The Vancouver Sun selects the 2012 MCS as one of its "Five terrific runabouts that won't break your bank account."   It writes about the MINI:
This sporty compact packs some extra punch, and with a low centre of gravity, there is no reason to slow down for the corners. Wrapped up in a funky, London-cool package, the Mini Cooper S will keep you feeling young as you blast along, reaching highway speed in seven seconds, windows down, listening to the capable turbocharged engine. Inside the cabin, Mini appears thoughtfully designed with quality materials. Being a notable fuel sipper means far fewer visits to the town pump. Also worth noting is that you can get yourself into a base-model Cooper for $21,950. Of all the colour options, British Racing Green looks the most upmarket. One of the best vehicles in its price range.
