The Motor Report Gives The 2011 MCS Hatchback Four Stars

The Motor Report gives the 2011 MINI Cooper S Hatchback four out of a possible five stars. Here's its verdict:
The Cooper S is still the big seller in the MINI stable and it's easy to see why. Few cars come with such driver appeal and on-road cred wrapped into a package with such irresistible lines and character.

The MINI, as a modern interpretation of a design masterpiece, ticks nearly every box. Whether as a turbodiesel, wagon (Clubman), or even SUV (Countryman) – it simply seems to work.

The Cooper S is frugal, fun and practical and packs a hot-hatch punch. Put it high on the list.
