Motor Trend Gets A 2013 MINI Cooper S Coupe

Motor Trend has obtained a 2013 MINI Cooper S Coupe for long term testing. After a few weeks with the vehicle writer Carlos Lagos thinks, in part:
. . . I've become a disciple of its peculiar styling and questionable functionality for one reason: It's huge fun. It enters corners with entertaining authority and meets upshifts with addictive exhaust pops and backfires. Only when you apply throttle on corner exit does understeer appear, and the absence of a limited-slip becomes apparent. Though not as aggressive as a Focus ST, this Mini feels far more refined.
