MSN Autos Canada's Quick Spin In A 2012 MCS Coupe

Justin Couture reviews the 2012 MINI Cooper S Coupe for MSN Autos Canada. Couture concludes:
Any way you slice it, $31,000 for a two-seat sports coupe is a lot of money — we're talking certified pre-owned BMW Z4 territory. However, there's plenty to like about it. Out of all the cars we've tested this year, not one has garnered as much attention as the little red Coupé, and none has put a smile that simply cannot be wiped off our faces.

It is true that the Mini Cooper S Coupé does not accelerate more quickly, pull more g-forces around a corner or stop any faster than a standard Cooper S. It is not cheaper, more fuel efficient, or more practical either. But Mini did not promise any of this — only that it's fun. And so, if that's what you're after, we'd say the admission price is worth the while — placebo effect or otherwise.
