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

In fact, if you discount the super-limited JCW GP hatch of 2006, it’s the first production two-seater in Mini’s 50-and-a-bit-year heritage. Behind the driver is a space for a couple of coats or a dachshund stored transversely, then a whacking great lump of plastic cladding separating cabin from the 280-litre boot (bigger than the Clubman’s, no less).
The hat-wearing Coupe is certainly a more... challenging piece of design than the sleek Audi and curvaceous Peugeot (though, while we’re on the subject, when is Peugeot going to graft the 508’s far more palatable nose on to the RCZ?).
