There’s nothing quite like the thrill of getting behind the wheel of a MINI Cooper and testing out the legendary handling and surprisingly large power hiding under the MINI’s hood. For anyone who’s driven a MINI, there’s no question about how much pure, unadulterated fun it is. So why then aren’t there more MINIs on the road? Well, sadly, not everyone has had a chance to take a few laps in a John Cooper Works MINI Cooper 3 Door, or to tackle the slick and snowy roads of Edmonton in the all-wheel drive equipped MINI Cooper Countryman ALL4. Well, we’re going to propose something to you, something that isn’t entirely revolutionary but you just may not have thought of it: take a test drive, we dare you! We’re confident that once you get behind the wheel of a MINI, you’ll want one of your own.
Since its inception in 1959, the MINI has been a paragon of style and performance. Turning heads due to its unique design, the MINI has become a style icon in its own right, including a starring role in The Italian Job (both the original and the remake). Now, we’re not saying that getting behind the wheel of a MINI is going to make you look more glamorous—but there’s no way it could hurt. At the very least, you could test drive one and find out.
Another common objection by those who’ve never driven a MINI, usually goes along the lines of “there’s no way a car that small can handle an Albertan winter;” and those people could not be more wrong! The MINI Cooper is incredibly sturdy, and loaded with safety features. Even in the event of an accident the MINI’s unique breakaway engine will drop under the vehicle if the impact is great enough, ensuring the safety of the driver and any front seat passengers. Add in MINI’s ALL4 all-wheel drive system, Dynamic Stability Control, and Hill Hold Control, and you’ve got a vehicle that can handle any inclement weather that gets thrown its way. Of course, you’d know all that if you gave it a test drive…
The MINI Cooper, available at MINI Edmonton in five different models, all with multiple trim levels, is the type of car that has you jumping up at the mention of an empty milk carton, or any other reason to get behind the wheel. Of course, you’d only know this if you’d driven one. So come by MINI Edmonton today and take a test drive—we dare you.
