Jeremy Clarkson's MINI Review

.
Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, writing for Driving in the U.K.'s The Sunday Times, reviews the 2014 MINI Cooper and is not completely enthusiastic.  He gives it a 3 out five stars and concludes his piece:
I could explain until I’m blue in the face that the Ford Fiesta is a better car and that the Fiesta ST is one of the all-time great hot hatchbacks. But you want a Mini. I get that.
So. It’s probably best to spend a bit more and buy the Cooper S, which has a 2-litre engine and therefore plenty of oomph, or save a bit and buy either the basic One, or even a diesel. Certainly I wouldn’t bother wasting your cash on too many of the options or you’ll end up with what the company sent me: a £25,000 mobile discotheque.

It’s not mini and it’s not a Cooper either.
