Motor Editors Pan The New MINI Cooper S

In an editorial review of the best and the worst of 2014 a number of editors of Australia's Motor pan the 2014 MINI Cooper S. Editor Dylan Campbell complains:
Mini Cooper Ss haven’t traditionally made the greatest performance cars. But you always forgave them because, by god, if a devilish titter didn’t erupt from your gob during a fast blast up your favourite road, you needed emotional defibrillating. But the new Mini Cooper S, while no doubt a better car than its predecessor, feels heavy, mired in too many electronics and just less fun.
Staff Journalist Louis Cordony observes:
A great platform in dire need of aesthetic and handling venom. Proper tyres and soon to be released JCW package couldn’t come sooner.
