The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
The Kia Cee'd is the car that lobs the paving slab of reality into the windscreen of preconception. It might be a straight clone of a Toyota/Ford/VW hatch, but it’s a damn good one.

Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
