Car's Long Term Review Of The 2015 MINI Five Door

U.K.'s car provides a long term review of the 2015 MINI Cooper Five Door and concludes:
Meantime, as for impressions, so far I’ve only driven it nine miles back to our flat, stuck a parking pass in the window and left it alone on the mean streets of Barnes – but the engine is punchy and the interior feels genuinely special at night, while the ride is a tad tough (so thank goodness it doesn’t have the optional run-flats) and there’s no way I’m going to get near the official fuel consumption figure around London.

GQ Reviews The Five Door MINI Cooper

GQ reviews the new MINI five door for its Indian debut and concludes:
For BMW, the five-door Mini Cooper was a gamble. Clearly, it’s played a winning hand by showing that you can cede ground to the practical and carpool friendly brigade and still come up with a ride that appeals to the most ardent Mini fan. To which we say, borrowing a leaf from The Great Gatsby: “Mini Cooper, you always had our curiosity, but now you have our attention.”
