2016 Mini Clubman Review

Mini as a brand has grown substantially from the days of just making cute little hatchbacks in their iconic shapes. But now with the Clubman, the brand is venturing out further than it has ever done before.

2015 Mini John Cooper Works Review

It’s easy to wonder what the late John Cooper, British motorsport legend and fast Mini originator, might make of the latest 2015 Mini John Cooper Works model to bear his namesake. For one thing, at 170kW, the third-generation JCW of ‘BMW’s Mini’ has as much horsepower as Cooper’s finest race machinery back in the day...

Audi A1 v Mini Cooper : Comparison review

‘Premium light’ is a term for more than just watered-down beer charged exorbitantly at the footy. The reborn Mini Cooper and original Audi A1 each ask around double that of similarly sized hatchbacks, which start from around $15K, but their makers would argue they are big on flavour and … well, premium-ness. For buyers living in the big smoke, they should be close to ideal...

Mini Cooper S v Renault Clio RS : Comparison Review

Old v New : 1994 v 2014 Subaru WRX, 1989 v 2014 Peugeot GTi, 1968 v 2014 Mini Cooper S

Comparing old with new might seem like an unfair comparison because, with few exceptions, new models are bigger, safer, more refined and more economical, often quicker, too. All of which might leave an earlier iteration without a hope. However, the flipside is that previous models are smaller and rawer, which are negatives if you’re talking about a Corolla, but can be desirable qualities in the rarefied realm of high-performance icons...

2008 Mini Cooper Review

A cold, winters morning at the nation's action track, Winton Motor Raceway in northern Victoria. Thankfully it's dry as I'm here for another weekend in my favourite car. The car in question is a fully race prepared, fire breathing MINI. This MINI is unlike many other MINIs in Australia...

2002 Mini Cooper Review

I must admit that I did get a little carried away with the whole driving in the UK thing. After driving every day since I acquired my drivers licence on the morning of my 18th birthday in my native Melbourne, the 3 months of travelling that halted all driving experiences here in Europe, around some of the best driving roads in the world mind you, was enough to get me to run straight into the shiny arms of an R53 BMW Mini Cooper S...

This car is a testament to the philosophy that a car does not have to be powerful in order to be fun to drive...
