2016 Mini Cooper S Clubman Review: Long-term report two

The first-generation Mini Clubman was a bit too quirky for its own good, but this new version, based on the Mini five-door is way more practical. But is it worthy of the Cooper S badge?

2016 Mini Cooper S Clubman Review

Read the article here. The previous Mini Clubman was perhaps a bit too quirky for its own good, particularly with those suicide doors on one side only, which were rather inconveniently placed on the wrong side of the car – at least for this country. But this new version, based on the Mini five-door, is far more grown up – and way more practical – especially if you intend to use those extra doors – six in total...

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...

2017 Mini Countryman pricing and specs

The second-generation Mini Countryman crossover will be priced from $39,900 plus on-road costs when it arrives in Australia at the end of March, an increase offset by significant specification increases.

The 2017 Mini John Cooper Works (JCW) Countryman has been revealed this week, with the hot SUV the most powerful model ever produced by the German-owned British brand.

Mini celebrates three million cars at Oxford plant

Mini's manufacturing facility in Oxford, UK, has celebrated its three millionth car this week - a Mini Clubman John Cooper Works. The milestone comes in the Oxford facility's 15th year of production and parent company BMW's centenary year. In 2001 the plant was producing around 300 cars a day, and now builds at a rate of around 1000 vehicles per day - meaning the 4500-strong team in Oxford produces one new Mini almost every minute...

2016 Mini Cooper JCW All4 Countryman review

When I first got allocated this Mini Cooper JCW Countryman (as a company car), I was apprehensive. Although I'm a big fan of the Mini brand, the Countryman is an oddball shape. Compared to the Mini hatch, the proportions looked bloated, and dare I say it, ugly. But the JCW version looks so tough that I've came to love its aggressive body kit, blacked-out headlights and machined 19-inch alloys...

2002 Mini Cooper S review

I knew it was love when I laid eyes on 'Rori' in Barwon Heads on a summer day in 2010. I've had a penchant for Minis since attending a dealer launch in 2001. Rori was in the quintessential spec that matched the poster on my bedroom wall. And Indy Blue Cooper with Chilli pack, with white roof, mirror caps and wheels...

2012 Mini Cooper S Goodwood Review

Inspired or not? Four years on and I still love this car. It has traveled just over 10,000 km in that time, and every time it's taken out from under its cover it is a joy to drive. It has never been a daily driver, with its role being a weekend and club run car. I love that it is understated from the outside, however from the inside it is like no other Mini...

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...
