One of the great things about a MINI is how incredibly customizable they are, inside and out. With our racing roots, it was only natural that you should be able to customize performance on the fly. So if you're feeling especially frisky, kick into Sport mode. A push of a button will modify acceleration, steering and suspension settings for even tighter, more aggressive performance. On vehicles with an automatic transmission, shift points and gear changes are also enhanced for performance-oriented driving.
