You have to admire the marketing genius. BMW, with its reputation for build quality and dynamic excellence fully in play, reinvents the most brilliantly packaged car in history as... the worst packaged car of modern times. And yet still makes it a huge success. Terrific fun, but threatened by estate agent overkill.

  • Clubman

    A folly, albeit a likeable one. Revisiting the original Mini's most useful hour, but without the usefulness. Shaped like a van, but with the load capacity of a shoebox.

  • Convertible

    The new Mini Convertible Cooper S is more than just a cutesy chick-mobile. This little beauty has fire in its belly.

  • Countryman

    The Mini purists would have committed suicide. It's a smart, practical car. But it's in no way a pure, fun, Mini.
