Exceptional thrills and looks, but don't think that it's an everyday car.
The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
