A Bleakney Review Of The 2016 MINI JCW Hatch

Peter Bleakney provides a first drive review of the 2016 MINI John Cooper Works for Autos.ca. His thinking:

Oh yes, it will be pricey if you linger too long on the options list, but either way, it presents itself as a uniquely spicy alternative to the buttoned-down GTI, the raucous Ford Focus ST, the sublime Ford Fiesta ST and that Italian/Mexican/Tasmanian Devil known as the Fiat Abarth.
