It probably sounds silly but so far really love my MINI PHEV. It's fun, stylish, practical and makes my normally dreary commute a lot more enjoyable. Favourite features; thanks to the 10 kWh battery typically drive electrically 30 miles daily. Which is terrific. Preheating by timer or app is super practical and as a bonus tips up the battery. Love the design both the exterior and interior. The Harman Kardon stereo is top notch. What's not so great? Adaptive Cruise control shuts itself off way too often. Camera based system. LED lights are good but the family's Insignia's matrix LEDs play in a different league.

Top 3 things - 1. acceleration, 2. silence, 3. fast 100% charge (2 hours 15mins), Worst 5 things 1. Very limited electric range (15-20 miles max), 2. Can't get congestion zone permit as no certificate of compliance provided by Mini 3. It can't tow caravans or anything else 4. Satnav was useless but now there is an upgrade with a 4G SIM slot, 5. Poor mileage if driving say 60 miles a day commute as engine is hauling around an unused battery pack and motors
