2016 Mini Cooper S Convertible Review

Able to trace its heritage back to 1959, the Mini has long been a cool car. But is the all-new, third-generation Mini Cooper S Convertible a cool car?

2016 Mini Cooper Convertible review

The Mini Cooper Convertible is bigger than ever but can it prove its prowess as an enjoyable winter mode of transport without relying on the drop-top factor?

2016 Mini Convertible Review

The new Mini Cooper Convertible is a little larger than before, but retains much of the retro charm of the outgoing model. It's still a great little driver's car too, with engine variants and gearbox options to suit most buyers.

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...

Mini Cooper S v Renault Clio RS : Comparison Review

The new-generation Mini is all grown-up. So can the Cooper S cut it against one of its toughest rivals?

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...

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...

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...

2007 Mini Cooper Review

I've had this car for approximately 2 years and am a very happy and satisfied owner. It's a 2007 R56 (2nd gen) MINI Cooper finished in "Sparkling Silver Metallic" (A light champagne gold colour) optioned with the Chrome Line package. This car is a testament to the philosophy that a car does not have to be powerful in order to be fun to drive...
