New Car: MINI 1499 GT 2018 review

New Car: MINI 1499 GT 2018 review Buyers have a choice of just two colours – Pepper White or the Midnight Black of the car in our pictures – but common to both are distinctive side stripes and the John Cooper Works Sport Pack. This includes black 17-inch alloys, tinted windows and white indicator lenses, as well as unique bumpers, side skirts and a split-level spoiler. The car is also fitted with sports suspension, while the sports seats are part-trimmed in leather, and the multi-function steering wheel has red stitching. The finishing touches are various black details around the cabin, as well as an anthracite roof lining. That’s all very well and good – after all, much of the MINI’s appeal lies in how much you can personalise it – but in many ways, the weak link is the base car. For us, the MINI One’s petrol engine just doesn’t have enough power to make the most of the MINI’s chassis or to provide the kind of performance the bodykit suggests it should be capable of. The engine can be rather hesitant away from the mark, unless you rev it pretty hard – in fact, it’s quite easy to stall the car; it doesn’t accelerate all that quickly, even once you’re up and running; and, last but not least, it doesn’t sound all that sporty, either. Of course, being a MINI, the 1499 GT handles really well, and that famous ‘go-kart’ feel is all present and correct. So, this car is a lot of fun to drive. But, the sports suspension results in a ride that is too firm too much of the time. And, while we’re talking about downsides, as in any MINI, the cabin is a bit of a mess in terms of its ergonomics. The buttons and switches are scattered seemingly at random across the dashboard, while the 1499 GT – which comes only with the three-door body – is far from the most practical car of its type.

New Car: New limited edition MINI 1499 GT review

New Car: New limited edition MINI 1499 GT review Although based on the standard MINI, the 1499 GT has features that are lifted from the John Cooper Works model, such as 17-inch Track Spoke black alloy wheels, dark tinted windows and the JCW’s distinctive bodykit with beefed up bumpers, side skirts and a split level spoiler. Performance-wise, the limited edition model is powered by a three-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 102bhp; MINI claims it can cover 0-60mph in 10.1 seconds. Independent rear suspension, disk brakes and a six-speed manual gearbox are also equipped. The interior also gets the JCW treatment with sports seats and perforated black leather trim with red stitching. The 1499 GT has MINI Connected smartphone compatibility, cruise control, air conditioning and a Visual Boost radio. The 1499 GT costs £16,990 and despite its exclusivity, customers can acquire one through Mini Financial Services for £299 per month and a £299 customer deposit with one years’ inclusive comprehensive insurance.
