Car reviews - Mini - Hatch - Cooper
1 Jul 2002
By BRUCE NEWTON
AN audio system with AM/FM radio and in-dash single CD player is standard equipment on the Cooper. A bespoke and attractive design with simple, large push-button controls, it has 12 FM and AM presets and produces its sound via six speakers, four in the front doors and two in the rear side walls. The only real minus is that the volume and on/off functions are on the far side of the unit to the driver, necessitating a possibly distracting stretch across the cabin. Options include a six-CD player in the boot and an in-dash mini-disc player which replaces the CD. Also available from the end of 2002 is a Harmon Kardon system which includes eight speakers and a digital amplifier.
