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.
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
An extraordinary piece of design marred by sub-par mechanicals.
A bit of all sorts but great at none of it. Just been facelifted - but that changes nothing.
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.
