MINI Report 08: Form over Function

Ergonomics?! That's part of a conversation we imagined taking place in the MINI Cooper interior design studio. Our long-term MINI has proven perfectly accommodating in our first few months together, but we've found the markings, placement and design of the levers, knobs and wheels less than ideal. It's all part of the charm, to be sure, but it's not terribly graceful in practice. Keep two hands on the wheel, however, and the MINI is a decidedly user-friendly pocket rocket.
