raw power, with torque supplied right away and then steadily throughout the car's power curve. A choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission is offered. And, the '16 Mini comes endowed with legendary go-kart handling. All four wheels have been pushed to the corners for the bulldog stance and impeccable front-to-back weight balance. The wide track and short overhangs emphasize the vehicle's body more strikingly than ever before as it sits powerfully on top of the wheels. For even tighter control, the new Variable Damper Control (VDC) option lets you adjust suspension stiffness. So whether you want a softer, more fuel-efficient ride or a stiffer, corner-devouring one, the VDC complies. A new offering is the full-color Head-Up Display that is activated by a flick of the toggle on the dash, letting you keep tabs on your speed, navigation and other important info without ever taking your eyes off the road ahead. The four-seat cabin offers extended spatial comfort as well as a luggage compartment volume expanded by three cubic feet to a total of 8.7 cubic feet. There is also a feature that makes parallel parking easier by use of sonic sensors, and Mini's Park Distance Control system that takes over and steers the car into place - all you have to do is work the gas and brake when the system prompts you.
