Automobile Goes "Around The Block" With The 2014 MCS

Eric Weiner reviews the 2014 MINI Cooper S for Automobile Magazine and makes a few interesting observations, such as:
With the 2014 Mini Cooper S, the larger 2.0-liter engine sadly lacks some of its predecessor's zip, even though the new car is faster and more powerful. “I miss the 1.6-liter's eagerness and high-revving nature,” said associate web editor Joey Capparella.
