2018 Mini Cooper S Countryman review

Brand mismatches are the new normal. Mini makes cars that aren’t small, in the same way Porsche makes models that aren't dedicated sports cars. Does that make them any less valid? In the case of the Mini Cooper S Countryman, not one little bit.

Audi Q2 1.4 TFSI v Mini Cooper Countryman comparison

Small SUVs, especially 2WD variants, are something of an anomaly in the makeup of the modern motoring landscape. They rarely offer the same space or practicality as a comparable hatchback, and they almost never deliver driving ability or comfort anything like that of an SUV. Therefore, in objective terms, they don’t seem to do anything especially adeptly – on paper at least...

2018 Mini Countryman John Cooper Works All4 review

I had always imagined that the expression "May you live in interesting times" was a positive statement that hoped that the person who was on the receiving end of those words would enjoy a full and fascinating life. As it turns out, it may well be that the origins of the expression could be a Chinese curse, which would make it kind of appropriate in the interesting times we are all currently navigating...

2018 Mini Countryman John Cooper Works All 4 review

If you are like me and were tasked with the job of teaching your kids to drive, you will know that the hardest thing about getting a licence is the reverse park and the hill start.
