Mini Coupe v Peugeot RCZ v Audi TT
Does the new baseball-capped coupe rekindle the Mini mojo? Sam Philip reports...

Matching the RCZ on price almost pound-for-pound, the Coupe undercuts the equivalent TT by some three grand. But the Audi is simply in a different league. Pugnacious though it is, this top-spec Coupe is too obviously a descendent of the basest Mini hatch, a car less than half the price. Where the Peugeot and Audi hide their donor organs under original designs, the Mini doesn’t feel special, different enough to justify its premium price.
