Arv Voss' Take On The New MINI Hatchbacks

Arv Voss went to Puerto Rico for TFLCar to drive the new Hatchbacks.  A part of his impressions:
Driving the diminutive “funster” is a rewarding exercise, initiating an insatiable degree of lust to own one. The exhaust note of the Cooper S alone, may well be worth its additional cost. Add the potency of turbocharging to the maneuverability and stability provided by the sport-tuned suspension and the Cooper S is a clear winner, particularly when set in sport and manual modes, although the MINI Cooper 3-cylinder delivers the goods with aplomb and one would be hard pressed to realize that under the bonnet is not a four-cylinder engine. It’s that good.
