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.
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
An extraordinary piece of design marred by sub-par mechanicals.
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.
A bit of all sorts but great at none of it. Just been facelifted - but that changes nothing.
