5. Divisive style
To some it says urban cool. To others it says cute. And to others it says, please, stop trying so hard (see above).
All the previous points are moot depending on what side of the fence your aesthetic preferences land. And really, aside from the high price, stiff drive and those toggle switches that make you want to hit the dash with a sledgehammer, it’s the MINIs style that for most folks will keep you away, or have you rushing to your nearest dealership.
