I had the privilege to drive this German machine for a long 500 km drive from Kolkata to Puri in the Mini (5- seater). With a drive ranging from congested city rides to highway cruises. Within city limits, it is easy to maneuver making it an ideal city rider for our daily commute. The 6-speed automatic gearbox makes it that much easier. As we move on the highway the real throttle response of the powerful engine comes into the picture.
